A 1930s living room gets a new lease of life

Previously being used as dining area, this room was transformed into a luxury hideaway for the family. Open fireplace and sumptuous finishes of velvets and copper accents create a welcoming space with a hint of surprise with the dramatic wallpaper.

Multi functional living for young family

 

Following a complex brief this home has been able to create space for dining, relaxing and playing too. By relocating the main living area to the front of the house, it was possible to create a spacious dining area nestled alongside a more 'relaxed' seating area for the children - utilising the previously unused sunroom space as a well organised playroom. By removing a very dated overpowering large brick fireplace the room instantly felt wider and the introduction of a log burner brought warmth back into the room.

Victorian Terrace goes high-end

A classic side return was added to this deceptively large Victorian Terrace to create a wonderful open plan kitchen, living and dining area. Careful zoning of each space was needed in this open plan area so that it would function best for a busy family. An additional loft area was also added which significantly increased the upstairs living areas.

A place to sit and relax

Everyone needs a place where they can relax and unwind after a long day. This attractive living space was painted out in a rich hue so that the room felt more welcoming and gave a sense of 'cocooning'. Bright and light during the day then cosy and warming as the evening approaches.

Where everyone can hang out

This bold colour is a perfect backdrop for a room that has to house a mish-mash of well loved furniture and accessories. By dressing the room in a relaxed way it is a flexible space that can be used by the whole family and for visiting friends. 

 

Let's eat........

Tackling a very dark room can sometimes be a bit daunting. With little light source into this room it was a case of 'embrace the dark'. A very dark room with little light is never going to become a bright white space so it sometimes pays to just embrace the room for what it is and tackle it head on. This is what we did in this Edwardian dining area. The deep dark hue, mixed with an eclectic selection of curios and one off finds, makes this dining space an enchanting space that welcomes you to sit, eat and relax.

A long awaited bright new kitchen extension 

This impressive large kitchen extension was added to a 1930s semi and has transformed the entire downstairs living area. Now with separate utility, snug and dining areas, the family have the open plan living they have desired for many years.

Dark sophisticated hideaway with classical finishes

 

Fitting this stunning vintage parquet flooring set the tone for this atmospheric room. Deep grey walls and woodwork created a seamless design giving a delightful feeling of space. Luxurious finishes of leather, velvet and quality metals lend an opulent, rich feel where the owners can relax in the evenings.

 

 

Family Living | Playroom

This family had recently moved and were desperately trying to make at least one room in their new home feel like 'home'. With 2 very young children a key part of the brief was to ensure there was enough room for 'play'. An area where they could keep their toys and sit and read whilst at the same time, create a well designed space for them all to sit and relax, watch TV that didn't feel too themed around the children.

A beautiful Victorian Town House gets a new sleeping area.

 

Boasting beautiful proportions and original detailing, this stunning Victorian Town House already had a lot in it's favour. However, an additional loft bedroom, bathroom area was required. Set in a conservation area planning was extremely difficult and the permitted planning was smaller than expected but careful use of space and bespoke fittings and fixtures created a beautiful addition to this home.

Family kitchen | diner redesign

The core units of this kitchen were in good order and the granite worktop was sound so we created a concept around these. We removed some of the more dated top units, changed the extractor fan and handles and painted all the units. New pendant lighting was added and leather bar stools. The dining area was brought to life with wonderful wallpaper from Smink Things.

Fiona Duke Interiors has been commissioned to redesign the entire rectory which consists of 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and large ground reception areas.
