Annandale House

Autumn 18

Contrasting

Asymmetrical

Layered Textures

Annandale House is home to an engaging and dynamic young family - driven by a desire to update their home to more closely reflect their own sensibilities, we ambitiously began crafting interiors that told their story. Inspired by their contemporary art collection, her bohemian fashion sense, and their willingness to go bold, we composed a neutral palette with deeply contrasting finishes, that would capture the energy of the owners.

We reconfigured the open plan living spaces, relocating the kitchen closer to the garden and enhancing the flow of key spaces, without increasing the footprint. The new kitchen packs a punch with layered textural surfaces and sculptural shapes, while also offering much-improved storage and functionality. A new fireplace, a sneaky drinks bar and places to display his book collection were incorporated into the living room joinery design - the goal being to increase storage while keeping the space feeling light and without bulk.

With a considered and holistic approach, we designed spaces of calm and retreat away from the main open living area. Evidenced in the "spa" bathroom with its soft sage walls and pale terrazzo floors - this retreat bathroom depicts the calming effect that a carefully curated palette can have on the senses.

Our interiors are never short on texture and we appreciate the warmth and authenticity that hand-made materials bring. Textural, handcrafted details connect the spaces from the hand-woven pendant lights in the kitchen, leather-wrapped stair balustrade, the inky seagrass walls of the master bedroom, bespoke leather joinery hardware and brass touches in lighting - our Annandale project was carefully curated and crafted to create a contemporary and yet still comforting home.
