Coatesville House

Photographer: Kevin Smith


The best of both worlds – A glamorous country life, tranquillity, and rolling hills married with a sophisticated European feel.

Our client wanted to renovate their country home without a complete overhaul. So, we teamed with some experts and specified some of the most beautiful fixtures and finishes available and designed these rooms. The bathrooms, flooring, and paint were fully updated whilst the kitchen received new tops and a new feature light. Using a neutral natural stone with a sandblasted finish paired with a veiny, darker, and braver looking stone brought a beautiful balance. Adding a Matt Gunmetal colour with the tapware and detailing contrasts well and by bringing the colour of the houses’ hardwood floors through to the vanity completes the design echo.
