Project name: Broad Walk, Winchmore Hill
Floor Area: 13,000 square foot
Project time taken: 2 years
Completion of Project: 2016
The owners of this impressive, modern new-build lovingly designed and rebuilt it over a period of 6 years and as a result, it showcases cutting-edge design, contemporary finishes and an exacting attention to detail that represents the affluence of this professional couple and their children.
The client was enormously proud of the outcome of the build and felt reluctant to furnish the property with bold finishes that might detract from the stunning interior architectural backdrop. However, they soon realised that the stark and minimalist interior proved too clinical and did not represent their personalities or lifestyle. They longed for a space that felt like home.
They contacted Roselind Wilson Design to discuss their design vision and aspirations to transform their property into a beautiful home with a considered interior scheme that would feel grand yet welcoming.
What was the creation / planning process?
The design process started with a trip to Maison et Objet in Paris and Salone de Mobile in Milan with the client to source furniture and gather inspiration for their desired interior look and feel. This allowed Ros and her team to get a good understanding of the client’s personal taste. Careful consideration was given to the generous space and layout of the property and the way the client wanted it to function as both an impressive entertaining space and a family home.
How did the project go?
We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to transform this magnificent property into a luxurious and welcoming home. The client’s appreciation of sophisticated finishes, plush textures and a rich colour palette allowed us to give prominence to luxurious layering and refined design details that balance the generous space. We relished in the opportunities to capitalise on the grand scale but at the same time, ensure the space expressed warmth and homeliness. This meant the use of soft, floor-length sheers throughout, to wash light across the rooms and allow transparency and a broad view across the rolling hills outside. In addition, bespoke furniture allowed us to consider function and aesthetic to meet the brief. Overall the project was a great success in that a sense of continuous space, intricate design details and a rich colour palette merge to create a luxe indoor-outdoor feel perfect for relaxed family get-togethers or elegant entertaining of guests.
What was your favourite room or part of the project and why?
The master ensuite that flows seamlessly off the dressing room is my favourite space within this grand family home. The sunken bath with elegant black glass chandelier above is a beautiful, striking feature in the centre of the room, while the fresh butterscotch colour palette adds a calm, serene mood. The automated lighting, electric blinds and flush mounted TV mean this is the perfect haven where the owners can escape to relax and unwind after a long day at the office.
Were there any issues or problems you encountered during the project?
The interior scheme was brought together through a combination of bespoke furniture pieces and those carefully selected at Maison et Objet and Salone de Mobile, which we visited with the client. All pieces were purchased and delivered to London for storage for immediate implementation. Our decoration scheme was carried out by the client’s own contractors, who were subject to delays which in turn caused a delay to the project completion date. This unfortunately resulted in the furniture pieces being stored for a long period before implementation. Thankfully all items were checked upon arrival and any problems were dealt with immediately to ensure no impact to the overall scheme.
