Details such as the polished brass butt hinges and delicate beehive knobs were a nod to the 18th century.
Like many of the Georgian properties in Bath, the back of the house had a rather less uniform shape than the front. During this unique home renovation it was necessary to observe the unique trapezoidal shape of the rooms throughout the home and we worked with designer Mia Marquez to come up with some stunning solutions. This was especially true of the Georgian house kitchen . The interesting shape allowed us to form an island to complement it, which avoided cramping the space.
Georgian house kitchen
We tucked a large floor standing fridge and adjacent freezer into a shallow alcove, with a bespoke framework formed around the perimeter and crown moulding to match. Soft lighting was employed within the glass fronted cabinets above the sink. The worktops were natural stone and we contrasted them with rustic oak for the island top. A clear glass splash back behind the oven was preferred to stainless steel in order to maintain the colour scheme. For the solid hardwood doors, we exactly matched the mouldings on the shutters in the home. To meet the need for storage, we imported some sophisticated German ironmongery. This included pull-out pantries and corner baskets. All drawers were on high load soft close runners and we incorporated some bespoke wicker baskets for bread and veg.
By using different shades of the same Little Greene colour on the walls and furniture, a feeling of completeness was achieved. The space was also made to feel bigger. Details such as the polished brass butt hinges and delicate beehive knobs were a nod to the 18th century. The crown mouldings on top of the wall cupboards were hand made to complement existing moulding patterns in the property.
As part of the full room renovation, we laid a beautiful Mandarin Stone limestone floor with a bespoke grout.
Trapezoidal Bathroom Design
The trapezoidal shape of the room matched the kitchen two floors below. This bathroom was again designed by Mia Marquez. Her architectural vision created a partition wall in the middle of the room, which separated the bathing and washing space from the dressing area. It allowed for two wall mounted sinks each with bespoke mirrors above and lighting. A cast iron bath was positioned under one of our sash windows onto a reinforced floor (not by us).
The bespoke furniture consisted of one wall mounted double sink cupboard, one alcove cupboard and floor to ceiling wardrobes, all handmade by Bath Bespoke. All fittings were soft close and finished in white eggshell. A bespoke cornice matched the original. Mandarin Stone marble tiles were used for walls and floor, laid with great care.
1920’s living room
The house oozed elegance and sophistication and this was something we really highlighted in the living room.We were asked to create these beautiful twin white cabinets and opted for a classic style to compliment the luxurious style of the room. When talking about the style of the twin cabinets we suggested a range of designs. The client wanted something elegant and fitting with the style but also something practical for modern day living. White was the perfect colour for this as it added light, complimented the window joinery and also brought out the colour of the wallpaper. Adding the gold mesh and gold handles worked well and tied the pieces in with the large wall mirror.
The cabinets featured a four tier bookcase / shelving and also a lower tier closed storage space with doors. This balanced the cabinet perfectly. It enabled detailing like the mesh and handles to be added and also allowed the client to add colour to the room through books and accessories.
