The client had a love of 1800 century antiques which they had acquired, but when placed altogether the collection was sombre. Paring back the selection to a few key pieces, together with the introduction of simple modern forms brought balance to the design. Critical to the success of the project was establishing a transitional style between the old and the new. Sumptuous textures were used to support this direction; a polished plaster finish for the remodelled fireplace, natural linens, velvet and leather for the furniture and a geometric patterned grass cloth wallpaper for the library walls.
