Contemporary Case Study 1

A beautiful inherited home needed to be significantly remodelled to respond to the current occupant's needs whilst respecting the heritage of the cottage. The client required Oliver Steer Interior Design to incorporate their own complex ideas for a modern family home containing multifunctional spaces to live, work, relax, and play, for a family with three children.

Each room is distinctive but designed to link with the next. For example, the study was designed to be stylish and practical as a link between the kitchen and the hallway. Bespoke Shaker-style sliding panels hide equipment and office, and a small intimate seating area was configured for reading and relaxation.

The large family room, formerly an indoor swimming pool, was naturally lit with muted tones and given low furniture that harmonised with the landscaped exterior and provided views of the new indoor pool.

Throughout the house luxurious materials such as leather, walnut, and suede, feature in details to achieve a sophisticated design for contemporary living within this historic home.
