17th Century Lakeland House

This project involved a full team of trades from builder, plumber and electrician to curtain maker, upholsterer and furniture maker.

We started by taking this 17th Century house back to its bare bones and set about creating an elegant and comfortable Lakeland bolt hole for its owners and their teenage sons.

Slate flags were laid throughout the ground floor and overlaid with sisal rugs in metallic shades in order to soften and lighten. Muted old whites were used in varying tones linking the spaces and wallpaper was chosen for two of the rooms.

Sofas and armchairs in soft printed velvets and linens were made-to-measure and luxury and warmth was created in the bedrooms with generously interlined curtains, sumptuous bedspreads and a bespoke needlepoint rug for the master room.
