When designing an interior, the finest of details can make all the difference. It isn’t just a case of imagining the overall layout and selecting pieces that you like. Every element should work within a refined scheme, effortlessly complementing each other yet still holding their own purpose.
As our climate changes, we all want to feel that we are doing our bit to help the planet. From switching off a lightbulb when you leave a room, to embarking on a super-eco-conscious new build, every decision we make in our homes can help.
When viewing your new, perfect kitchen in your mind’s eye, making a conscious choice between a practical, innovative, minimalist design or an extravagant, bold maximalist one may seem to be the essential starting point. Two very different paths lay ahead.
As interior designers, we see countless trends come and go. Currently, for example, soft greys, quartz worktops and bright, open spaces are the cream of the crop. Kitchens of this design are, indeed, stunning. They have an air of simplicity and understated confidence. As da Vinci so famously said, “Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.”
The beauty of giving a bespoke service is that every one of our interiors are as unique as the clients we provide for. We are able to tailor each design to suit any preference, necessity and desire, no matter how detailed or specific.
Here in Cheshire, warm, sunny days are like gold dust. So when one comes along, we abandon the kitchen, hurriedly dig out our barbecues and deck chairs from the shed and make the most of the rarity. But outdoor dining doesn’t have to be limited to those few days of sunshine. With the right design, the outdoors can be moved into your home.
A new interior can change the shape of your home, but it can also contribute to the changing shape of our planet.
“There is no such thing as an original idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope.”
Having a keen interest in architecture for many years, David is often inspired by the numerous eras of buildings within Cheshire, Derbyshire and Greater Manchester.
