Set in the Somerset hills, this beautiful old barn hadn’t been updated since its conversion back in the ’90s and the owners were keen to give it a refresh and bring it in line with 21st century living.
We were tasked with creating a fresh, contemporary home filled with natural light and a space that was super stylish but also inviting and practical enough to stand up to the day-to-day needs of family life.
The project covered everything from interior design to spatial planning, bathroom design, lighting, colour schemes, bespoke cabinetry, window treatments right down to furniture and accessories.
We re-developed an annexe to create a decadent master suite; a grown-up haven for relaxation, with its own private sitting room, dressing room and bathroom.
A formal drawing room and double-height reception hall were added, for that real sense of grandeur every time you walk in and we accentuated the original exposed beam detailing with hidden state-of-the-art lighting.
Concealed doors were used to make the space as versatile as possible – meaning the ground floor can adapt from one large open-plan room, perfect for entertaining, to more intimate, private spaces in a flash. This flexibility also allows the layout to evolve with the family.
The new-look barn is a modern light-filled wonder meets characterful country home and the serene space is one the family now want to spend lots of time in.
