Fairlawns, RichmondContemporary Bedroom

Whole house refurbishment and eco upgrade.

The Brief
This project is a feature for us on many levels – it’s a full Eco refurb with a range of low energy features as well as a space planning and mid-century modern style.

Our Solution
We have taken a 1960’s corner site with side extension capability and extended it over three floors, re-planning every single space in the process.

The client wanted a flexible family home, keeping the essence of the 60’s feel, but doing away with the shoddy 60’s construction replacing it with low impact, sustainable materials.
That achieved, we set about designing a heating, water and power strategy based on wood pellet and solar technology, adding a water softener and low water use appliances and energy saving kit to give the client a future-proofed, low impact home.

Yes, it won some awards but we’re not bragging…

Introducing synthetic fillingsChoosing your duvet and pillow filling really comes down to preference and budget. Although natural fillers are commonly thought of as a luxurious, preferred choice, technology has come a long way in creating good synthetic alternatives. ‘Synthetic fillers fall into two main camps: microfibre and hollowfibre,’ explains Charlie Hunt of Soak & Sleep. ‘Microfibre is a fine strand of fibre and so soft to the touch that you would be forgiven for mistaking it for silk – perfect for mimicking the feel of a fluffy down duvet. Hollowfibre is a thicker, more wiry fibre with a hollow middle, making it a stronger, loftier – or ‘puffed-up’ – choice.’

Dabble with green If you don’t want to commit to green, you can dip in and out of the colour by swapping and changing your bedding and accessories. This graphic leaf green and white duvet cover creates the most invigorating partnership with the zesty lemon chair. And if you get bored with the look, simply throw on another cover.
