What Houzz contributors are saying:
Let darker rooms come into their ownBecause the lights are on in winter anyway, embrace the low-lit atmosphere with small, warm pools of light wherever you can. Switch on table lamps and wall sconces and have a gently glowing fire for that ultimate cosy feeling.
Throughout the house, Wells used new wood for the flooring and then had it treated in situ to look aged. The ground floor contains his and hers studies. This is the largest of the two studies (hers) and it features bespoke panelling and shelving. ‘The panelling was an extremely complex design with an inset mirror,’ says Wells. ‘It’s made from sapele wood, which is similar to mahogany and was sourced in Africa, but with protected and monitored felling.’ All the lampshades were handmade to suit the scheme.The house’s listed building status meant the original cornicing had to remain visible, so Wells had the study shelving built just below it.Armchairs, de Gournay.
