Laura Wheat added this to Decorating: How to Make Open-plan Design Work in Any Property9 Dec 2014

Go big on fixturesPeriod properties with vast open-plan reception rooms require statement furniture and fixtures that won’t get lost. Go for drama with elaborate chandeliers and pendants that make the most of high ceilings and add much-needed ambience on dark evenings.

Natalie Wain added this to Houzz Tour: A Victorian Home in Oxford is Totally Transformed30 Jun 2014

‘We made a lot of structural alterations to the old part of the house,’ says Kieron. ‘It’s a Victorian building and was designed for a different era. Back then, people wanted smaller, independent living spaces. We had to knock down a number of walls to create the wide, open-plan areas we have now.’ The client wanted to respect the traditional features in the original house without them overpowering the space. ‘She had a lot of ideas about what she wanted to achieve and we worked closely together to create this formal, but comfortable entertaining area,’ says Kieron. The client was particularly passionate about lighting, and statement chandeliers and pendants add visual interest throughout the home. Here, good lighting is essential. ‘This is naturally quite a dark space,’ says Kieron. ‘There is a large tree in front of the window, but the house is in a conservation area, so we had to respect it and leave it there.’
