Siobhan Loates Design project

Family Home

A new build, 5 bedroom, property of individual design situated in Thame, Oxfordshire. The property was still under construction when we first started collaborating on the project.

The design reflects the cultural interests and experiences of our clients. All rooms naturally flow from the central landing and hallway, creating a number of interesting viewpoints. Whilst the home has a relaxed feel, each room has also been given its own personality. In one room it might be the artwork that is the key piece, in others an antique table or a chandelier. In every case the design has been developed to reflect both the client’s personalities and their shared cultural histories. For example, the antique Japanese screen holds specific meaning because the American client spent several years working in Japan.  The aerial beach photographs in the breakfast room are taken in California where they also have a house and remind the Portuguese client of her childhood.

We set out to deliver classic refinement through the use of Art Deco elements and classic modern 20th Century styling. As accent points we mixed contemporary designer pieces with ‘modern’ antiques from the last century, whilst artworks and favourite fabrics were used to inform colour schemes. The result is a beautiful, vibrant home.
