French country house
Is it possible to bring a bit of the Continent to SW1? Mais oui! This French couple hired us to oversee the total renovation of their “Pont Street Dutch” house, situated a stone’s throw from Harrod’s. A total reconfiguration of the floorplan gave the couple the flowing space and grand entertaining rooms they craved, while the addition of a new basement room under the garden created a family playroom for their 3 young children.
The colour palette was restrained in the main rooms and French antiques were liberally mixed with contemporary pieces. Elegant finishes such as verre églomisé and galuchat were incorporate into the bespoke joinery. All of which made this a home withthat “je ne sais quoi”.
