Roselind Wilson Design was appointed to provide the full interior design service for this 5,500 square foot Mock Tudor property in Richmond.
The property was built in 1920 and extended in 1960. The original Annexe was separate from the main building but after a full refurbishment, it was joined to the main house. The interior design was carried out in two phases with the first comprising the Children's bedrooms in the main house and the Au Pair's bedroom and Guest bedroom on the upper floor of the Annexe. The second phase included the interior design of all the reception rooms, Kitchen, Master bedroom, Master Ensuite, Dressing room and Study, including the design of the oak panelled Snug and Sunday Rooms. These exquisite rooms hold the original features of the house and were regarded as the heart of the home.
When approaching the design of each of the rooms, Roselind Wilson Design carefully considered the architectural style and existing features of the property as well as personal elements such as the children’s hobbies and favourite colours and the owner’s own unique pieces of art. In the daughter’s room, the palette of duck egg blues and soft lavenders form the perfect backdrop against the textures, gentle floral fabrics and woollen throws. The walls of the son’s bedroom are decorated in a soft, warm grey and complement the timber exposed beams to provide a rustic take on the contemporary look. In the Snug, the eclectic mix of classic and contemporary styles is evident in the use of finishes and bespoke furnishings. The colour palette of this room has subtle warm undertones with further texture added by the placement of a parchment drum used as a side table. For the Master bedroom Roselind and her team opted not to add any furnishings that would conflict with the stunning architectural feature of the exposed beams and trusses. Instead, furnishings were paired down with the focus very much on humble textures.
The close collaboration between Roselind Wilson Design and the owners of the property has allowed for the realisation of their dream residence - a beautiful, characterful family home with a hierarchy of exquisite family rooms, notably the Snug and Sunday Rooms with its dark original oak panelling and original lighting.
