Projects Case Study - Barn Conversion, Cheshire

Contact Us

This grade II listed barn conversion is certainly one of our favourites.... its owners carefully converted it into their home in 2007. We became involved once the structural work had been undertaken to look at the layouts, interior decor and furnishings. We worked alongside the client who was very much involved with the project, and has a wonderful eye for interior design.

The linear layout of the house meant we needed to ensure a sense of flow from room to room throughout. Each space was looked at on an individual basis and then alongside the adjoining room to make sure the scheme would be coherent. The tonal palette was created with the fabrics and wall coverings but it was essential that no individual item dominated the spaces. Fabric, texture and tones were the core of creating the rooms. Lots of samples were collected to enable us to create the mood boards so that the client could see what was being proposed for each room. We proposed various interior elements from curtains, sofas, throws, cushions, wall finishes, furniture, lighting, accessories and so on.

The kitchen is certainly the heart of this house. The hand crafted oak units have been married with stunning black granite worktops and there is a solid oak table where friends and family can sit and talk - it is so much more than a place to cook. Textured wallpaper was chosen for the wall behind the TV which just completes the room.

The lounge though is another space you don't want to leave! No matter what time of day this harmonious room is successful due to the right combination of finishes, scale of furniture and symmetry. The warm colour palette combined with layering the textures and fabrics creates a luxurious and sumptuous feeling. The mirrors, either side of the chimney breast accentuate the size of the room and reflect more daylight into the space.

This is a stunning family home with wonderful spaces all of which have that luxurious touch.
