Union Street

Entrance / Living Space
The first thing we did in this space was to loose the door into the living room from the enclosed hallway and reposition it to the end of the corridor with a new arch leading you into the living room which works so much better. Also as if it wasn’t hard to miss anyway you get to enjoy our black and white stripped barn door to the upstairs when you walk through the door 🙂
In the entrance and living space we stripped off the old coving and replaced with authentic plaster cornice (not as easy as we thought it would be but it looks amazing and suits the era of the house perfectly giving it some real stature. This is complimented by the paneling that leads you into the living space and on one of the main walls that the large gold ornate framed Dan Hillier adorns!
The idea of this area was to sit and enjoy playing vinyl and reading whilst enjoying the wood burner.
In the opposite side of the room we added a 3 meter long bench seat which doubles as a sofa and dining seating for the table along with some very useful storage for such a small house. This works perfectly with the additional seating around the ‘Amsterdam’ table enabling us to have 7 around the table dining or a very large chill out sofa for Ljiljana and I to chill out and watch TV on in the event.
Another major improvement to the room was replacing the old double patio doors with a much larger single black framed door which opens up the view of the garden and connects the kitchen with the living space when sat on the bench seat.
The flooring throughout was replaced with Engineered Oak Parquet flooring (after extensive repairs to the rotten joists etc underneath).


The aim of the kitchen was to make it feel more open with clean lines with a large expanse of white tiles taken right up to the ceiling on the hob wall and narrow high wall cabinets. The light quartz worktops also lighten the space whilst the grey shaker cabinets give some depth to the space. We took the kitchen door out completely creating a deep recess that leads you through from the living room to the kitchen, helping the flow of the house. We painted the end wall in a deep teal to compliment the baby blue freestanding swan fridge freezer and also to give some interest when looking through from the living space. The handles and tap in copper continue the theme from the bathroom and give the house some continuity. Plants really bring the kitchen to life.
We wanted to create a real statement with the bedroom after being inspired by lots of arches, plaster techniques and paint lines that create a bit of trickery. The plaster on the wall was left exposed to bring some texture to the room and we painted the ceiling and skirting Lick green 02 and dropped the line of the ceiling lower that the coving and brought the level up above the skirting which gave it a twist and somehow made it feel both grander and more cosy.
We added the ceiling rose and created a loop with the gold twisted lighting cable and feather lamp to give some opulence.
The bespoke built in wardrobes were designed by us and built by the very talented Black Horse Joinery. Painted in Lick ‘Dusty Pink’ to match the plaster colour. All of the hardware in the room is in brass which works so well with the colour palette and the perfume bottles sit on a bronze tinted bevel edged mirror.
The arch has an exposed LED strip which gives it a slight Hollywood mirror feel.
The bed, bedside tables and mirror were up-cycled, the bed had some brass strips added to the headboard and a curved top added and then painted in the same Lick colour. The same approach was applied to the bedside tables with some cutting around to loose a decorative panel and the addition of some brass strips pair well with the bed.
The original wooden floor was repaired and repainted in black.


We wanted to create something classic but with a contemporary twist here. The use of monochrome throughout with the white tiles, black grout, black and white floor tiles and black units and bath panel give a classic timeless feel to to the space which really compliments the use of plants.
In order to give the room some warmth and personality we incorporated a copper vanity top under the wash basin and on both window ledges. The black shower and taps from Lusso Stone add some simplicity to the design.
Outdoor Patio and Garden.
For the outside area, we clad one of the walls in burnt larch with a shelf to hide pipework and double as a shelf for passing food and drinks through from the French windows in the kitchen and some storage for our recycling bins was created.
The gravel flooring was replaced with large format concrete look tiles which lead you into the garden and we added some uplighter to light up the beautiful Cotswold wall at night, the space really comes to life as the sun goes down.
