The goal was to create a home that was warm, inviting and unfussy. “They wanted to update it with a modern, airy aesthetic so it could feel contemporary but still relate to the actual architecture of the house,” Jessica says. It was also a project that was all about delicately blending two styles as the husband had an affinity for Mid-Century furniture while the wife preferred traditional pieces, colour and texture.
“We landed on a transitional look with new British designers and a blend of vintage and new pieces passed down from generations,” Jessica says. The home, which now has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, is multi-level and includes a garden level, parlour floor with the kitchen, dining room and living room, plus a library and master suite above, and lastly the children’s rooms on the fourth floor.
