A couple in Dulwich Village wanted to update their home to become more modern

A project in Dulwich Village undertaken for a family was one of those that went so well, both designer and clients became friends after the work had been completed.

The client had a wealth of furniture which had been handed down as family heirlooms from the husband’s side of the family. The client wanted to keep it, along with the original features of the property, but for it to be updated with a more contemporary feel.

It was important to the client that, in the extension to the rear of the property, wooden windows and doors would feature and that the colour would give it a more modern feel. They also had an original brick wall in the kitchen which they loved and so they wanted to replicate it in the new extension.

Everything in the office area was bespoke made, as well as the bench around the rounded part of the extension.

The client had her own joiner she had worked with in the past, although the designer was happy to suggest their own preferred tradesmen if needed.

‘Working with the round corner was a real challenge as we wanted the seating area to follow the exact shape.

In the end it has worked out very well,’ Gloria Sanchez, lead designer, explains. The client was so happy with the work, they have asked them to fit the master bedroom.
