Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"Over the last year, we have completed a development of 77 Flats designing and supplying kitchens, designed and installed bathrooms in a Victorian Terraced House and designed and installed multiple bespoke kitchens, wardrobes and joinery. 

Our most recent project is one we are most proud of - a full renovation of a Victorian Terraced House in South West London. The bones of the house were good and no structural work was needed, however, we changed the interior layout of a few areas to generate more usability. We swapped a dark master ensuite and dressing room around creating a light, peaceful master suite and built a laundry cupboard on the generous first-floor landing. The colour palette and aesthetic throughout have a very organic feel, layered with textures and using natural materials throughout. We are strong advocates for Biophilic Design and passionate about creating healthy homes that are true sanctuaries from the busy lives that we all lead. "
