"The brief for this project in the first three images was an informal, contemporary take on traditional English country house style. The house had been variously extended from its eighteenth-century farmhouse roots with a myriad of small rooms. Victoria worked closely with the clients rethinking the space for modern family life and developing warm colourful schemes which play to the strengths of each room and have an air of relaxed luxury. Fabrics, wallpaper and antiques were sourced throughout, referencing the Edwardian period in which the house had been enlarged, with bespoke furniture commissioned for specific spaces. Inherited pieces and artwork were central to the designs, whilst antique prints and one-off lamps add character. Vintage and hand-woven rugs bring a sense of cohesion and flow to the space.  

The South Kensington penthouse apartment in the second three images needed a complete rethink. The brief was contemporary, edgy yet luxurious. The kitchen and double-height ceilings were opened up whilst the challenge of asymmetrical ceilings was overcome by sourcing sculptural pendant lights. By carefully reorganising the space, a second shower room was added and remote-controlled skylights and a glass roof were incorporated to maximise natural light and give easy access to the private roof terrace. A sleek compact kitchen keeps the focus on the dining area with its modernist pieces. In the living room, an ebonised bookcase lined with a metallic finish sets off the clean-lined furniture and shots of colour. In the main bedroom, floating bedside cabinets enhance the feeling of space."
