The brief was to complete two houses for the same client within the same year. The first, a large Edwardian house in Highland Perthshire and the second, a new-build holiday home in Sutherland. The main house involved major refurbishment work including demolition of a 3' thick retaining wall to create a large dining room open to the kitchen with a centrally positioned Aga creating cooking as theatre. Other building work included creating two new bathrooms, two dressing rooms, music room, gun room and a sitting room from the existing space. The house is traditionally furnished using best quality fabrics and workmanship to compliment the clients' own collection of art and antiques. Outstanding local contractors included Ardle Crichton, who built the kitchen to our own design and Stirling Stone, who sourced the Wild West granite from Brazil to surround the Aga. The second project was a turnkey, and the brief was to provide a comfortable, low maintenance holiday home on a limited budget and within a tight timeframe. The inspiration came from the clients’ own 1960s Danish teak sideboard with everything else from new. The clients wanted to avoid tartan in the holiday home and one lamp base from Anta is the only nod to the pattern. Natasha Marshall's retro fabrics complimented the new furniture throughout.
