How would you describe your style?

"We believe that the design process is a dialogue; an active, two-way conversation between ourselves and our clients. From the initial meeting to final completion, we strive to develop and nurture the relationships that we maintain with our clients, ensuring that communication is clear, regular and understood by both parties. We take the client's vision and make it a reality, ensuring we listen and create a design sympathetic to their needs but adding the Honky contemporary statement - something we strive to bring to each project."

"Situated within the quiet country lanes of Jersey, The Living Legend site was once Jersey’s top family attraction theme park. It has now been given a new lease of life in its transformation into a high-end development. It was our aim to ensure that the design fully reflected the exclusive lifestyle of its potential buyers whilst complementing the architecture of the building. The development offers two very different designs, one being a relaxed countryside farmhouse and the other a contemporary family home. The key to our brief was to distinguish between the two different styles of living and focus on a sleek modernist approach in contrast to the already successful farmhouse show home.

We were able to create a luxury, yet relaxed design aesthetic by introducing a mix of pared-back, minimal furniture with bold art and textures. Combining a blend of soft textures, natural materials and bespoke elements pull together to create a refined feeling of luxury that is still family-friendly. Accent colours throughout provide each space with its own personality, while maintaining an overall language within the home. It was a pleasure to work alongside a variety of skilled trades, that worked together to create custom-designed joinery and furniture, that enabled us to deliver a space that is truly unique to Jersey. A key aspect of the design was to integrate materials from the local area. We were inspired by Jersey stone, which naturally lends itself to a variety of colours and textures. We combined these to create a refined colour palette, that nods to Jersey's heritage yet implemented with a modern approach."
