York Place

You are here

York Place is a large Victorian Villa. I was asked to look at the Lounge, Dining Room & Entrance Hall/Stairs/Landing. Enhancing any original features while adding a modern twist so it worked well as a family home.

The original marble fireplace had been painted over, so my first jobs was to strip it back and re-instate a solid fuel fire. I decorated using fantastic modern wallpapers and commissioned a bespoke plush velvet corner sofa for the room, enhancing the large picture windows with beautiful silk curtains.

Solid American Walnut furniture was used for the custom built cupboards in the alcoves to house all the media equipment, along with a bookcase, a radiator cover and a coffee table. The TV was fitted onto the wall for a sleek look and the finishing touches were light fittings, cushions and a rug.
