The owners of this house had been living with inexpensive and simple furniture whilst the children grew up. When they were all leaving home the couple decided to do a total refurbishment to the house and get the furniture they always wanted to have. We worked closely with the clients and helped to create their dream home. We supplied all the furniture, lamps and soft furnishing.
Quinta do Lago, Portugal
This house was bought by my client as a holiday home. He pretty much gave me free hands but had a lot of paintings that he wanted me to incorporate in the house.
South London Victorian House
This house had very little character left when purchased by the clients. The only original features kept were the cornice and the fireplace in the front room. So we set about to give the house some personality. The floorboards on the ground floor, for example, came from a Canadian factory and were over 100 years old. They were finished in a grey oil by the suppliers here in the UK. The style of the house is rustic with a mixture of styles showing the client’s eclectic style with some items collected on their travels. They liked mixing antiques with modern and wanted a practical house with lots of storage.
This client did a total refurbishment and asked BD to pretty much do everything. We did the lighting throughout, chose all the finishes, designed all the bathrooms and chose and supplied all the furniture and accessories. Unfortunately the client has not totally finished the furnishing yet so there are only pictures of the bathrooms at this stage. We were given free hands to design everything but it is all based on the clients taste. The master bathroom is in dark colours (which the client was fond of), the same for the guest WC, the 8-year old daughter had the T&G bathroom and the 18-year old daughter had no window in her bathroom so we created special lighting to give this room more of a depth.
This is a flat done for a developer. After having done all the lighting, finishes and design of bathrooms I was given a very tight budget to also furnish the flat, which was a fun challenge.
Hampstead Arts and Crafts House
Five years earlier we helped this client with new furniture and soft furnishing for their previous house. Now we had to make it all fit in to a smaller house and add new window treatments, design new fitted joinery and new lamps everywhere. Bathrooms were also designed by Beauchamp Designs.
A newly built Chalet in Verbier for English clients. I worked closely with the clients and the local architects. The clients and I together chose the materials used everywhere internally (bathrooms, kitchen, walls, floors etc.). The brief was to use some (not many) existing furniture and paintings and that the Chalet should be homely and not look or feel like a show-house. The client also wanted colour and no grey, like so many Chalets currently have. I think we managed to make this a true reflexion of the clients.
