The Old Rectory

The interior design of a period property –  A beautiful eclectic re-design.


The brief

To create an eclectic collection of spaces but with a modern and exiting twist that enhances the beautiful existing period features. Our client works within the fashion industry but previously has a background within the music industry. This is a busy family home and we wanted to show their fun and creative personalities without losing the family vibe and the practicalities of day-to-day living. 


We made use of mood boards and floor plans to show our client our ideas and inspiration which helped to agree the scheme. Remedial work was identified and carried out in each space, which included the reinstatement of the panelling in both the dining and games rooms. The hallway (originally painted in a dark red) was pared back to a monochromatic scheme, a marble-topped console table was commissioned to sit on top of the radiator, and cast iron metal radiators were chosen to replace the modern standard radiators. Finally, classic pieces of furniture were selected together with the addition of interesting and unusual pieces, helped create stunning and interesting schemes / rooms.




“I have worked with Alex on our home for the past couple of years. She has been able to capture our style, brought our ideas to life and delivered amazing results. Alex is great fun to work with and has made things so easy for us throughout the whole process. She has created unique, beautiful spaces for us which we will enjoy for a long time to come! We are looking forward to working with her again in the near future!”
