Renovate and refurnish the neutral, bland reception rooms, halls, guest bathrooms and bathrooms of a 4-storey Georgian townhouse.
Introduce rich colours, patterns, fabrics and lighting to create a visual feast upon entering the main spaces and the guest sleeping quarters.
We reconfigured the bedrooms and bathrooms, rewired lighting, and added luxe new wood flooring. Bespoke joinery with fluted detailing ran across the project for continuity. Textured and ornate wallpapers with botanical and Japanese themes brought the drama our client desired.
Location: Highbury, North London
Client: Family of 4
Property: Private Residence
Our brief was taken fully into account and our expectations surpassed with a design that's both sympathetic to the period of the house and also very contemporary. I was very impressed with the breadth of the company's knowledge and the range of options that were presented in the planning stages, although in such a way that I was never overwhelmed with choice, and I had total confidence from the start that the work was in very capable hands. Communication was excellent throughout the process of the works too, and even though they were not officially managing the project, they went well above and beyond in terms of assisting with the process. I will certainly be employing Nine Lives for any future renovations and would not hesitate to recommend them
