Queen's Park House, London
Owner; Private - residential
Architects; Poulsom Middlehurst
An Edwardian house is transformed into a light beautiful and child friendly home, combing functionality with a quiet glamorous aesthetic.
Charlotte's lighting for this spacious family home was designed to be relaxed, stylish with an honesty to materials. The owner required an open clear thinking space for a busy family. Materials were carefully considered for all the decorative lighting as the details of flooring, windows and internal doors were all refined back and beautiful craftsmanship was demanded through out.
Limed oak floors, raw linens, open shelving and wood burning fires mix with the current owners antiques.
Bespoke lighting was created for all the decorative fittings - beautiful hand blown crystal glass shades in soft bronze colours and high lighted with polished brass and then deep patinated brass to lustrous black.
The finish on the lighting was a big consideration to match the clients chosen colour scheme. Charlotte patinated chosen brass details to deep blacks to link with the Critteral windows in the hallway, and the same finish was linked to the other hallway lights.
Polished brass, its warm tones harmonising with the Stiffkey blue on the downstairs sitting room walls.
Opaline globes - simplified in elegant fittings gave a nod to the Edwardian inheritance.
