The client presented us with a precise brief although he did ask our advice on certain aspects of this restoration project.

We removed the old floorboards and laid a plywood sub-floor which we covered in custom-made marble tiles. The base of each wall is finished with bespoke facings which complement the flooring.

The drawing room had suffered water damage so we re-plastered the ceiling and painted it. The walls were finished in a paper which reflected the period. We extended the fireplace to create a feature and re-sited the gilt-edged mirror for the best advantage.
