PROPERTY / Five-bedroom detached house

LOCATION / Harwell, Oxfordshire

TARGET PURCHASER / Professional Family


BRIEF / To create a contemporary elegant family home whilst reflecting the rural Oxfordshire location

Designers Notes.

Set in an area of outstanding beauty in the heart of Oxfordshire, the spacious  5-bedroom family home had to reflect both the contemporary architecture of the house and the rural countryside setting. The balance was created by combining contemporary furniture with layers of rich fabrics in soft blues, saffrons and ivories enhanced with brass, bronze and washed woods.

The oversized hallway was adorned with a cascading brass pendant in the centre of this impressive open stairwell which leads to the  open plan kitchen/dining room which showcases a washed wood herringbone 10 seat table with beautiful blue velvet dining chairs. The formal sitting room features a combination of contemporary sculptural pieces in azure blue.

The master bedroom is classically elegant with a soft palette of finishes, bespoke over wide headboard and upholstered chaise lounge. The 4 remaining large bedrooms each have their own character, none more so than the young masters bedroom with the white cabin bed, vintage cars and animal characters.
