Kate’s House Tour – Stylish Family Home

We were commissioned by our lovely client Kate to help with the interior design of her 4 bedroom family home in London. She had so many ideas but was not sure which worked and needed our expert advice. Our Online interior design service was perfect for her as she had a busy schedule. We turned this blank canvas into a stylish family home.

Living Room

The living room exhibits a perfect mix between comfort and style, with the use of natural colours and soft materials through the furniture pieces. A subtle hint of a strong olive-green runs throughout the space to help draw the outside in through the large crittal doors, and helps to add a sophisticated & warming tone. These elements contrast against the statement dark joinery wall to house the TV, fireplace and display shelving, but also work together seamlessly to create a coherent design.

The clever use of gold details through the light fittings and accessories, uplifts the design adding warm undertones. The contrasting gold embellishment against the black creates a luxurious appearance, that flows seamlessly into the clients joining spaces as the gold details continue throughout.

Slated wood panel details have been added to the joinery wall shelving to help create movement and texture. Adding recessed LED strip lighting helps to elevate the depth of the slated panels, ultimately breaking up the solid dark statement wall, and creating an interesting, beautiful design piece.

Open Plan Kitchen and Dining

This design achieves rustic elegance combined with modern style, which work perfectly together. The use of natural materials such as wood has been used within the dining table, instantly adding warmth and natural light to the interior. Marble has been incorporated within the kitchen island worktops, with deep golden veins running throughout to enhance the softening and warming tones within both natural elements. An accent colour of black is used within the kitchen islands cabinetry to create a strong statement against the Ptarmigan white wall cabinets and white marble worktop.

This accent colour is complimented and mimicked through other elements of the design, such as the crittal doors, furniture details and accessories. This helps to create a harmonious and sophisticated design without overpowering and darkening what is a light & bright space.

The gold details from the living room are introduced subtly into the kitchen/dining through the cabinet handles & light fittings, to create harmony and flow between the two spaces.


This space creates a soft and feminine vibe through the use of natural subtle colours and tones. Acting as a double function space (office & guest bedroom), we needed to ensure the design possessed both a luxurious and comfortable feel yet was also functional.

Applying an elegant statement wallpaper against the neutral tones of the sofa helps introduce soft colours and playful pattern without being overpowering, helping to enhance the design rather than overwhelm it.

Client’s Review:-

” I have been working with The House Designer team for 8 months and instructed their services when we moved into a new property which needed a complete makeover. Starting with some smaller rooms (boys’ bedrooms and my office), I was thrilled with the design boards Alysia produced so continued to work with her and the team on the remainder of the house (upstairs and downstairs hallway, stairs, kitchen/diner, snug and lounge. Alysia helped on every aspect including: – Room layout, design, and furnishings – Ironmongery and doors – Flooring -Lighting and small power schedule – Mouldings – Window coverings The end result is staggering. I would recommend them without hesitation. Our guests are so complimentary and comment and on our statement pieces which I would never have found on my own or had the confidence to purchase. Alysia really brought my ideas to life in a way I could not have executed. Samantha was extremely patient, raising purchase orders for me throughout the process and managing returns where necessary. I am so grateful to the team for their amazing work and look forward to working with them again on the remaining rooms. ”
