Last week saw the roof wetting soirée of one of the first projects I embarked on as the independent entity of Catherine White Interiors. From concept sketches three years ago, we are now almost finished! Just a few finishing touches to go in along with the furniture and then we are done.
The house is spread out over four entire floors of the prominent property overlooking Barnes Pond in South West London. Two reception rooms (including an open plan kitchen and bar) a generous master suite with a steam room, along with a cinema room, maid's quarters, and two guest suites, and a study.
There is a clear circulation path through the property, with the stairs and lift in the same area allowing easy navigation of the large property.
The strongest design elements are the feature stair which is made of slate and steel and the void which exemplifies the minimalist ethos of the project, with it's fuss-free steel, glass and lighting elements. The bar is made of Slate and Zinc and was a big hit with the guests, it's curvilinear shape contrasting with the rest of the property.
We kept the materials palate very minimal, only using steel, slate, glass, plaster and gorgeous large format timber in the main spaces.
A massive team effort, with a fantastic result!
