Chameleon Interior Designs were asked to help design the interior on this new build house in the Georgina market town of Reepham, Norfolk. The design consisted of all the interior rooms and spaces, which were three bedrooms, office/study, Master bedroom en-suite, ground floor shower room, utility room and broken-plan ground floor living/dining and kitchen. We worked closely with the developer and the clients on all the internal layouts including full lighting design, kitchen and final finishes.
The client brief was for a boutique style master bedroom and en-suite as this was their main bedroom, plus two additional smart guest bedrooms and family bathroom. Plus a sizeable office, come library on the top floor. The house was designed with lots of light and windows, so we worked with this particularly on the ground floor to give a great entertaining space, another request especially kitchen design and function, but also a cosy living space. The addition of the ground floor shower room and sofa bed in this space was for when elderly relatives came to stay.
We worked with the clients existing pieces of furniture and incorporating these into the scheme. A great deal of the design work, working closely with the client and main contractor (6 months for this stage), prior to work on site, was taken up with achieving the flow and cohesive feel of all the rooms whilst giving them their own identity. This was achieved by being extremely creative with the designs by using some statement pieces, plus other items from our extensive suppliers, plus high street retailers. .
The lighting was co-ordinated throughout using matching wall and light fixtures which meet current building regulations. In addition placement of sockets and a clever use of lighting circuits were installed to add interest and layers of light to the scheme.
The success of the design can be summed up from the clients who say ‘ We love this house, it works on so many levels for us, plus when we want to entertain friends and family, but cosy and practical for us on an everyday basis.’
