Initially contacted to work on their son's bedroom, we have gone on to work our way stage by stage, in this family home, with an extension commencing later in the year. Space and storage were key initial hurdles to overcome; this active family, with incredibly vibrant and talented children and busy parents are always on the go. We helped streamline and organise, but also provide beautiful spaces for this tight knit family to unwind and relax together in.
A cedar clad garden studio is a multi-functional space for our hard working client. Often toiling late into the night, everything at hand to optimise work and provide some rewarding relaxation.
"Dad's Man Cave" was meant to be exactly that... a dad only zone... but his children beg to differ, regularly taking charge, ensuring he knows his place!
Everything is London-themed and tailor made... from London bus wallpaper and blinds, storage cupboards, sofa bed and cushions, cabinetry displaying tickets and treasures to a multi-functional walnut desk to work at.
There's even a kitchenette located behind the desk with microwave, dishwasher and all important coffee machine... making late night work easy to cater for.
A playroom was created in the attic. The colourful space was divided into two clear zones: desk and homework area and TV chill-out zone.
The children complete school work at the desk and in the evenings, the family hang out together watching films and playing board games.
A run of storage along the eaves keeps the space clutter free.
"They tailor make their designs according to your budget but never cut corners and are always flexible. We pay for quality and that's never, ever missing in their work. We have been fortunate to work with Colliss and Quinton four times already and we are blessed to still have future projects planned with them in the pipeline."
