THE OLD SCHOOL HOUSE

BICESTER, OXFORDSHIRE

ABOUT THE PROJECT

When Katrina and Stuart bought their characterful property in Oxfordshire, they knew it needed some love. But they both work full time and having already experienced how time consuming decision making was renovating their kitchen, they knew they needed help. 

They weren’t very confident in their own style and feared making costly mistakes all resulting in them not getting their dream house at the end of it.

I helped them understand their style, using my colour psychology and Katrina felt encouraged to make bolder decisions with colour.

I created new layouts which made the most of the space and designed schemes for every room (apart from the kitchen). 

Every part of the house is now used, there is ample storage and the decór is bolder than they ever could have achieved alone. They are now enjoying their home more than they ever thought they would and feel really proud of it. 

DETAILS

A muted colour palette for the furnishings complement the oak shelving, floor and stone fireplace whilst balancing the strong teal blue walls and sofa.

TEXTURES

We added lots of textures on the bed, topped with a grand headboard. These contrast with the hard surfaces of the wooden floor and window blind which keep the character of the cottage.

LET THERE BE LIGHT!

Opening up the two rooms was not only practical but offered up more views through the house and natural light.

"Kate really helped us with our renovation and with her flair for design and colour, our house has been transformed into a home. She understood our style and encouraged us to make bolder decisions with colour. She also supported the design process through lockdown, helping coordinate furniture orders with an ever changing build schedule."
