Alexander James Interiors create a Dream Hertfordshire Home
Alexander James Interiors designed this beautiful lakeside home, tucked away on a private estate in a rural corner of Hertfordshire. The owner required their home to be fully refurbished and modernised, to achieve the perfect family home that is luxurious, yet functional in style.
The marble flooring continued throughout the first floor creates a palatial feel throughout the key guest and entertaining areas, something that was important to the client who enjoys entertaining. In the hallway, we designed a bespoke feature mirrored wall in the hallway using a decorative painted frame, antique mirror panels with bevelled edges and faux leather panels behind the wall lights. The mirrored wall reflects the warm glow of the bespoke pendant chandelier, with its fabulous 5 bronze and glass elements which fall beautifully through all three floors of the house.
On entrance to the dining room, Alexander James used symmetrical statement artwork pieces above two bespoke console tables. This dining room was originally a conservatory at the rear of the home, which was have transformed to create a unique, luxurious living space. They used a large square bespoke dining table in satin sycamore semi-gloss finish, accompanied by 12 dining chairs with feature rear fabric. Above the table hangs a large statement pendant light in taupe silk finish to complete the grand look of the space, with complementary table lamps around the room. Alexander James Interiors styled the dining table using contemporary metallic tableware and accessories to create a stylish entertaining area.
In the living area of the home, they designed a circular coffered ceiling central to the room, enabling the creation of an inviting oval seating layout, perfect for entertaining friends and family. They chose bespoke seating in luxurious fabrics, accompanied by complimentary soft furnishings and styling accessories that create a sumptuous, cosy feel in this principle area of the home. The rich colour palette of greys and blues creates a timeless feel that is both classic and contemporary in design. Two bespoke drinks cabinets sit symmetrically either side of the fireplace, lit internally using LED lighting.
The kitchen area design provides the perfect space to spend time during the day and the evening, with a comfortable dining area overlooking the television and lots of space for cooking and entertaining. A rich colour palette of rich wood tones with metallic accents creates a luxurious living area, lit by the warm tones of the pendant lighting, which is reflected beautifully around the room by bespoke mirrored cabinetry.
In the master bedroom suite, Alexander James Interiors created a central lobby area connecting the master bedroom, dressing room and en-suite bathroom, creating maximum convenience. In the lobby area, they created a bespoke island unit with curved doors and set of drawers on both sides. They also incorporated painted wooden frames to doors with faux leather panels and an antique mirror top with painted leaping edge details. A statement chandelier hangs elegantly above the island.
The co-ordinating faux leather wardrobe joinery provides ample storage along with a built in dressing table, making it the perfect place to get ready before an evening out.
Through to the bedroom, a bespoke upholstered headboard with elegant wall lighting creates a luxurious sleeping area with a sumptuous, lavish feel. Alexander James Interiors also designed a contemporary en-suite bathroom, complete with a stylish standalone bath and shower.
Alexander James Interiors created a very special children’s bedroom for a young girl. Although currently only a toddler, they created a room that she is able to use for many years, using a sophisticated palette that would last until teen age. They designed a ‘princess’ style headboard and bed frame with padded panelling for a touch of luxury, below a trio of feather style lighting pieces to create a magical enchanting feel.
