Creating a dream Surrey home
Alexander James Interior Design specialise in creating dreamy interiors for beautiful houses all over the UK and internationally. For this Surrey client, Alexander James had the pleasure of completely reconfiguring this newly built family home, creating the perfect layout for functional yet luxurious family living. The client wanted them to create a classic, contemporary style home and warm up the spaces, which originally felt very cold and harsh. They wanted their home to be great for entertaining with an opulent, luxurious look with lots of texture.
The Entrance Hall Alexander James designed bespoke contrasting flooring with a darker marble inlay with bronze detailing. This enabled the eye to be drawn to the statement chandelier and bronze balustrade, sweeping over three floors. This bronze inlay then became the design inspiration that ran throughout the house. This magnificent hallway is breath-taking upon entrance, with two statement artwork pieces creating a perfect symmetry above two upholstered benches.
Living Area The leafy suburban surroundings of this property play host to beautiful greenery, perfect for a sanctuary away from the city. The interior design integrates into this environment perfectly, a contemporary yet serene family home bursting with colour, texture, pattern, and personality. In this living area, Alexander James created a vibrant interior full of natural light, a great space to spend time with family.
The Kitchen They always say the kitchen is the heart of the home, and in this case, it really is. In the kitchen area, they adopted a more calming neutral palette of gold and cream, for an elegant, country look. A space to spend time cooking and entertaining with family, the breakfast bar area features luxurious bar stools upholstered in a glamorous metallic fabric. Four stunning pendant lights over the breakfast seating area add a contemporary feel to this living space.
The television room is a less formal living area, perfect for spending lazy Sundays with family. In this relaxed living space, Alexander James used a more contemporary colour palette, with abstract patterns in the soft furnishings together with a more relaxed seating area, with two L shaped sofas to sink into.
The Master Bedroom
In the master bedroom, Alexander James Interiors designed a bespoke padded wall in luxurious fabric for a sumptuous feel, which continued into the bedding and soft furnishings in the bedroom. Either side of the upholstery they fitted bevelled mirrored panels, which on the left side concealed a secret door, which provided access to his dressing room and en-suite.
They selected a rich colour palette of dark greys for a serene, relaxed feel, the perfect sleeping area for their client to enjoy after a long day. They also incorporated a lounge area into this large bedroom, not only making the most of the available space but creating a place to relax and unwind in privacy. A beautiful statement chandelier casts a warm glow over the room, crowning the sleeping area perfectly.
Pool Bar Area
The ideal space for entertaining friends at the weekend, the indoor pool and bar area is the perfect party location. With a comfortable yet stylish lounge seating and tv area, fully functional bar and a large pool to bob around in, there is a lot of fun to be had at this gorgeous Surrey home. Her en-suite The Alexander James interior architecture team re-designed her master en-suite bathroom, linking directly with ‘her dressing room’ and bedroom. With the whole suite being a seamless and open space, they felt it important to make it feel as relaxing and luxurious as possible. The stunning Silver Wave Polished book matched marble slab became the focal point of the bathroom. The bespoke floating vanity unit with accent lighting below was designed to create a feminine and glamorous look, with nine panels of bevelled mirror above. They installed elegant wall lights onto the mirror as both a decorative and practical feature.
Dining rooms are an essential room for entertaining on those special occasions, or just when you fancy hosting a civilised (or not so civilised) mid-week dinner party with friends. Alexander James took a once unexciting space and created a luxurious room with a bespoke six seated dining table on a beautiful Fendi rug, below a large statement chandelier that adds the perfect glamorous touch to this show-stopping dining space.
