Purchased in the summer of 2016, the owner of this Ranelagh property was keen to refurbish but was also considering whether she should extend and reconfigure it. Having lived in the property for a while she had a strong idea of how the property could work for her on a day to day basis and turned to Crean Salley Architects and Ruth Noble Interiors to come up with a design that would be much more practical and aesthetically pleasing. The entire property was re-insulated, new sash windows were installed and all the lighting, electrics and bathrooms were upgraded. ‘There was no doubt from the start that the kitchen needed to be more spacious and functional, it needed to be reconfigured, redesigned and needed extra storage,’ explains interior designer Ruth Noble.
A plan was drafted to ensure each room had a purpose. The front living room was allocated for entertaining and relaxing. The central room, which traditionally would have been the dining room, was designed to be utilized as a study, with bespoke designed shelving and cabinetry. A new lead and colored glass window were designed in this space to sit above the double doors. ‘Being Victorian we wanted to respect the integrity of the property, restoring original features and incorporating unusual fittings and fixtures that were more contemporary and would set the home apart from similar properties,’ explains Ruth.
