We transformed this room from a bland cluttered space to a personal study based around the personality of this gentleman, introducing a unique wany edge desk integrated with shelving, and a relaxation area with snug sofa and entertainment wall, enhanced with dark sumptuous tones.


From what was once a boys’ bedroom, the brief was to make a creative space for painting, drawing and craft work, as well as a relaxation space.  Gordon designed bespoke oak furniture alongside the remodelling of an existing dining table to make the perfect crafts table with inset cutting mat. A reclaimed footstool and wing back armchair were re-upholstered to give continuity within the multi-use space and colour bars, with complementing lighting and accessories.


Formed as part of an extension amid ongoing works to a busy family home, this concept led to the combination of contemporary kitchen features with a lively patterned tiled floor and homely accessories, giving the space a modern feel with sympathetic lighting and starring roles from eclectic furnishings the family had collected over the years. With classy deep teal, light greens and greys on the walls complementing vibrant splashback tiles, solid elm floating shelves decorated with plants and containers add an Instagrammable touch. Floors of deep tinted timber planks and a cream wood burner link the adjoining open plan living area, resulting in the space now flourishing with an abundance of classy warmth and homeliness.


With a brief for a traditional Arts and Crafts snug to complement the historic values of this family home on the edge of the Ashdown Forest, this is the detailing and drawing stage of the interior architect process, incorporating William Morris prints for wallpaper and fabrics.


Utilising our close association with a local joinery in Sussex, Gordon designs beautiful kitchens as well as other joinery for studies and workspaces, shelving, bedroom wardrobes, general cabinetry and unique home features, all traditionally handmade in Sussex and fitted by the same experienced team. Please ask us for details.


The client wanted a complete change so we stripped her bedroom suite back to totally blank canvas, and introduced soft pastel blue tones with a gentle French theme. Bespoke window dressings handmade locally from quality selected fabrics, a re-upholstered chaise longue complimented by the chandelier, with French ‘rustic antique’ furniture set the scene. Gordon also designed the walk-in closet with wall to wall bespoke fitted wardrobe & storage units in matching Mews Blue with antique bronze fittings. To finish off an artist was commissioned to hand paint a sympathetic mural directly over the bed head. With the layout completely changed and looking elegant and luxurious, the room now feels like a breath of fresh air.

amazing to work with

Gordon transformed a tired 2 person home office into a modern and well-appointed Man Cave.  The inexpensive furniture fitted perfectly and was combined with a couple of more luxurious pieces.  I now enjoy the work zone and the relaxation zone, particularly the latter.

wonderful and classic eye for design

I truly can’t recommend Gordon enough. He provided a professional, creative, artistic and immensely practical solution transforming a complex room in my home into a stylish and user-friendly space.  I was amazed at how attentive he was to my remit, coming up with a design that quite frankly blew my mind.  His use of colour, layout and top quality units provide me with a room where I now love to spend many happy hours.  I wax lyrical to all my friends about it and look forward to a time when I can proudly share the creative space with others.
