Luxury Lodge Bar

This brand-new home was built in the style of a Lodge. The owners loved the natural form of the woods and have celebrated it in different ways within each room. We were invited to help our clients with their Interior Design at an early enough stage that we could help them maximise the potential within the plans.

The colours and style of the room were inspired by a piece of treasured art that the homeowners cherished and wanted to incorporate within this room. This suggested the rich warm tones that would look even richer by firelight as this was to be a room that would be used for lots of evening entertaining.

The stunning view is framed by opulent velvet curtains fitted to a rich bronze pole with a stag design to emulate the hunting lodge theme. The antler chandelier forms the centrepiece of the room, it creates a wonderful light for the room in the evening and has a sculptural effect by day.

We covered a favourite chair in a luxurious wool tartan and mixed this in with their leather furniture place on a subtle but stylish William Morris rug for a comfortable eclectic mix.

The Bar itself was fundamental to the success of the design which Darren and I created using beautiful Black Walnut, which has a gorgeous grain and deep rich colour. To maximise the bar and to give the feeling of a wider space we wrapped the bar top around the supporting wall. This allowed an extra seat to be placed at the bar and elongated the entire space giving it more elegant proportions.

We carried the black Walnut through to the mantlepiece and the shelving behind the bar and have plans for a wine storage console which I am currently designing.

The initial architect’s plans ear marked the room as a conventional room with four walls but the client really wanted to add a bar as they entertain often. So, having looked at the plans we adapted them to allow us to incorporate the Bar, a real fire and still have ample space to entertain.

Next door was to be an ensuite bathroom for a downstairs guest bedroom, so we restructured the space to go through that wall and create space to build in the Bar itself, with display shelving, sink and plenty of storage. This meant that we didn’t eat in to the floor space of the room itself leaving the ability to place furniture around the new log burner that we installed instead of the planned window. I felt that this window was surplus to requirement as there was already a huge bifold door overlooking The River Thames, which allows for optimum entertainment space.

We were also still able to give the guest bedroom a walk-in wardrobe and not lose out on the private bathroom as it had another bathroom on the other side. So, every room had what it needed.
