Rodrick Design undertook the project of transforming this stunning country property. Located in the heart of Co Down drumlins it dates back to the 1800’s and originally a school house; now a home, it has been sympathetically restored and extended to achieve maximum potential.
Designed exclusively by interior designer Richard Rodgers, each room has been carefully created with colour and textures to complement the integrity of the building. Richard said: “The eclectic mix of old meets new was key to the design of this project, many antiques and accessories were sourced locally and abroad. Much of the colour inspiration was taken from the original building and surrounding countryside.”
The layout of the house makes the most of the building’s space, with bedrooms, bathrooms and office located on the ground floor and the rest of the main living space located on the floor above. Discussing the design utilised throughout the property, Richard said: “The master bedroom is a warm and inviting space; muted bronze tones with soft metallic patterns fulfil the brief of ‘country glamour’.
“A deep navy colour in the bathroom highlights the heritage range of sanitary ware from Burlington whilst the Italian marble checkerboard tiles add depth to the look. “The open plan living room has a vaulted ceiling with feature wooden beams whilst a large crystal chandelier provides the perfect focal point. The original stone walls are complemented with a limed oak herringbone floor placed throughout the top floor allowing each room to flow with one another.
The large, oatmeal colour modular sofa ‘Baker’ from Alexander & James was selected to complement the original Mourne granite windowsills. Completing the look, the ‘Loffee’ leather armchairs from Halo add depth to the palette with punches of acid yellow and teal velvet cushions, ethically sourced cowhides from Switzerland add warmth and texture to the scheme.
“The traditional style handmade kitchen is the heart of the home; the granite worktops’ light colour combination complements the original stone walls with a hint of sparkle from the diamond cut glass handles. “Handmade bespoke roman blinds with subtle colour and textiles complete each of the rooms. The modern dining area located in the sunroom is flooded with daylight and sunsets, white leather and glass was a key look for this room with a soft sage green colour on the walls to reflect the stunning gardens located in the grounds. The bespoke stone fireplace was sourced from a local company and uses the same stone that was used to construct the opera house in Budapest.
“Overall the use of colour and textiles used is key to the design of this home. This house has a huge personality which is identified in each room you enter, this is something I am proud to have accomplished.”
Our design process provides furniture & lighting layouts, product document of proposed furniture, cabinetry, upholstery, lighting, art & accessories as well as design board of sample finishes of flooring, wall coverings, window treatments, soft furnishings, upholstery, bespoke cabinetry & specialist finishes to complete each space.
