Leung Interiors has an exciting autumn commission to restore the interiors of two apartments in a beautiful mansion house in leafy Didsbury. The magnificant building dates back to the turn of the century, still retaining much of its beauty on the exterior it was converted into 6 well proportioned apartments some years ago.
The present owners feel that the building should be brought back to it’s former glory but also the schemes should be suitable for modern day living. Traditional furniture pieces will be mixed with modern colour pallets enhancing the original characteristics but never detracting from the period.
Use of crystal over-sized chandeliers to showcase the 3 metre high ceilings will be warmed with original burr-walnut Queen Anne furniture of the period. Walls and ceilings will be painted in ivories and neutrals with paint from Farrow and Balls ‘period’ range which has been developed together with the National Trust.
Floors will be a deep and rich American walnut with kitchens in ivory panels complemented with walnut work surfaces and high spec appliances. To bring a more contemporary feel to the smaller apartment we looked to the Amy Butler range of wallpapers, worth a look www.amybutlerdesign.com Some strong bold colours and powder blues and pale yellows enhance the crystal to perfection.
I will post some photos of the restoration as it develops .. I hope you enjoyed this months blog .. bye for now Choi x
