Interior Design in a Double-Height Space
There can be fewer more difficult spaces to design than a double-height living space converted from part of a grand ballroom. The double-height windows demanded sensitive window treatments and the mezzanine had to be integrated with the lower space.
An integrated home cinema system which was wired in prior to the the installation of the superb new American black walnut floor with a maple border inlay. The room was given a paint-effect faux chimney breast, slightly wider than the proposed plasma screen and extending from floor to ceiling to emphasize and compliment the elegant sheer linen curtains shot with copper threads.
The dining area is geared towards sophisticated entertaining. The ceiling pendant hints at a traditional chandelier but exudes its ethereal light without imposing any weight.
Existing stairs and mezzanine were stripped of their ordinary banisters, and a bespoke replacement in metal with glass balls was designed by Adrienne Chinn and manufactured by a specialist metalworker. Also bespoke is the under-stair storage unit in American black walnut that houses the home entertainment system.
