Indigo House, 2022

When a mother and a daughter in law team took over from the previous owner this B&B was about to get some serious makeover action. To hit a new market and attract a better grading by listing agencies it needed a new en-suite bathroom, a modernised shower room and better appointed public spaces. These main structural changes led the project planning but for everything to seamlessly work together, it all needed a cosmetic redesign as well. We started with the remodelling task and then build the visual design taking colour clues from the name of the house! An old dysfunctional bathroom was replaced with a modern shower room. We connected the plumbing from here with the adjoining bedroom and by hiding the pipe work in a new plinth under the roof eaves a new master bedroom with a freestanding bath was formed. Downstairs the kitchen finishes were replaced and a new colour scheme for the house implemented. The blue tones of the lounge were carried upstairs through the stairwell which we updated with timber mouldings and new carpets. All of the public areas were refurnished with comfortable and timeless pieces that will wear and age well. This is now a popular spot fetching a higher return for the owners and an enjoyable retreat for the guests.
