Our New Home!
2016 has not been a great year in terms of worldwide dynamics…however on a personal note 2016 has been pretty incredible. My first year set up as CAT DAL INTERIORS, my wonderful wedding in Ibiza, a website face lift and finally the refurbishment of my split level north London flat!
After removing the laminate flooring we lay a smoked grey herringbone wood floor, fitted led recessed spotlights and painted the walls in Farrow & Ball’s Ammonite, setting a calm muted palette for the living room.
Not only was it overwhelmingly orange, the clunky units and enormous extractor fan took over the room, and I hated how the end units blocked out the window, so we ripped it all out! A Belfast sink over a lower unit and a free standing island made for a much better use of space and the brass features and marble tiled splash back create a modern and bright space.
At 5’10 and 6ft, my husband and I are rather tall, so we had limited head height which we fixed by building a dormer out to the eaves, giving us plenty more space and room for an ensuite. Fitted storage made the most of the eaves, and we built a Juliet balcony to flood the room in light and painted the walls in Farrow & Ball’s gorgeous Oval Room Blue.
In the ensuite we fitted Bert & May tiles as the splash back, and the wooden floor tiles gave warmth against the tadelakt walls.
Love to know what you think, and whether you have considered any home renovations?
