LyonsKelly redesigned the first floor level of this Victorian house. A new opening in a dividing wall allowed one room to become a dressing room and bathroom, while the other would be used as a bedroom. The connecting door ways were placed on axis to benefit from the windows on both sides of the house. Additional storage space was required in the bedroom and to facilitate this a ‘Narnia’ style wardrobe was created. One enters the dressing room and bathroom through these wardrobes, which were clad in hand-painted wallpaper by deGournay.
We also upgraded the existing family bathroom and redecorated the children’s bedrooms. The bathroom has a combined shower and bath clad with yellow tiles, while the boy’s bedroom features hand-made Irish tweed.
