Victorian Family Home

Victorian Family Home

 

On the ground floor, attention was paid to open up the spaces to allow for more light to flood in the multi-functional rooms. An extension was added to allow for a larger family room as well as a new office. The extension was built with one wall made of glass bi-fold doors to allow a maximum of light in to the room as well as extending the living space to the outdoor area. 

On the first floor, all bedrooms were re-assigned, old carpet replaced by the original wooden floors and an extra bathroom added. The master bedroom on the top floor, also saw its carpeted floor removed to return to the wooden floors and wallpaper was added throughout the house and stairs. 

In the basement the large open space was divided in two, to create an additional guest bedroom and a utility / storage room.

Battersea Family Apartment

Battersea Family Apartment

The clients are an international well-travelled family who wanted a home in England, where they spend a big part of the year. This apartment had to suit a family of five who like to entertain.

The large open plan living – kitchen space, was divided in clear sectors to accommodate different functions. A living space, with deep comfortable sofas, the newest AV technology for entertainment and a beautiful view out on the park.

The dining table was revived and will extend to sit 10 people comfortably whilst the bespoke wall units surrounding the side unit offer much needed storage space.

The bedrooms were designed to meet the requirements of the two brothers sharing a room, the student who has recently started her design courses in London and the owners wanted a master bedroom in which can retreat and relax in peace and quiet.

Mediterranean Summer House

Mediterranean Summer House


For this Mediterranean summer retreat, my focus was on putting together an interior design scheme both in terms of function and aesthetics, which reflects its location.  I capitalised on the craftsmanship of the surrounding areas, emphasising the magnificent views surrounding the house, and ensuring spatial functionality to accommodate the number of people occupying this project.

In this summer home, we made sure to make the most of the gorgeous weather with an outdoor dining room, sunken bar, comfortable furniture and an indoor kitchen built in proximity to the outdoor area for ease of operations. The house is divided into six bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and ample communal space so there is enough outdoor space to be social or just sit back quietly with a book.

Dahabeya Nubia

Hedayat with her team at Eklego worked on the interior layout, finishing and furnishing of this award winning floating home on the Nile.  Consisting of six en-suite rooms, a reception/dining room and two outdoor decks, the boat was finished in white washed floors throughout. Each bedroom was meticulously furnished with the approach of mixing old with new.  Antique wooden night tables were placed alongside modern upholstered plush beds, while re-purposed villagers baskets for laundry collection were placed alongside white washed oak closets.  The walls of the main corridor of the bedrooms’ floor is adorned with cherished photos of the owners’ families dating from the first half of the twentieth century. The reception upstairs and the dining area were fully customised.  An overall whitewashed effect is interspersed with colourful antiques, prints and a dark Thonet marble topped side table. The inside area flows into he outside deck with the whitewashed feel enveloping the entire boat which was designed for leisurely relaxing floating on the Nile.
