A large and grand Georgian rectory owned by frequent travellers, redecorated to create a beautiful, sophisticated family home with an international feel.

Creative narrative

The redecoration of this Georgian rectory was a wonderful opportunity to work with old friends and clients once again. Having already decorated their London pied à terre, my clients and I had a strong idea of how we would approach the design of their country home.

Working with a client who has such a good eye and wasn’t afraid of bold colours and statement pieces was a dream. Together we created spaces that are perfect for relaxation but also areas for entertaining, working from home and coming together as a family.

Being frequent travellers to tropical and warmer climes we used many greens and blues to bring the outside in, with potted palms and greenery throughout and tropical palm leaf wallpaper by Osborne and Little in the entrance hall.

In such a large house it was important that the furniture was bespoke in order for it to work with the wonderful Georgian proportions. We designed large sofas and sumptuous armchairs for the drawing room using linens and cottons. The sofas and armchairs were all made at the Atelier’s upholsterer in London.

Atelier Elizabeth Rose sourced antiques and accessories including a pair of Rattan armchairs, large glass vases and decorative urns. We re-upholstered the chairs in a stunning leaf fabric. To compliment the armchairs we had a bespoke lacquered tray table made in vivid green with raffia top.

As my clients are frequent travellers, designs were often sent by email and many conversations took place via WhatsApp.

Atelier Elizabeth Rose worked closely with the clients to create a comfortable home on a grand scale.
