Barnes Interior Design

Our clients had bought a property in need of total renovation. We were asked to help them in the process, from planning the space, through the development of the design concepts to ensuring the quality of the finishing details.

Master En-Suite Bathroom

The property has 3.5 bathrooms. Each had specific requirements. The brief was to create a sense of opulence for the master en-suite.


A spacious double shower and his and her vanity basins were central to the layout. We incorporated plenty of storage in the vanity and additional recessed cabinetry behind the mirrors.

Light On

Our client loved the natural beauty of classic white grey-veined marble. We sourced a stunning range from natural stone suppliers Artisans of Devises

The Aliseo range comes in a larger tile perfect for the flooring with complementary shaped marble skirting. We used scallop tiles on the splash-back and recessed shelving.

The deep blue colour and brass details flow into the master bedroom. Decorative panelling and lighting were added to the bed head wall.

Family Bathroom

The family bathroom is designed to accommodate the needs of a growing family, whilst retaining a spa-like quality.

The same interior design principles of combining an individual design concept with careful space planning and rigorous attention to detail were applied.

Lighting was an important consideration throughout the project. All the bathroom lighting is dimmable and on separate circuits to provide total flexibility for high level functional lighting or lower level atmospheric lighting depending on the requirements of the moment.

Top Floor Guest Bathroom

Loft bathrooms are often a challenge with space constraints and variable ceiling heights. A number of layouts were drawn up in the process of deciding on the best solution.

The terrazzo flooring, rich herringbone wall design and brass detailing ensures that this guest bathroom has the same out-standing qualities as the other rooms, despite the more limited space available.

Again, we were able to build in plenty of hidden storage. The wall-hung open basin adds to the feeling of spaciousness.

The varied textural quality of the herringbone tiles with dramatic white grouting adds life to the design.

The downstairs cloakroom was deliberately designed to feel somewhat less urban, more country in keeping with the Barnes location. This was achieved by adding more traditional panelling in natural green colourways.

The textured quality of the geometric wallpaper retains a soft element of modernity that works perfectly with the pannelling.

Living Room Joinery

Our client loved the idea of a real fire, but in reality the living area is quite narrow. We designed joinery to combine a modern fire with media unit, storage and shelving to make the most of the space available. The deep, dramatic colourway is painted in-keeping with the hallway seen through the internal crittall glazing.

Barnes Interior Design Project Client Review

“We worked with Gill and couldn’t be happier with the results. We were in a position where we had to design and build at the same time and Gill showed enormous patience with us during a very stressful period for us. She was able to find out what we liked (which we didn’t know at the start of the process!) and turned our house into a dream home. We often get complimented on the design by guests and it’s a testament to how Gill worked with colour, light and space. Thanks guys, we will see you for our next project!” Asanka & Laura
