When we were tasked with creating incredible interior designs for the stunning Oak Farmhouse in the charming Cheshire village of Ollerton, straight away our team wanted to come up with something extra special for this exquisite property, set in beautifully manicured grounds and a paddock. We wanted to dazzle the occupants and give their guests an interior design experience like no other.
Our first consideration was the age of Oak Farmhouse, as it was built way back in the late 17th century and is in fact a listed building. We also paid a lot of attention to the materials used in its construction, notably a good deal of timber framing. And so in coming up with our designs for the interior, we wanted to respect and pay homage to this centuries-old structure.
In effect, what we really wanted to do was combine a classical exterior with luxury home accessories that would give this stand-out property a whole new lease of life. We let our interior inspiration run riot, and here's what we came up with.
We created far more space inside and starting with the kitchen made it bright and airy, a place of relaxation and enjoyment that's filled with soft lighting and all the latest in kitchen appliances and gadgetry. The open-plan style of this ultra-modern kitchen means it's such a nice, easy and casual place to be, whether cooking up a storm or entertaining guests with pre-dinner drinks.
Just off the kitchen is a sublime dining room that just spells out "class". Here we added many luxurious touches, from chandelier-style lighting to indulgent sheepskin rugs, which will mark the owners out as people of true style and give any dinner, whether a family or party affair, real zing.
Oak Farmhouse also features a gorgeous drawing room and a remarkable snug where various ethnic objets d'art take centre stage. It's the perfect place to retire to for after-dinner wind-down and drinks. All told, we used our expert design knowledge and items in the Not A Box website to truly bring this amazing property to life again.
