This beautiful three storey Georgian house has charm rather than grandeur and is comfortable and contemporary in a relaxed way.
On the upper floor is a guest bedroom, a bathroom and a third bedroom which the client uses as an office, yoga studio and craft room combined.

The ground floor of this Georgian cottage outside Bath is where the kitchen/dining room, ‘snug’ living room, utility and cloakroom are situated. After building work was completed, we redesigned all the rooms for this client.

Here are some ways to help choose a colour scheme.
