LLI Design have recently completed The ButtertonProject, which consisted of a total make-over of the ground floor of a newly builthouse in Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom. The clients, a youngprofessionalcouple with two children, wanted a modernlook that wasn’t cold and clinical. They wanted theirhome to be somewhere they could relax and entertain, but at the same time function as a practical family home. It was calculated that up to 40% of the space was very seldom used, which was an important factor in planning the project. LLI Design proposed that moreopenplanliving would suit the family’s lifestyle.
In the family area, furnishings were kept simple but with strong styling lines, a bright red retrostyledsofa with chaise-end and a rug together with a statement Flos spun floor lamp and bright artworks warm up the area. A limited palette of greys, creams, blacks and reds addeddrama to the space. The larger reception room was repurposed as a TV / lounge due to it’s lack of natural light. It was important to make this room warm, welcoming and cosy especially as it had been so under used in the past. The palette was kept to oranges, taupes and greys, together with a walnut floor.
A new lightingscheme was designed and specified including new fittings and garden lighting. An Intelligent Lighting system was installed in order to create moods, ambiance and timed events internally and externally, controlled fromwall mounted keypads and also by iPads / iPhones.
