As well as our in-house Interior Architecture expertise, we partner with a trusted and long-established network of Interior Design firms, and for this Cotswold restoration and conversion, we worked alongside long-term collaborator Nia Morris Studio.
Nia’s busy practice based in London and the Cotswolds specialises in residential interiors, and much like ourselves, their focus is on timeless design, steering clear of short-term interior fashions to create energetic and uplifting spaces that last.
They are advocates for an eclectic approach – mixing vintage with new, linear interiors and monochrome with splashes of colour – and they support specialist makers and craftsmen, commissioning bespoke pieces like the handmade dressing room by CAD Joinery here.
The large, open plan, light-filled ground floor includes a bespoke kitchen / diner by Kitchen Architecture, with Town and Country flooring, and Crittal glazing from Cotswold Casements, uniting rural architecture with accents of light industrial design.
Elsewhere, elegant, tactile and hardwearing materials have been carefully selected to withstand the wear and tear of an outdoors country lifestyle, including reclaimed timber panelling, a stunning sofa upholstered with fabric from Mulberry, stove by Stuv, Lefroy Brooks taps and showers, Catchpole & Rye sanitaryware, and Bert and May bathroom tiles – set perfectly against a backdrop of vintage and colourful textiles.
When it comes to Interior Design, we operate a flexible approach in how we work, who we work with, and the design aesthetic. There is no (nor should there be a) ‘one size fits all’ scenario, when it comes to making a house a home. The results at North Barn are a testament to the fantastic working relationship, and collective vision we share with Nia Morris and her team, and we look forward to working together for many years to come.
