Rejuvenating a Luxembourgian Chateau: The Beauty of Online Interior Design
Updated: Jan 22, 2019
Kate had just moved to Luxembourg and bought a fabulous Chateau with her partner. The living space was vast and open plan and Kate had no idea where to start. Tackling such a large project alone can be extremely daunting, but our online design service makes the process a stress free and enjoyable experience.
We were able to complete this project from the UK, with Kate giving feedback all the way from Luxembourg. Communicating with clients through our online collaboration board, allows us to design properties all over the world, enabling the client to leave feedback and contribute ideas at their own convenience. Find out more about the process below.
After our initial Skype consultation, discussing Kate's brief and budget, we decided that the room needed to be divided into functional areas to create a practical but stylish space. Kate wanted the area to be a social space, where she could entertain. She also wanted to incorporate a built in bar area for her lavish cocktail parties. We divided the room into 4 areas: living, dining, entrance and bar. This allowed the space to have a natural flow, whilst simultaneously ensuring that every area of the room was utilised.
The concept for the room was to create a calming and minimal space, with subdued tones and greenery to add to the serenity of the space. Kate also wanted to add industrial elements to the space, with clean lines and natural materials. To keep the space light and bright, we added subtle colour through accessories. The existing sofa, dining table and sideboards were to be kept, but Kate needed suggestions for new small furniture, lighting and accessories, as well as a design for the new bar area.
DESIGN - Layout
We added some contemporary lighting from Ligne Roset, as well as rugs from West Elm and Swoon Editions. Sourcing affordable accessories cut costs on the client's budget, thus allowing for a more elaborate bar area.
DESIGN - Living Area
In the living area, we kept the client's existing sofa, but replaced her armchair with two minimal chairs, creating a free-flowing feel to the space and allowing the user to see through to the patio garden from every area.
DESIGN - Dining Area/Entrance Way
Kate had the dining table custom-made by a local company in Luxembourg. The larger rug is from West Elm and the runner is from Swoon Editions. The wall lights above the sideboard are from Graham & Green. An alternative to ugly picture lights, these brass beauties will allow Kate to illuminate her new artwork.
DESIGN - Bar Area
For the bar area, we decided to go for a wooden island (in keeping with the natural textures), in combination with a black marble worktop to add texture and impact. The bar stool adds to the minimal, industrial look the client wanted.
