Studio Hooten - Contemporary Country Retreat
This house is a large new build outside the historic city of Winchester and designed for family living with contemporary spaces. It is not what you imagine when conjuring up a traditional country retreat, turning preconceptions about a country escape on their head. The designers at Studio Hooten have carefully balanced larger open plan rooms with smaller snug areas for use during the winter months, combining comfort and colour. Our Empire Tall Pendant lights in copper finish make a strong feature over the dining table and contrast beautifully with the warm red tones of the fabrics. This theme is followed throughout the house with a stunning lighting feature using our Standing Pendants over the velvet ottoman in the reception hall. Photography by martingardner.com
We contrasted the traditional grandeur of the Georgian architecture with modern light wood flooring, a sleek Balthaup kitchen and colourful, quirky soft furnishings. Using our trusted British designer-makers, we created bespoke light fittings and finishes to bring in a sophisticated aesthetic whilst original art was sourced from local galleries to personalise the space and add character to the home.
