Project: Hampshire house

Sally Conran embraced the challenge of furnishing this large, modern family home

Designed by award winning Niall Mclaughlin Architects, Sally was asked to furnish this large, modern family home situated outside Alresford in Hampshire.

Set within stunning grounds and with views of the lake and boathouse, the house is composed of a natural palette of untreated oak, Portland stone and textured flint. Floor to ceiling windows frame the views of the surrounding countryside and flood the house with natural light. Sally was asked to design a relaxed family home, mixing antiques and original lighting with contemporary furnishings and fabrics to create a stylish, comfortable home for modern country life.

For the light filled, double height entrance Sally chose a striking, heavily foxed mirror hung over a contemporary console table in crisp black marble. Opposite a triptych of decorative panels compliment a an understated sofa upholstered in plain linen.

For the family kitchen dining and living areas Sally chose leather upholstery in shades of bitter chocolate, ink and lead and mixed these with a natural jute rug, copper accents and tonal velvets to create a warm and welcoming palette that compliments the oak interiors.

The Master Bedroom features velvets and linens in deep midnight tones creating a sophisticated palette alongside the honey coloured oak floors, ceilings and dressing area. Vintage rosewood night tables were chosen for their rich tones and modern shape.

Sally created contrasting interiors for the guest bedrooms, while the children’s bedrooms were designed to reflect both their personalities and their interests.
