Elaine and Marks Wardrobe
Mark and Elaine approached us to help design a built in wardrobe for the Master bedroom in their fabulous Bearsden home. They both visualised a wardrobe which would sit well in a period room and of course provide ample storage.
Drawing inspiration from the period room doors which led to the room and en-suite, we designed and built a built in wardrobe which featured partition walls at either end of it. Using the walls at either end allowed us to continue the high period skirting around the base and to frame the wardrobe cabinets with a period architrave – all of this added to the built in and original look of the wardrobe. To complete this we designed and built wardrobe doors which matched the rail sizes of the room doors.
The internals of the wardrobe were fitted out in lacquered Oak which provided a very nice contrast with the white doors. The partition walls at either end were plastered and painted with Farrow and Ball emulsion to match the colour of the room walls and to help it blend in. Finally we capped the wardrobe with a moulded timber cornice which was painted white and added that “je ne sais quoi”.
Thanks very much to Elaine and Mark for appointing us to this project – it was thoroughly enjoyable and a delight to see the finished article.
