Our Work – A Historical Home in Blackheath

A HERITAGE LISTED BLACKHEATH HOME

PART 2

This very special Interior Design project in Blackheath was designed and executed by Thornton & Blake Director of Design & Decoration, Anne Hogarth. It was so special, we decided to give this project a two page feature in ‘our projects’ pages.

Today, we take great pleasure in sharing with you the billiard room and formal dining room of this Victorian Historic home. You can enjoy part one of this special property here.

Commencing in the billiard room, interior timber wall panels were installed to give depth and texture to the walls, reflective of the Victorian period in which it was built. The walls and window frames were bathed in the warmth of Dulux heritage colour, Egyptian Red.

The client was keen to incorporate an inherited antique family sofa in the living space, unique in style, which required restoration and recovering. In line with the clients love for layering a colour throughout the space, fabrics in assorted prints and textures reminiscent of the Scottish Heritage of the house in monochromatic tones were used.

Beautiful, heavy custom made drapes and blinds warm the windows of this cosy space. With quality finishes high on the agenda, no detail was left unturned, the drapes and blinds were finished with a trim which complimented the textiles of the lounge and handcrafted custom covered feather cushions.


A textured silk was chosen for the ceiling lights above the lounge area and pool table which illuminates when the lights are turned on.

Moving into the formal dining space, a dining table to compliment the clients’ family  dining chairs was required. Anne looked abroad to Italy to find craftspeople able to create the extendable, marquetry table imported by Savi Maurizio.

Arm chairs for tight spaces can be very hard to source. In this case Anne went to Sofas International to find a style which is no only complimentary to the traditional style of the space, but also compact enough to be styled either side of the fireplace. The armchairs were covered in GP&J ‘Hydrangea Bird’ print, complimenting the sun drenched dining space and reflects the clients love for flora and fauna inspired prints.
