This Terrace house in Reading initially presented itself with strong cottage style features. In the living room fake beams were added on the ceiling and they were complemented with orange carpet and bricks fireplace.

The clients wanted a bright open space on the ground floor hence the choice of using white flooring and light grey walls.

The monochrome black and white scheme jazzed up with warm bold colours was then used throughout the entire house to give it a sense of continuity.

Home is the ongoing story of a person.
