Phase 2: A Family’s Haven’s Living Space Evolution – St Ives

Introduction: We began collaborating with this delightful family in 2021, aiming to strike the perfect balance between sophisticated adult areas and welcoming spaces for their three young children. Understanding their lively lifestyle, we tailored solutions to ensure every family member could thrive.

Formal Dining: We sourced a stunning Howard dining table from Poliform, protected with a layer to preserve its gleaming Carrara white marble. Complemented by cozy West Elm dining chairs and a custom oak sideboard, we created a cohesive and elegant setting with the already established window dressings and chandelier in the space.

Formal Living: By reconfiguring the seating, we crafted distinct zones within this spacious room. Utilising the bay windows for relaxation spots, we introduced a Coco Republic Ashley Sofa and oversized coffee table, marrying heritage details with contemporary comfort.

Casual TV Room: To accommodate family gatherings, we opted for the generously proportioned King Plaza Composition sofa, complemented by a Coco Ella rug and Totem Road Maebry Entertainment Unit and Kara Round Marble Coffee table. Splashes of marble tied this space to the formal areas, while curated accessories added warmth and character.

Our Reflection: It was such a pleasure collaborating with this family, and our successful partnership extended to transforming the husband’s study, five bathrooms, and a laundry over three phases. Returning three years later, it’s heartwarming to witness the family cherishing their home and creating beautiful memories together.

Working from home

We engaged Hills and West Services after a friend highly recommended them. We are so thrilled we did. Both Aisha and Jana work really well together and bounce their interior ideas off each other. We gave them a brief to update our formal dining room, living room and TV room and they delivered above our expectations. They provided several ideas and combinations and stretched us to think beyond our comfort zone. We are so delighted we did as we could not be happier with their suggestions. We have gone from using our dining and living rooms on the rare occasion to enjoying them every day!  Our tv room is far more inviting and now accommodates the whole family. It was so much fun working with Aisha and Jana. It was very evident they not only have great interior design and flare but also a strong relationship with many high end retailers. I highly recommend Hills and West services and are already excited about starting our next project with them!
