The Brief

This young family with two children had an extension to the rear of the house. An essential was then to create a large sociable space, and they were keen to create a space that was cool, miss-matched and eclectic.

A challenge was the paint to order island, which obviously struggled against time constraints, but this large statement island was also an investment piece as it created the desired large sociable feature and also brought the eclectic and miss-matched look they wanted.

Designer's Tips
