They also loved Greenleaf (if you haven’t seen it, it’s a Netflix series about a wealthy family from Memphis, Tennessee) and took a few cues from the amazing mansion the family lives in.
“In particular, we chose really dark, high-polished wooden floors, which add a strength of character to the house that was a bit lacking before. A few of our friends tried to change our minds, but now they can see our vision really works.”
We think their interior design ideas have shaped up pretty nicely so far!
Nicky and John wanted to make sure that the house was youthful and vibrant.
“We wanted to live in the country, but not necessarily in a house that screamed it,” says John.
“The original structure was built in the 1940s, and then the previous owners extended substantially about 10 years ago, so the house didn’t have anything in the way of period features.”
The couple decided that alternating bold colours with gentler hues would help give it that stamp of personality they wanted.
“The colours layer together really beautifully, from the punchy Copper Blush of the gym to First Dawn in the lounge, and then Sapphire Salute in the office,” says Nicky.
