It’s been a great pleasure working on this fabulously grand house in Oxford’s Boar’s Hill. Not least producing this bespoke library space with wrap around custom built bookshelves, and leading through to the drawing room with highly decorative re-design. A key feature on the Citrine green drawing room was to bring the fireplace back into focus, as the original surround had been lost. However we have just given a bit of grandeur back to the space and a point to the room, with this newly commissioned fire surround.
Inspiration for the fireplace was taken from the adjacent library, and on an even grander scale, one which still remained intact on the first floor
Marble for the insert was sourced locally and had a slight green tint and a fleck that added to its overall quality. The piece stool almost 6ft in the end. We were enormously pleased with the design that we produced for the surround and which was created in conjunction with the Barr Joinery team.
Please go take a look at the rest of this lovely house on our main page here, it’s full of surprises and some amazing colours!
