Autumn / Natures kaleidoscope of colour.Each Autumn nature gives us a spectacular kaleidoscope of intense colours, vivid rusts, burnished gold. scorched oranges through to earthy browns and with this design I wanted to replicate those colours inside this home. A bold palette of all these shades clashing and juggling for domination within an interior inspired by the 70s and 80s but also contemporary and in keeping with a home for today. A home where outside nature weaves her magic and inside where i've tried to replicate her loud and flashy splendours.
This bungalow has all the usual rooms you would expect to find and the addition of a front conservatory or garden room. A wraparound courtyard surrounds two sides of the building which sits within Autumnal parkland.
Welcome to the garden room a covered conservatory style room at the front of the building. Flag stone floors and redbrick walls add character and set the tone for most of this interior.
Plenty of space to entertain or relax.
The fabrics have been chosen with the upmost care to harmonise with natures autumn palette outside.
This home has influences from the 60s and 70s but also its own individual style.
This garden room opens to one end to the raised terrace area outside.
The right side of the property with a small paved area to the front.
This shot shows the terrace area and you begin to see the footprint of the layout.
The exterior was designed to almost blend into the colours of its surroundings and the materials of the construction have been selected to help ensure this succeeds.
Each side of the terrace has great views of the woodlands that surround this property.
A wonderful home for nature lovers and dogs.
One of my favourite shots of ths home Lis this one of the front entrance.
The foliage has turned to the burnished shades of the season.
There's a feeling of seclusion to this location even though a pathway leads through the woods and the occasional walker can be seen.
The first internal shot brings you into the kitchen area which is contemporary in feel. This room also has a small home office area and dining space.
Exposed stonework and rich autumn colours have been used throughout this room and the entire interior.

The office area sits neatly in one corner.
The lounge area is deliberately styled as a throwback to the eighties.. but I feel the look is also very suitable to any contemporary home which isn't afraid to embrace colour and panache.
Rich rusty tans bring warmth and vibrancy and a little splash of turquoise adds a burst of contrasting colour.
I love the balance these colours bring about in each other, strong self assured shades that look both inviting and stylish.
So nice how the rug and lamp base compliment each other and tie in all the other colours in this room so very well.
The hallway is spacious and offers another separate seating option.
Display unit combines a sliding door wardrobe and chenille rugs soften the stone flooring.
The side window looking through to the garden room.
A large bedroom with built in cupboards that act as a false wall to divide the space between the sleeping area and the bathroom.
The room is large enough to accommodate a bespoke sofa.
A small fireplace in the corner completes the area in the bedroom that offers an extra space to unwind and relax.
Shades of white and grey have been used to soften the boldness of the tans and orange and create a restful bedroom environment.
Looking in to the bathroom area.
This large bespoke shower room was created and a bank of extra wardrobe space added to act as a divider.
The pretty illuminated wall art seen from with the shower cubicle.
Natures colours have found their way into this bedroom and frame the sofa area in this shot.
Spacious and uncluttered this room has a graceful rustic elegance with its warm but muted colours.
Another angle of the bathroom from within the shower brings our Autumn open house to a close.
