Project name: Foxrock

Location: Dublin

Date completed: November 2019

Architects: Hedgeroe

Interior Designer: Hedgeroe

The master bedroom in this Dublin home had been renovated by Hedgeroe Home’s Design Team with a classic style in mind, whilst also considering the sustainability of design. Layering fabrics and textures gave the room depth and character, whilst the neutral tones ensured that this bedroom space was a calming haven for the client.

The design brief given to Hedgeroe Home was to deliver a calming yet classic bedroom. The entire master bedroom was refurbished, starting with the wooden flooring which was re-stained and finished. Due to the room being generous in size, the designers chose to create ‘areas’ within the bedroom. One of the standout areas is the bay window which Hedgeroe Home worked with the client to use as her makeup/dressing table area, due to the wonderful abundance of natural light that the window area offered.

Hedgeroe Home’s client wanted tones of neutral with pops of pattern; this concept is best shown in the art deco armchair where the design team upholstered the side in a bold Nicholas Haslam fabric. Upholstery was a big part of this design – Hedgeroe Home reused many pieces such as the armchair and headboard, based on their belief that it is important to be sustainable in design. By upholstering and reusing pieces, the designers gave them a new lease of life.

The classic interior was created by mixing textures and finishes for a timeless approach. Hedgeroe Home layered lots of textures in the same tones for depth, and the woven paper works well as a backdrop for the furniture. The upholstered wardrobe doors were one of the key aspects of the bedroom, since it previously offered a long wall of wardrobe doors which needed to be addressed. Hedgeroe Home worked them into the scheme by making them a feature, and covering them in a beautiful fabric which compliments other textures and tones within the design.
