KLC Alumni in Home World Design

Monday 21 August, 2017 at 10:00

KLC Full Time Diploma Alumni, Caroline Iredale, has completed a fantastic Chiswick renovation with the company she works with, Slightly Quirky. This project has been featured in the magazine, Home World Design.

Slightly Quirky (founded by Deborah Moor) brings fresh ideas to the world of design, by creating designs that provide the “wow” factor but are also practical and easy to live with.

This Chiswick home is a beautiful period property with features such as marble fireplaces, detailed coving and tall sash windows. Many of the vintage pieces in the home were very important to the client; however it did not represent their style.

Slightly Quirky created a new style for this period property. The team injected light and colour to the property to create a vibrant, sophisticated family house. The scheme they used is sympathetic to the style of the house, yet modern and fresh.

In order to create a more modern and 21st century home, they used a strong colour palette, vibrant textiles and materials such as glass and plastic. If you would like to read more about how Caroline and Deborah renovated this home, click to view the full article here!

Caroline commented on this project through her blog explaining, “I think why this project, in particular, has resonated with so many people is that it is a good example of a situation many people in London may find themselves in: trying to update a period property for modern day living, in a fun, interesting and unusual way.”

KLC would like to wish Caroline and Slightly Quirky great success in the future ahead.
