We had previously completed a commission on a TV unit for this client when she got back in touch wanting us to redesign a small sideboard for her dining room.


As with all of our commissions, I aim for the redesign to be collaborative. A home is our personal space and by changing a piece of furniture, it can give you a complete new appreciation for using a room. I always aim to get as much from the client as possible: What colours they like for the paint? What colour hardware would like to use? What style would they like to achieve?


For this commission the lady wanted a lighter tone of cream so after sending through paint swatches, we decided on Fusion Mineral Paint Champlain for a neutral, warm white. To compliment the accessories and other features of the dining, we decided on a silver handles. For a vintage, modern accent, we chose an original Victorian silver handle which looked absolutely stunning – a statement detail for a simple design.
