Jill, Swarland, Northumberland
Not far from Gosforth High Street, our clients' impressive terraced house is being renovated to a high standard,
without spoiling the period features with great taste and charm.
NOOK's brief was to design and install a library wall in the first-floor living room, around the original marble fireplace
and incorporating the doorway into the room.
The library should be almost full height but still expose the existing ornate cornice and exactly match the original high skirting.
The design needed to include storage for a large vinyl LP record collection, many books, new wall lighting and use door and drawer handles collected by our clients over several years.
A library ladder allowed access to the highest shelves and fluted pilasters suitable columns for the new upturned lights.
Finished in Little Greene (221) Basalt Blue the new library wall is another lovely feature in a wonderful home.
“ We are delighted with the library wall that Nook Design built for us, the final result captures our vision perfectly. Great craftsmanship with lots of lovely design details that reflect the period features of our home. Thank you! “

Mrs. S from Morpeth wanted the cupboard under the stairs which had accumulated years of clutter, updated.
As a book lover she envisaged a small library with desk, a secret recess for personal papers
and as a jigsaw enthusiast, large drawers for storing her favorites.
The dark and rather dingy space was transformed into a warm bright additional room with oak flooring, plenty of shelving for books, a fold down desk and matching oak stool, and jigsaw shaped drawer handles, a secret cupboard completed the conversion.
“I am thrilled, my husband is gob-smacked! I dreamt about creating this magical space for long time; it’s surpassed my every expectation”
