ULSTER TATLER INTERIORS features a grand, Belfast property which was a finalist for house of the year at the Ulster Tatler awards 2019.
This grand three-storey detached dwelling, is distinct in character, featuring faux sandstone detailing and a castellated tower. The back of the property is afforded much privacy, enjoying beautiful panoramic views of Belfast Lough, Royal Belfast Golf Club and the northern coastline.
The project objective for this extension was to provide openplan kitchen/living/dining accommodation to the ground floor, that would exploit and enhance the attributes of the site and establish a greater connection with both the garden and its spectacular surroundings.
The addition of a Victorian style orangery with a bold monolithic use of colour creates a living space like no other. Aesthetically, the interior styling by Kris Turnbull draws its influences from a peacock’s feather. This was achieved through the use of both deep natural tones and bold colours, which further reflect the strong greens and purples of the adjacent landscape, ensuring synergy between the interior and exterior.
The one-off bi-fold hardwood windows and doors provide the perfect means for natural light to envelop the open plan, multifunctional area. The inclusion of an alfresco dining area complimented by Lutron lighting control and audio systems supplied by Bang & Olufsen fulfils the client’s wish to entertain large parties. The ceiling mounted, flueless bioethanol fire was chosen as a flue could not be installed through the balcony as this would have destroyed the aesthetic look.
Furthermore, the swivel capacity of this fire allowed directional heating where desired. This feature is undoubtedly a beautiful and stylish edition to this home, providing instant warmth and cosiness.
