25 Beautiful Homes
One of our new build projects from this year has been featured in 25 Beautiful Homes.
“Studio Hooton approached this project with their wide network of artisans who made the majority of bespoke furniture and furnishings for the house to create character within the classic architecture… and much consideration was given on how to integrate the furniture from the clients’ previous home”

When it came to furnishings, fabric and paint colours, the pair asked interior designer Emma Hooton for guidance. “Having Emma involved in the project worked really well”, says Michael. “We have always favoured grey and blue colour schemes with occasional flashes of colour, but on our own we would never have chosen bright green or burnt orange for accents, for example, yet Emma knew it would work.”
With Emma at the helm, Michael and Sarah were also encouraged to be a bit bolder with other choices. “Given a free rein in decorating, we probably would have used much of our old furniture from the previous house in our new home,” admits Michael “Emma was right, however, when she said that they just wouldn’t have suited the new schemes here. So other than two lamps and our bed, virtually nothing came with us. Working with Emma also allowed us to access the wide network of artisans who made the majority of the furnishings and furniture for this house.”
