Richmond House

Rose Uniacke

Originally built during the reign of Charles II and later extended during the Georgian period, Richmond House is a very special property to restore and decorate.

As always, interior designer Rose Uniacke took her experienced, intelligent approach; to start by honouring the houses history, which she soon found after peeling away subsequent decorative layers that had been added to the property each time it was modernised. Her results were a triumph as she was soon exposed to original wide oak floor boards, impressive Adam fireplaces and cornicing that all contribute to the houses authentic spirit.

Never over furnishing, Rose created an atmosphere of restrained elegance throughout set against a neutral colour palette consisting of mainly soft off whites and duck egg blues, warmed up by organic textures of marble, wood, slate and linen - all of which contributed warmth, serenity and authenticity to the property. Mainly Georgian furniture was chosen to keep in fitting with the property’s history but in usual Rose format she mixed in more modern pieces with a rare collection of African art to give a contemporary energy.

A true signature result of a Rose Uniacke property - an effortlessly comfortable retreat, celebrating the buildings historical integrity whilst delivering timeless modernity and freshness.
