The extensive renovation of this double-story Wellington villa began with the design of an interior colour and material palette influenced by some well-loved pieces in the clients’ existing home. The coffee coloured oak features were inspired by an antique dresser in the old kitchen – beautiful, but not the most practical storage solution. The custom-made oak island is now the centrepiece of the kitchen. A place for this busy, sociable family to come together for meals and informal gatherings with friends, as well as providing a tactile and practical work surface and much needed storage.

“We are delighted with the result of the design, advice and project management work Frances from Honour Creative did when we undertook a renovation of our villa. Frances guided us to identify the look and feel we wanted that would also work with our style of house, and then provided advice and options for products that fitted with our vision. Frances is professional and pleasant to work with, and communicated really well and transparently with us. Frances worked effectively with a range of other tradespeople involved in our house renovation which helped it go more smoothly. It is obvious Frances has high standards and cares about customer satisfaction and the quality of the end result. Frances is practical as well as creative, so our house not only looks good, but it’s also very functional.”
