What do a church in Glenelg, old furniture and a young family have in common? Homewood’s talented interior designers were hired to remodel an old church in Glenelg and turn it into the new home of a young family. The clients specified a classic interior that would match the interior design of the building in terms of style. Even more so – they recently inherited old furniture and wanted to restore it and continue to use it. So the idea for an eclectic interior was born, where modern and ancient are combined in an imaginative way.
Old furniture complete the restored interior design of the former church
The reconstruction of the church took place in two stages – first the wooden ceilings and the floorboards were restored, the walls repainted and the windows and doors replaced. Then the rooms were completely redesigned – the large reception room was converted into a living area with dining area and corner kitchen, the hallway became a bathroom, the transition zone – a cabinet.
The inherited antiques were then restored and skillfully combined with modern schabby-chic furniture. The result is a stylish and cozy interior where the family feels comfortable and can relax. The old side tables, wardrobes and day beds fascinate with richly detailed ornamented frames and a beautiful pattina. Exotic kilims and decorations with moss and dried flowers add to the interior concept.
Old furniture adds a classy touch
The highlight in the interior is the Chesterfield sofa. The noble piece of furniture creates a seamless connection between the dining area and the lounge area in the living room. Behind the sofa, a plant arrangement with moss and evergreen branches adds a natural touch. The large dining table with elaborate wood carving behind the couch offers seating for six people – so nothing stands in the way of social evenings with friends.
