We absolutely love the colour of the cabinets and the brass features.”

Guest Bedroom Two

Kirsty and Jesse prove that a window’s placement is a positive rather than a negative when designing a wardrobe for a secondary bedroom. The pair opted to use the window in their Second Guest Bedroom as the centrepiece to plan their U-shaped robe around.

At the same time, Satin Brass Rounded Bar handles add the finishing touch to creating the Hamptons style found throughout their home.
