A beautiful solution that explores new ways to think about their Space, new material elements to experience within their Space and new function for the development of their New Space. The pretty parts are only half of a well-developed solution. I start the process with Mood & Inspiration Boards combined with tactile samples.

McNeil Design Group Interiors ‘Serene White Home Office’. This white-on-white fresh serene Home Office boasts a plethora of closed and open storage. Every aspect of this custom desk was assessed and granted the Client with a completely tailored space to ensure a clean high-functioning work space.

McNeil Design Group Interiors ‘Custom Den and Cabinetry’
This project saw a tight dining room converted into a cozy, high functioning, customized working Den. The contrast of the surfaces was minimized by collaborating the wood tones of the flooring and cabinetry, while allowing the custom desk to play centre stay in it’s warm wood tone. The cabinetry was tailored to house the Clients collection of character pieces, books, office necessities (printer, media storage, filing drawers etc) and Sci-Fi collectables.
The furnishings were selected with the possibility of utilizing the space in a multifunctional. There are alternative space plans for the room where the desk slides to the window becoming a bar and two more chairs (in a tailored stripe) join to create a centre chair grouping of four for entertaining.
Lots of function in a moderately sized space.
