Could this be Twickenham's most stylish home?

Continuing on with our series of Home Styles we went along to visit the lovely Cynthia's adorable home in Twickenham. Her interior styling being a mixture of modern yet comfortable subtlety with the odd statement piece for an extra streak of personality is what lead her to us. The results are quite spectacular. 

Question 1: Describe your interior style?

 Our interiors style is a mixture of Old English and new mixed together. We also keep the rooms as period as possible to the property and just add a few touches of modern furniture, fixtures and fitting. We love a minimalist look. We are Pinterest inspired but we like to add our own little touches and not follow the trend so much.

Question 2: What motivated you to choose shutters within your home?

My love affair with Plantation Shutters started as a little girl growing up in The Seychelles. The Grand Houses and Plantation Houses had plantation shutters on the doors and windows. A mix of French and English Colonial style. My husband first used Plantation Shutters in a house we developed in Acton W3 in 2011. The love carried on from there. We had them fitted in our flat on Kneller Road TW2 and now in our House in Colonial Avenue TW2. They are very easy to clean & does not need any maintenance. I personally think they add a great feature to the room and act as a focal point same a fire place would do in a room. Shutters go with any interior look one chooses. 

Question 3: Your property is beautiful, tell us what differentiates your property from others in this area of London?

We love Victorian Houses and we believe bringing them back to life and adding the modern chic elevates the house. Our home is still an ongoing project towards our forever home goals inside and outside.

Question 4: What’s the best thing about living where you do?

Our area is very safe, great schools and families. It’s a lovely place to live and have a family. We have a lovely park and beautiful Richmond and Kingston is on our door step. 

Question 5: What difference (s) have you noticed in your home since your shutters have been installed?

Since we had the Shutters installed, they have completed and complimented all the 3 rooms. They are a great focal point and there is something so clean and fresh about having Shutters in rooms. I love them! 

It’s always wonderful for us to hear about the journeys that our clients take to us and what our shutters mean for them and their families once they’re installed.You can find many more loving testimonials, just like this one, over on our Customer Reviews page.

Customer Reviews

Recommended to me by a friend and I would highly recommend Plantation Shutters to anyone else who is looking to get shutters installed. Super helpful service from the whole team at Plantation Shutters. From initially measuring up while I was abroad with work, to adjusting my order when I had changed my mind and the top-quality installation. Most importantly, the customer service and transparency has been great. I placed this order on 4th Feb (just as COVID-19 was spreading to Europe). The team were in regular contact throughout and still delivered on time - even a global pandemic could not derail them! Impressive stuff! Thanks again!!
