Interior Design – How To Design A Sophisticated Family Home

Designer Jessica Cotton was inspired by the property’s elegant Georgian architecture when designing this family home. By respecting the space’s traditional bones and adding sophisticated decor that’s also family-friendly, Jessica was able to create an inviting, livable space for her client. See how she designed an elegant family home with pattern, colour and refined details.

Though it looks like a do-not-touch home, the space is actually very kid-friendly. Jessica kept the client’s two children in mind, so was careful to choose durable pieces that could take some wear-and-tear. Elegant accents, like glass chandeliers and panel moulding in the master bedroom, add a high-end aesthetic that’s still suitable for a young family. An Art Deco inspired dining table sits in the dining room among pinstripe wallpaper, adding even more glam to the tasteful space.

i can't imagine children living in that house :/

Feels like hotel or property for rent. Doesn't feel like an everyday family home.

What is up with these white walls all over the house with a home of this size? This house has very little character. Its a shame with all that space it is just adding crap to just say "hey, I had a designer do my layout" It looks too sterile. There are some nice features but those gawdy chandeliers are so bland.

This is a great video – we often have the chance to work with sophisticated and beautiful family homes around the UK – to fit fireplaces. However, this video gives some really good family friendly ideas :)

Derek Li says:

The dinning (conference) room is too serious.

I was surprised to see so much modern in the Georgian home.  I expected something different – but it is gorgeous.   The bathroom – over the top with WOW!   Sure is pretty.

Adrienne Jones says:

This home was very disappointing… Yes you used expensive materials and it looks like an expensive home but its lacking personality and decor…I honestly think I could style the home better…

I bet it is a pleasure to work with "clients like these" meaning deep pockets with money to throw away.
Looks nice.  Kitchen is my favorite.

Jane Norris says:

Looks like a Robert Norris architectural interior design.

Purity says:

The children's bathroom is beyond beautiful.

A very pretty and elegant home. It's a little too white for me. I would want a little more earthy Beige or dark wood to warm it up. But I love blues  and I need that dinning room table!

Omg the "children's bathroom" though.
How lovely it must be to grow up stupidly rich!
