What we did

Keeping the character of the house intact, we have been able to lighten, soften and update the interior. A rethink of lighting and electrical schemes, a complete redecoration and a hand-built kitchen have all contributed to a 21st century home. A hands-on approach to this project has seen us ‘setting up home’ – filling log baskets to unpacking household goods. The house has been furnished with practical yet quirky solutions curated from many of our local suppliers here in Devon.


The Result

A real home from home that exudes a relaxed ambience reflecting the personalities of the young family who will enjoy spending time here.

The moment of truth

What did they think?

"Ashton House Design were fantastic all round- both creative and practical, they've created a beautiful space for us that looks lovely and also functions very well as a home. We also found them great to work with during the process- they made it all extremely smooth and assisted with not just the design, but putting it all together and making it work. We will certainly be doing future projects with them. Very highly recommended!"
