Strata Glen herringbone floor
With spring finally having sprung, the blossom season in full swing, and gardens looking greener by the day, we thought we'd look back at a project by Bridget Reading ID, completed last summer, where it’s all about bringing the outside in. The interior makes the most of new-found light with a double-height cosy sitting room, lush green wallpaper mimicking the greenery from the garden, and our warm grey Strata Glen herringbone floor offering elegance and character.
The basement extension in this Grade II Listed House in Camden, north London, completed a decade earlier, includes a contemporary frameless glass extension, improving connectivity between the house and the garden. The interior designer Bridget Reading was called in last year to help with a complete refurbishment.
The interior makes the most of the newfound light with a double-height cosy sitting room, including a glass ceiling. Lush green wallpaper mimics the greenery from the garden, and the oak-panelled wall gives another nod to nature. Our warm grey Strata Glen herringbone floor runs across the whole level - from the kitchen at one end through the dining area and into the sitting room. The herringbone offers a dynamic element, as well as elegance and character, in an otherwise straight linear space. The slightly oversized batten gives a modern twist to this classic pattern.
Strata Glen is a contemporary grey oak, available in wide-plank, herringbone and chevron parquet. The Strata range - high-quality oak floors with a simple sanded finish in a curated palette of distinctive colours - offers craftsmanship and excellent value for money.
