Project Reveal: Schoolhouse Pt 1

We’ve been sharing sneak peeks on social media of our latest Schoolhouse re-design project for the past week. We are excited to unveil this project’s full reveal on our blog.

Read on to explore our playful modern Schoolhouse Interior Design Project!


Enticing Entrance

Here at Centre Staged Designs, we know how to make a grand entrance.

Upon entering the home, we aimed to draw attention to the interior’s high ceilings and architectural details by featuring the existing arched windows and structural wood beams, blasting and returning them to their natural glory.

DESIGN- Schoolhouse

Staircase Design

The original Schoolhouse stairs ran across the two windows at the front of the home, which blocked the beautiful landscape across the road and the stunning architectural details.
With this in mind,

We proposed shifting the staircase to create an openness and the potential to have the windows and a focal point that you can appreciate throughout the home. I can’t get over the “wow” factor added to this space!

Looking at the before and after photos has me appreciating every decision made.

Refreshing Kitchen

In the heart of the home is an elevated modern kitchen. Bringing the outdoors in with greenery and a natural palette adds a playful twist on this old meets new design.

Seeing the progress photos shows what kind of work went into this project.

Bellamy Custom Homes did a phenomenal job bringing the clients and our vision to life. After lots of brainstorming, we created the open concept for the floor plan that the client wanted while maintaining the integrity of this beautiful 1872 schoolhouse. What an incredible outcome with incredible people and clients!

Playful Primary Suite

Now I know, a giant window in your bedroom?! One of the main focuses of this re-design was to showcase the beauty of the existing windows. And this does just that!

Imagine waking up to natural light pouring in from gorgeous arched windows through a floor-to-ceiling window to overlook a mesmerizing view.

The ensuite was kicked off with this beautiful concrete floor that the client found from Concrete Collective. All 1200lbs of it! The dark, contrasting colour palette mixed with the raw materials creates the perfect moody organic atmosphere for this ensuite.
