Kate Clarkson (Foswoodhouse)

Self-build home and garden influencer, Kate Clarkson, has recently decorated her new home in Yorkshire. As it was a self-build, the project involved interior designing the whole house. One thing she wanted to do was create a sophisticated space that felt stylish yet lived-in for her family. This included beading and panelling in numerous rooms throughout her home, including the master bedroom, hall, stairs and landing, WC, family bathroom, and one of her daughter’s bedrooms.

With a desire for a classic aesthetic, Kate selected distinct panelling styles for the various rooms, tailoring her choices based on size and scale. Collaborating closely with her joiner, Kate mapped out precise dimensions and spacing to ensure the overall look was subtle but striking. With her joiner's help, she attached the chosen beading and mouldings, using caulk, then paint to really bring the rooms to life.

What were once one-dimensional rooms were transformed into traditionally sophisticated spaces with added textures and undeniable character.

The painted wall panelling in the master bedroom adds depth to the space and allows the master bed to become the main focal point of the room. The added details of the archway and light oak furnishings ensure the room maintains a homely feel amongst this eye-catching feature.

To complement Kate's vision, several of Richard Burbidge’s decorative mouldings were employed to create what is a fully panelled Master Bedroom. To achieve this, Kate used Pine Decorative Panel Mouldings to enhance the architecture of the room.  Using Farrow and Ball paint in the shade Slipper Satin, the moulding is brought to life.

Continuing her cohesive design, Kate extended the use of Pine Decorative Panel Mouldings  to the halls, stairs, and landing, this time opting for Farrow and Ball’s shade School House White, creating a unified and sophisticated look throughout her self-built Yorkshire home.

For her Downstairs WC, Kate opted to add Pine Decorative Panel Mouldings to her walls, then coated them with Farrow and Ball paint in shade Wine Dark to create a rich and intimate space. In her family bathroom, Kate used Pine Decorative Panel Mouldings as her beading and Richard Burbidge’s Pine Dado Rail Mouldings to fashion a timeless and elegant wainscot wall panelling. Painted in Farrow and Ball's Terron, this choice perfectly complemented the white Plantation shutters and standalone bath. The wall panelling adds a traditional feel to this new build home that still feels contemporary.
