“Janine Stone specialises in large-scale residential projects which are centred in authenticity with strong historical references and sensitivity to the architecture and surroundings. A highly professional team offering the complete package from initial concept to complete construction, so clients can relax. At the helm, Janine offers a personal, colourful vision with a sensitive commitment to detail”.
“Janine Stone places the client’s aspiration top of the priority list and seek to find ways to make the improvements they require whilst enhancing an existing building, whether by traditional or contemporary design and, if necessary, educating local planners to the sense of this approach. Through good design the limitations that the planning policies suggest can be challenged and bettered and the result can be an improved home to meet the needs of modern family living and one that becomes a legacy for future generations.”
“One of the UK’s leading architectural and design companies has bucked the trend and avoided advocating its own in-house style”.
House & Garden
“Janine Stone creates exquisitely observed decorative schemes; a recent project included an elegant main bathroom within a beautiful Grade 1 English manor house, so it was important that the interior treatments of the house integrated seamlessly with the historical setting. The space has been given a modern take on a classic look with double bow fronted cabinetry, a handsome stand-alone roll-top bath and the generous proportions of the marble shower with refined nickel fittings take centre stage. Crystal door handles and silver and crystal accessories are set against beautiful honed marble and bevel edged mirrors to maintain a light and airy atmosphere. The wall panelling and pale window treatments were used to give the bathroom a formal elegance and these themes followed through to the master suite to connect the spaces.”
“Leading interior designer, Janine Stone’s breadth of work ranges from innovative new build villas on the Mediterranean coast and sensitive renovations of fine period houses to the transformation of a penthouse apartment in the heart of Mayfair”.
FT How to Spend It
Commenting on the trend for underground garage installations:
“A recent project by international architectural and interior design firm, Janine Stone involved building an underground garage complex in the Home Counties to house a classic car collection, which included a Bugatti Veyron and Ferrari Enzo, a McLaren and a Maserati to name but a few super cars. The owner wanted to create a ‘jewel box’ showcase for his rare marques and the jukebox style stacking system to take cars to designated bays was the answer”.
