Originally from the city, and with David still working as the chairman of a plastics packaging factory in Manchester, this country retreat, with beautiful extensive gardens, has been designed with the idea of being a tranquil retirement home, now the children have own the nest and they start to wind down. The couple chose Aquajade in Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria, to help them make their own interior design ideas a reality.
“Philip and myself kind of designed the bathroom as we went along really,” admits Jacqui. “We didn’t have a brief as such, it was a case of trawling through brochures and looking at various samples in the showroom etc. We really wanted to make the most of the space we had, as the area was larger than an average bathroom. We also wanted to make a feature of the bath by choosing the stand-alone one and placing it in front of the window.”Aquajade Bathrooms | aquajade.co.uk
