White painted floors (we sloshed liberal amounts of white floor paint on to the concrete floor and it came out glossy, lush and hardwearing), floppy linen table cloths and a fine weave wool rug create a relaxed and intimate space for two. The painted X-back chairs keep things simple and honest.
This was a rather dark and dull space, but the client was brave and went for the yellow painted server (from Block & Chisel). It works SO well to add some zip to the space. Colour was further enhanced by the striped jute rug that reduced the volume of the otherwise overwhelming, dark parquet flooring. The whimsical botanical prints on the wall and floral collection on the server, further lifting the mood.
This room is a peaceful and restful retreat. This inviting atmosphere is created by combining a casual mix of cotton stripes, hand-blocked prints and a splash of sharp colour in the Jean Monro scatter cushion on the bed. The hemp carpeting on the floor works so well as a base for any casual interior.
This room was designed to endure high traffic and come out looking good. The dark chocolate paisley fabric on the large, comfy sofa hides a multitude of sins and is easy to clean. The sharp pink sofa offsets the chocolate paisley perfectly. The red antique painted box allows for extra storage and creates a buzz of colour that is enhanced by the stripy floor rug.
I had these oversized armchairs custom-made so my clients could sprawl out and read a good book or snuggle up with a child for some QT. The room was dark with poor incoming natural light, so I covered most of the dark parquet floor with a pale grass matt. The fab round coffee table works a treat to bounce more light around the room. Love this room!
