Interior / June 25, 2018 /
This image sums up spring. The soft and delicate pastels are feminine but not saccharine. The colour palette is beautifully calming for a bedroom and the warm brass tones add to the sense of luxury. The contrasting textures are so important, crisp white cotton sheets contrast with the lux velvet headboard and throw. I always like to add an edge to feminine interiors and the sharp lines of the bedside table and light work well as a juxtaposition to the soft furnishings. The bespoke cushion in cut velvet fabric also serves to toughen up the scheme and adds a wonderful pop of bold colour. This look is easy to achieve as there is so many lovely brass fixtures and tables at the moment. Mix up the hard and soft textures and always throw in something bold to a soft-hued scheme.
The reason this fresh contemporary style dining room was designed in this striking modern style was that it formed part of a new rear extension with Bi-fold doors leading onto the rear garden. Light streams in through the back of the property, thus allowing a strong vibrant fuchsia pink colour to be used as the feature wall. The Italian clear glass pendant lights complement the white gloss family dining table with Aram chairs in black and white. Art bought from galleries in London give it a charming and welcoming look and the sculptural black ceramic vintage vase with fresh cherry blossom creates a stunning backdrop for family entertaining.
