We all have hand me down furniture. Some are prized possessions, while others are weighing us down with distaste and guilt. Do you have one of those guilty objects in your home? You know, that piece that was handed down to you, you hate it, you want to hide it in the basement, but you can not because it was a gift from Grandma? Why make this decorating mistake? Why have something in your home that does not bring you joy and happiness?
We love the confident, unconventional and out-of-the-ordinary style for this family kitchen. The simple, neat and clean lines combined with the choice of modern style furniture makes this kitchen a playful and elegant space. The style selected and the layout designed gives the privilege of moving freely in the space and allows the owner to enjoy every moment of the cooking ritual.
Utilise the front reception room, making this a more adult driven space where they could find peace and entertain guests. The design scheme for this room was inspired by the spirit of a library, with the aim of creating a cosy member’s club feel for after dinner drinks. The right hue of blue enabled us to inject enriched classic tones into the walls and bespoke joinery, offering a sense of calm for a truly relaxed environment. The Farrow & Ball Stiffkey Blue used on the walls is a confident colour with a contemporary edge and brings drama to this reception room.
Every room needs a focal point, it offers a place for the eye to rest and assigns a room with a function, Larger rooms can have more than one focal point. This is a very common mistake, forgetting to give each room a purpose or point to focus on. Some rooms are simple, in a TV room the focal point usually ends up being the TV and the unit it is placed on, while all the other main objects in the room are focused and pointing towards the TV.
