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.
The textural elements of a room often get over looked. Interior designers are schooled and excel at this textural design secret, a neutral backdrop creates a welcoming interior when mixed with warm textures such as rough hewn wooden elements, shiny tiles, nubby linens, and brushed velvets. If walls are painted in a bright orange, for example, then the bold color takes center-stage, making any textural elements disappear into the backdrop. This is not necessarily a bad thing, when done properly, but it can make a room feel unwelcoming by omitting a layered, textural design.
