Even the most skilled designers make mistakes. It can be difficult to spot our mistakes when we have been muddling over the same room design for months—sometimes a room needs a fresh set of eyes to spot the problems. Ask a friend for an honest opinion on color choice, fabrics, or room arrangement. If it is feasible, hire an interior designer for guidance—you do not have to hire one for an entire design project, as there are plenty of designers who charge by the hour. Interior designers are full of clever design tips and tricks that can transform your home.
Classic colours are certainly not going away, still love whites and greys, but also loving less traditional neutrals. In particular, the colour green, as seen in this bedroom. It works to bring a moody feel to any space but does not feel overwhelming at all. This master bedroom remains bright and sophisticated, boasting a Farrow & Ball Studio Green feature wall, and pastel soft finishing touches. Shades of dusty pink lift the moodiness of the deep green, creating the perfect balance with surrounding grey walls. Throw in some brass finishes and you are bang-on-trend!
The complimentary furnishing fabrics were key with rich velvets and a thick, lustrous silk rug specified to bring tactility to the scheme. We took much consideration to select the right sofa that framed the bay window and gave a focal point with soft interesting curves. This grown-up space is further defined by the jewellery dressing of a warm Roll & Hill globe pendant light, and metallic flashes of brass in the seating and floor lamps.
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.
