Interior / June 22, 2018 / .
What most of us do not understand is that interior design takes a very keen and knowledgeable eye. We may be out shopping and see something we love, but that does not necessarily mean that it will look perfect in our home. Interior designers understand how color, lighting, room size, scale, and placement all affect how items look in a room and dictates whether they will make or break a room design.
Your home should speak to who you are. It should be like a personal memoir of your trips, your loves, your life. There is nothing worse than walking into someones home to be greeted by beige walls, brown furniture and one mass produced print on the wall, pretending to be art. The above mentioned room just screams BORING! and we know our readers are far from boring. So, do not be shy when it comes to your home decor.
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.
2018 is the year of the colour pop on the interiors scene and this living room completed by us last year perfectly illustrates how embracing bright colours will help you achieve a room that wows. This room really makes a statement with purposeful hits of bold colours in the deep sumptuous teal velvet on the seating, vibrant yellow lighting and splashes of pink in the accessories it creating a fresh, energised and personality packed room. The statement art above the sofa incorporating all the colours in the scheme brings cohesion and cements those colour pops!
