Brief: To design and co-ordinate a new decorative scheme for the main living space and ‘snug’ area on the ground floor of the home.

It’s All in the Detail…
Creating a space which feels a bit special is a careful combination of factors which can be, unfortunately, overlooked. Accessories, materials and finishing are the fundamentals which are often substituted or left out altogether. When you walk in to a room where these factors are not considered it can feel a little ‘flat’, however, when chosen well they offer a feeling of cohesion and distinction which you just can’t put your finger on but you know it feels good!
Below is an image gallery giving you a closer look at some of the accessories, finishing and furniture I have used in some of my work. Please feel free to add your own wonderful finds and links to the comments section at the bottom of the page.

The New England Shutter Company supplied these shutters with a bespoke finished to match the rest of the wood work in this French Boudoir in Farrow & Ball Blackened.
This GP&J Baker printed linen was used on the contrasting outside back of a dressing table chair.
Bespoke storage was made to fit inside the built-in wardrobes to free up space in the room. The inside of the drawers were painted a contrasting colour to match the colour on the chimmney breast wall.

A modern alternative on a curtain tie-back. Neat and stylish, these chrome studded hold-backs look fab next to the zesty colour of the curtain.
The original tired floorboards were treated with a soft wood lye which bleached the colour from them, they were then sanded and treated with white wood oil. A stunning contemporary finish, complemented the sophisticated grey palette in the room and let the accessories really pop.
An iconic original Platner coffee table was used in the centre of the room to create a talking point and tie together all the modern elements. It looks great garnished with some handsome looking coffee table books.
