The brief for this project was to take a living room contained within a large country house and create a contemporary scheme more befitting a young family and whose owners were keen to be more experimental with a contemporary interior design.
The room was extremely dated and tired and was ageing both the property and the occupants. The house is surrounded by countryside and has architecturally very interesting planting. Consequently, the property has fascinating focal points to observe from the interior, and thus the choice of more tones of taupe, champagne, and deep browns were decided upon to harmonise with the outside and not to distract from the beauty of the garden. the scale of the room however, left the space feeling cold and therefore the use of deep tones and texture but with a reflective value was an immediate decision so as to create an intimate feel. This became the starting point for the design process.
