Light greys and creams for a Scandinavian, New England style home in Shere, Surrey
Starting in the entrance, we looked carefully at the space and decided it made sense to centralise the console to give a point of interest in the corner en route to the kitchen.
The Eames styled bubble chair and painted cherry blossom has become one of our signatures. We felt the flooring needed to be sisal in a muted shade of bark as it provided the perfect foil for the rest of the design.
The balustrade was still in it's original honey-coloured varnished finished, which we immediately changed to Farrow and Ball shirting. This supported other colours without muddying the waters. We confidently returned to The Little Green Paint company for the remaining palette which ranged from French grey to Portland stone.
The bed was illuminated from behind, which gave the French muslin a lovely life form of its own. The bespoke louvered joinery, not only housed hanging space to the right but conveniently hid the WC and shower to the left, leaving only the illuminated Stark bath on show.
Being mindful of up-cycling we re-sprayed the dressing table and added new handles in order to revamp the piece. This complimented the interior superbly.
With a little serendipity, we sourced twisted painted lamps from a little hideaway in the design quarter of Chelsea... a never to be repeated find, that allowed us to deliver yet another completely unique piece for one of our clients.
The Romo fabric made up superbly, not only to recover an existing chair but the loose cover of the bed. Our upholsters are always on hand to help with pieces that are just too good to replace (and to help save our planet!).
