The client's only brief was to make it home and use this collection of water colours somewhere in the house.
A luxury interior designers dream to be able to design without boundaries and this was the project, albeit some years ago now the classic design has stood the test of time and we still enjoy the look and feel of this project.
The entrance needed to be looked at carefully as acoustically it was a little unhomely with tiled floors and an abundance of wood, so we used a beautiful Zoffany wallpaper to help soften the sound and introduced unusual lamps to give some interest to the space, which was achieved with a feeling of both luxury and humour.
Moving into the living area, we designed a painted cabinet that was later featured in House and Gardens as it was beautifully portioned and was ideal for either a drinks cabinet or back in the day used to hide the TV, but with the popularity of a cinema rooms has become rooted in the past. The Colefax sofas are still used for country properties as their timeless appeal hasn't dated and their comfort is still renowned within the industry. The silk from James Hare was used along side with fabrics from O&L and designers guild made up incredibly well for the hand finished pelmets and roman blinds against the venetian blinds, which was innovative back in 2000.
