Pretty as a Picture
November 15 2017
Inspiration for the style of a room can come from many places. It might be the luxurious decadence of a boutique hotel, the memory of the blues of the sea and sky on a recent holiday or a favourite piece in your home that just feels unique and special to you. We love to draw out these stories from our clients as so often they can inspire a personalised space and a happy home style.
We recently created a Cocoon my Room board where the starting point was a favourite painting. The painting had been given as a first wedding anniversary present and so had great sentimental value. It also brought a fabulous burst of colour into an otherwise beige living room with splashes of zingy orange, rich teal and glamorous gold; what a colour palette! Since this living room was to be used as an adult space for evening relaxation and entertaining we brought in soft velvet cushions, cosy mohair throws and a glamorous buttoned footstool, as well as stylish side tables and lamps to bring soft low level lighting come evening.
The end result is a gorgeous room that feels just like “home” to the owners. What inspires your home style? We’d love to hear your stories….
