I recently showed you some photos of a renovation project we’re working on in Flamstead – a gorgeous property that is being completely remodelled to suit a growing young families needs. This week we’ve been working on the master bedroom design, with a colour palette of calm silver, grey and heather. Once again, we’re using a variety of textures within the scheme, which is important if you want to achieve a well balanced room. It also helps add to the overall feel of luxury.
This week I revisited some clients who are part of the way through their decoration works and was thrilled to see their updates. As you enter through the front door, you immediately come into a very long and thin hallway, which when I first met my clients, had very little character, and felt a very cold and clinical space. Because it is so narrow, we were really limited on what we could do in terms of adding in pieces of furniture to try and bring in some character. We decided that adding a feature wallpaper would be great way of a doing this. The paper we chose is from Cole & Son (read more about their history and my visit to their wallpaper factory here) and just works perfectly. It’s soft grey tones sits comfortably with the wooden floor, and leads nicely into the living room. We’ve added some extra warmth to the space using copper accessories and lighting, and painted the back of the front door, a gorgeous bright turquoise. It’s amazing what a few changes can make to the overall feel of a room.
We continued the grey and copper feel into the living room next door, which has a lovely calm feel to it. The wooden flooring and copper lift the grey, so the room doesn’t feel in the least bit cold. The floor is yet to be stained, and there are still some items of furniture to be installed, but now the bespoke sofa and love seat have been delivered, the room is really coming together.
I cant wait to share the completed room with you, so keep checking back for updates. But for now, it’s the weekend, so have a great one and see you on the other side!
