First of February already, wow how the time flies when you have lots of different projects to work on! January was a great month for us, it has seen us finishing off some great projects and starting some new ones. One of my favourite projects from last year has had a few sneak peaks, first we had a look at some of the items to create a traditional and modern design (bit of an oxymoron but it works) and then we were searching for a bench to finish off the hallway (we don't usually do after thoughts like this but it worked out really well). So now here are a few of the best detail shots from the gorgeous open plan lounge.
It was really important with this project to keep the detailing very traditional whilst going for more modern fabrics, the cushions have all been piped and the detailing on the arm of the chair below is very traditional and works perfectly in a soft brushed cotton. The overall feel of the property is very open and fresh, the clients are used to living abroad and therefore used to a lot more space than London living affords you.
For me these poufs are simply amazing, the pop of colour is fantastic and it works to bring out the gorgeous pops of blue in the bespoke carpet that was made especially for these clients - It really is the centre piece of the room that draws everything together. It's always wonderful when you can bring together off the shelve inexpensive items together with bespoke hand crafted pieces, it helps to be able to layer the design together and create consistency that might otherwise be lost - especially when bringing together two very much opposing design ideas.
Also the newly finished floor simply shines in this area of the room, it can be so rewarding to see traditional modern interior design working to not only bring together two different design ideas but also to help restore an original feature of a property.
