This week, I am excited to share with you snaps of our most recently completed project. This is a far smaller project than ones we have shared with you in the past but certainly no less fun to do.
The client had purchased a brand new unit from a local developer and asked us to add a hefty dose of Design Intervention Pzzazz. The developer had finished this terrace home simply and with a neutral palette. Yet, the client had an adventurous spirit and a love of colour and pattern but in such a confined space, we were conscious of how easy it would be to overwhelm the space.
We began with the colour choice for the walls. Lavender is an unexpected colour choice for a living room but it succeeds beautifully here in invoking a cool, calming backdrop for the rich textiles and pattern. We added a darker lavender tone and mirrored wall moldings to add depth dimension and sparkle to the walls. Polished steel, mirror and metallic finishes amplify the sense of space. While the rich teal on the dining chairs and the oversized chandelier draws the eye to the back of the room, visually expanding the sense of space.
In this small space, graphic geometric prints and lines, sit comfortably alongside animal print and botanic pattern all grounded by the harmonious mix of greys, blues and lavender tones.
The result is a perfect blend of pattern and colour but in a calm manner that complements rather than overpowers the room. We have achieved the sense of exuberance and attention to detail that the client wanted yet still retaining a crisp tranquility.
