This impressive room required some softer touches balanced with some statement colour. The client wanted the space to feel cosy and welcoming particularly as this was an area for family to gather. The choice of furniture was important, the configuration had to work to facilitate up to eight people. As the room was a generous size it was important to find furniture at an appropriate scale. A textured grey reclining fabric sofa in an L-shape configuration as well as an additional sofa complimented the space perfectly. The scale of this room made it clear to me that selecting a rich colour for the walls was important especially given that it was South facing. I made the decision also to extend the same colour option to the impressive high apex ceiling. A statement companion colour for the chimney breast to completed the look.
