Living Room Renovation
A simple re-decoration project in which the client wanted a classic and warm colour scheme for their formal living room. Blessed with generous Victorian proportions and features such as the original cornicing, I chose a warm honey-yellow for the walls to enliven what is a North-facing room, which doesn’t receive much natural light.
I specified a lighter yellow tone for the frieze and ceiling and picked out the cornicing in white to make it stand out. The honey-yellow on the main walls brings out the tiled fireplace and contrasts with the blue-tiled hearth. The client’s artwork blended in perfectly with these colours and with a crushed velvet sofa, silk cushions and curtains, the result is a harmonious, grown-up room where the client can retire to in the evenings.
