The main features in this open plan kitchen / living room were the purple sofa which was staying and the kitchen units (some lime green, some beige) and the walnut wood floor, worktop and splashback. There was a grey textured rug on the floor too.
However the walls were white and the window was bare. The room felt a little cold and clinical. The client was keen to be adventurous with the space but just did not know where to begin!
Here a a few photos of how it looked before – scroll down to see the ‘after’ photographs.
My client had some photos she wanted to incorporate into her new living room so we created a gallery wall over the sofa with a mixture of frames – some old, some new and a traditional mirror just to reflect a little bit of that dramatic pattern on the wall behind.
Last but not least, some new silk cushions completed the space. When I had originally showed my client some colours that would work as accents in the room, she picked out the garnet red and teal green, so although there is just a tiny amount of these shades on the cushion stripes, they add to the overall impact when you walk into the room.
