Interiors Before & After
Guest Room / Interior Design
Townhouse SW London
My clients' brief for this room was to create a boutique style guest room in their London Townhouse. They were happy to trust me using a deep wall colour which also supports the beautiful metal fireplace. The wall colour is carried through into the en-suite with accents of colour in the bedroom collected in the lampshades, ginger jars, leather bound books and the custom re-upholstered chairs.
Drawing Room / Interior Design
Townhouse SW London
This Drawing Room was a perfect example of the wrong wall colour throwing everything in the room off. My clients thought the wall colour was gray but infact the blue in the gray was to prominent causing a strong sense of coldness. Despite my clients buying various furniture items to make the room more inviting..nothing seemed to work. The drawing room still felt cold and consequently my clients did not use the room at all.
They hired me and I set about the transformation. The first thing I did was to change the wall colour to a colour which provided the warmth they and the room desired and because they no longer liked the association with the old furniture, custom made sofas and chairs I recommended, including the new coffee table, and four standard lamps (solving the need for side tables) took up residence and the space became inviting, stylish and very comfortable.
One of my best compliments as a Interior Designer was to hear how they enjoyed the 'new' Drawing Room now on a regular basis as did their teenage daughter. Family times were restored!
Recording Studio SW London Interior Design
My client is a very sucessful Record Producer known for his hit records worldwide. My brief was to change the reception area from an office into a 'hang out' room for the musicians to use in-between takes and to carry the interior theme through into the studio. The key here for my interior design was not to compete with the creativity that takes place in each recording session; but to visually support the music that is being written & recorded here.
