Contemporary luxe sitting room, north Leeds

Outwood Lane

It’s not often we get to work with an old disco, but this room had obviously seen a lot of fun at one point! It meant that we got to create a whole scheme from scratch, which is a rare luxury.  We worked together with our Client to create a very contemporary scheme, which whilst grown-up, still had a sense of humour. The room was mainly to be used in the evening, so we chose a deep colour palette, to  create a warm, inviting atmosphere. We used gorgeous fabrics – Designers Guild Varese on the sofas, and a Pret a Vivre linen for the Roman blinds – to add texture and depth to the scheme.

The spot lights were taken out replaced with beautiful wall and ceiling lights –  Bestlite BL7 wall lights and an over-size black linen pendent with diffuser – to create atmosphere and warmth. This is a big room, so we have used big pieces to work with the proportions – large sofas (from SGH) and oversized items like the ceiling pendent and rug. Then we added the finishing touches, contemporary side tables and a stunning granite shelf to run along the fireplace wall.
