A fabulous opportunity to be a little bit different, and push a little at the boundaries. At SGH we strongly believe that a house will tell you the direction it needs to take – it’s bones, it’s structure will inform the design, and what will sit happily within it’s spaces. So, when we started the design of a teenage girls bedroom, in a Tudor House, there was a little bit of tension – a tautness that pulled at the bones of the brief – we were able to work with this, and create a perfect sanctuary for this particular Client.
Grey & purple were the request colour palette – but the newly arrived Farrow & Ball Paean Black allowed us to be quite daring and bold, whilst still on brief. This colour worked beautifully with the bespoke fitted wardrobes – note the wonderfully scribed in cabinetry, which wobbles like a jelly, as it meets the ancient wall. The classic style of the cabinetry is balanced with the rich, contemporary colour. Curtains made up in linen mix, a simple classic cartridge pleat, and again balanced with the fun, ‘Neon’ pole in Aubergine by Byron & Bryon. Furniture with brass accents and lots of texture to warm up the Manor House Grey walls. A final flourish – the curtain of fairy lights, cascading down the bed wall, brining to life the whole scheme. And ticking some teenage boxes.
