The sitting room lacking personality and cosiness, in Blandford

Brief: To make the sitting room more cosy

This was a design - only project. The clients wanted help to make their sitting room cosy. They planned to cover their sofa in dark red fabric. The recommendations were as follows:

  • Paint the wall and chimney breast in warm dark grey, Dulux Bowler Hat, partly to take the emphasis away from the TV, partly to coordinate with the sofa and partly because it will lend a sophisticated but warm feel to the room

  • Paint the rest of the walls in Egyptian cotton - a griege colour which is neither grey nor beige

  • Use grey throw and dark grey, pale grey, yellow and orange/red/yellow/grey cushions to bring together the sofa and feature wall and add warm colours

  • Stack logs into the fireplace to add texture and interest

  • Add a dimmer switch as the main lights were very bright

  • Add a stubby floor uplighter behind the tub chair to use with candles and table lamp for an intimate feel
