The master bedroom in this Edwardian mansion block flat was blessed with high ceilings, lovely cornicing and natural light in the morning. However its dingy decor didn’t capture the light well, and the furniture and fittings needed a refresh.
With no structural work needed, we focused on creating a contemporary scheme that reflected the natural light in the morning, and was still cosy at night. Our client originally specified a four poster bed, however with the door to the garden at the foot of the bed, the room couldn’t accommodate four posts well. We designed a ‘two poster’ with a custom furniture company to give the illusion of a four poster bed, and make the most of the space.
The walls were papered with a bold, modern floral pattern in french grey with bronze leaves, which reflected the morning sunlight and co-ordinated with the client’s original artwork from Toulouse. Matching drapes were installed and the room lit with tall smoked glass bedside lamps. At night, a dimmable crystal chandelier added opulence and cast beautiful shadows around the room, picking up the metallics in the wallpaper.
