LIVING ROOM - DESIGN, LAYOUT AND FINISHING TOUCHES
This clients living room lacked personality. It provided her with no energy set under several layers of cream. Two dark timber ceiling beams plagued the room, visually enclosing the space and lowering the perceived ceiling height. On a strict budget we needed to work with the existing furniture however she was happy for us to address the layout to allow for more of a conversation zone.
The brief was to address the layout of the living area and introduce colour using existing furnishings. I began with a new floor plan to address the flow of the room and created a focal point with the clients existing wingbacked chair. Other colour inspiration came from the gorgeous gardens surrounding the home which the wallpaper I selected would compliment.
The beams on the original ceiling were painted out white which instantly lifted the ceiling height making the room feel bigger.
A feature wall and new window treatments were added, including sun filter blinds to protect the room from the harsh sun.
Smaller items such as the rug, cushions, side tables and lamps were selected as stronger pops of colour combining the clever use of pastels and brights together.
I am pleased to provide this review for Compose Interiors. My living room was dull, boring and colourless. Debbie Omond understood exactly what I was looking for. With one on one discussion she helped define my vision. She took the time to understand me and my personality. Indeed her expertise and design far out weighed my amateur view. Debbie instinctively knew what would work. She was thoroughly professional, her artistic flair was exciting. She brought colour and excitement to the room. The wall paper, cushions etc have brought in light, and warmth. Debbie interior design took me out of my stick in the mud safe zone into a world of colour and pizazz. Thanks to Compose Interiors for an excellent job. I would not hesitate to recommend Compose Interiors to anyone contemplating engaging a interior designer.
