During lockdown interior designer Lynlea West completed a design update of her client’s home office in Dulwich and recently has been called back to revive and redesign their under-used living room. The large room with windows at the front and back leads to an open plan contemporary kitchen so the design had to seamlessly fit into the existing scheme. As both of her clients share very different styles and tastes, Lynlea based her design concept around contemporary feminine touches and classic masculine style that would work well together.
The starting point of this project was to choose the wall paint colour as this would contribute dramatically to the overall transformation. The choice of wall paint was to go darker than the existing scheme and in the end everyone fell in love with the richness of Farrow and Ball’s Calke Green.
From there, a subtle brush pink was chosen for a freshly reupholstered Loaf sofa. One of the great results in this project was the expertly executed stone restoration on one of the mantel pieces. It was badly damaged and had a hole in it, but the delicate work of Marble Shine Ltd. brought it back to life.
The chandelier was the most difficult piece to decide on. The clients wanted something truly special. After looking at lots of different options they decided on a fabulous sculptural pendant light called Bolle from Giopato & Coombes, which grounds the space as well as gives it a much needed character. To make this design another success small touches and personality were added through personal objects and art. The clients were thrilled with the result and now the space is fully used by the whole family.
