The room also presented a unique floor layout – it was divided in half, through the middle of the floor, with half covered in a stunning herringbone wooden floor and the other half carpeted. As you can imagine, this presented a dilemma in terms of the layout of furniture and how to use both sides effectively without overcrowding the room. The room also had a stunning fireplace that was located in one corner of the room. I found this unique layout of the flooring a lovely quirky characteristic of the room and we decided to retain the polarizing floor/carpet division and used it to highlight various corners of this spacious room. We decided to make three distinct conversation units in the room to allow for large parties and gatherings to sit and stand and mingle - without ever taking away from that gorgeous view beyond. The colour was brought in strategically while retaining the lightness of the room. We used several art pieces to fill the multiple large walls. On one side, we have grounded the elegant grey sofas with a large lotus triptych that I have had my eye on for a while! On the other side, we added a custom hand-painted chinoiserie-inspired painting to sit atop the bar sideboard. In between, we used a beautifully textured clay art piece to highlight the fireplace. A gorgeous console, various floor and table lamps, textured ottomans and elegant coffee tables work together to create a truly welcoming formal living space – that is elegant and welcoming but always retains a light and airy feel. The clients and I are over the moon with the results and we hope you enjoy them too!
