Ian and Lizé-marie wanted to cre­ate an at­mos­phere rem­i­nis­cent of an old Vic­to­rian boudoir in the main bed­room. “In old palaces like Ver­sailles, the bed­rooms were of­ten re­splen­dent in shades of rich bur­gundy or green – =that’s ex­actly what we wanted but with­out all the gold that they had,” says Lizé-marie with a chuckle.

Green was the log­i­cal choice as the fire­place in the room still boasts the orig­i­nal green tiles. Lizé-marie says it wasn’t dif­fi­cult to choose the per­fect shade: Du­lux Vic­to­rian Sage.
