Louise Jones has cre­ated a calm scheme for a dress­ing room at a Ge­or­gian house in Wilt­shire

Country Life Every Week - - Interior Design -

The de­signer stud­ied at the Inch­bald School of De­sign, (hav­ing switched from her pre­vi­ous ca­reer in ac­coun­tancy) be­fore spend­ing seven years with Lon­don prac­tice Tod­hunter earle. She left to es­tab­lish her own com­pany, which is now based in Rich­mond. Pre­vi­ous com­mis­sions have in­cluded res­i­den­tial projects in cen­tral Lon­don and a chalet in Ver­bier. She is cur­rently work­ing on the re­fur­bish­ment of a house on the Isle of Jura.

This is the dress­ing room of the mas­ter bed­room of a Ge­or­gian prop­erty near Marl­bor­ough that Louise and her team re­fur­bished to cre­ate a house with a coun­try feel that also of­fers 21st-cen­tury com­fort. The scheme com­bines a pale pal­ette of colours and doors with mir­rored pan­els that were hand-painted by Ster­ling Stu­dios (www.ster­ling-stu­dios.com; 020–8453 9360). The lat­ter cre­ates a wide range of dec­o­ra­tive fin­ishes for walls, fur­ni­ture and cab­i­netry, in­clud­ing eglomise glass, lac­quer and gesso.

Ster­ling Stu­dios also painted the wood­work in a ca­sein paint that has a chalky fin­ish, adding depth and an aged ap­pear­ance. The com­bi­na­tion of the two cre­ates a soft, muted feel.

As with any dress­ing room, light­ing was key and this was de­signed by John Cullen Light­ing (020–7371 9000; www.john­cul­len­light­ing.com). Oak-leaf door pulls are avail­able from Charles ed­wards (www.charlesed­wards.com; 020–7736 7172). The fab­ric on the cush­ion is Sun­flower, which costs £323 per me­tre from Chelsea Tex­tiles (www.chelsea­tex­tiles.com; 020–7584 5544).
