cosy up

Grazia (UK) - - Paly List -

In com­plete con­trast to the open-plan liv­ing space at the back of the house is the front liv­ing room. ‘I wanted a dark, cosy, li­brary feel be­cause it’s a small room and I needed a re­treat from the rest of the house,’ says Caz. She has cre­ated this by paint­ing the walls a very dark green (Ob­sid­ian green paint by lit­tle­greene.com) and the ceil­ing a lus­cious gold (try Ley­land Trade’s spe­cial­ist gold ef­fect semi-gloss metal paint from diy.com). ‘It’s an ex­te­rior paint so it has a sturdy, gloss feel,’ says Caz. The neu­tral colour of the arm­chairs (ebay.co. uk) is lifted by brightly coloured cush­ions. The vin­tage Ma­clamp, de­signed by Ter­ence Con­ran for Habi­tat, was bought on ebay.co.uk. The print is by Bob Mazzer.
