Create delightful entertainment spaces and host soirees with ease and grace with these design tips
Whether you’re an avid entertainer or an audiophile, a well-designed interior should have that personalised touch—this can mean incorporating features for your film screenings or designing a home bar. Do plan the layout accordingly so that your entertainment elements work seamlessly with the other aspects of your space, recommends Elliot Barratt, managing director of Elliot James Interiors. “Whether you are creating a cinema or karaoke room, you’d want to have a similar colour palette to the rest of your home,” he says. “Add plush sofas, oversized cushions and ottomans to create a cosy and stylish den.” Thought must also be given to the atmosphere you wish to convey. “Besides achieving this through clever lighting and accent colours, using special finishes for a bespoke design feature is another great way,” says Cameron Woo, founder of Cameron Woo Design. Here are some ways to get your home primed for entertaining and entertainment.
