THE LIV­ING ROOM

I’m not a fan of open-plan rooms so I kept the liv­ing room and kitchen sep­a­rate. The colours of the tiles in the fire­place pick out ac­cents in the room. The fur­nish­ings are a mix of tex­tures, while mid-cen­tury-style pieces, such as the Barker & Stone­house lounge chair and foot­stool, are sym­pa­thetic to the pe­riod of the house and look slick and stylish, but are still re­ally com­fort­able. The Frame TV from Sam­sung above the man­tel­piece clev­erly dis­guises it­self as a piece of artwork. The walls are painted in Du­lux Taupe 3 and the noise-re­duc­tion win­dows are from Hugo Carter.

My first thought was, how are we go­ing to keep this room tidy? Where will all my clut­ter go? But I loved how clean and open it felt and couldn’t get over the cur­tains from Hil­larys – they were pink and pleated! How did he choose those?
