This homeowner has lived in the same small cottage for 18 years, they wanted to modernise and lift the room and they wanted to change some furniture. Key items for replacement were a oversized Antique sofa and a Victorian chair. We injected much needed light into the room by painting the walls in a modern soft warm grey, the cottage has very small windows so we avoided cluttering the windows with heavy drapes . We changed the radiators to tall wall versions creating more space on the wall allowing the chair to be pushed back and we also reduced the depth of the hearth. The carpet was replaced in the same soft concrete colour throughout the whole ground floor to create a feeling of space and flow, we choose a flat luxury pile, which was semi commercial as the client has a dog, so this is easy to maintain.
