Blackheath Living Room
Contemporary Living Room, Surrey
The brief for this room was for a neutral palette that would retain a sense of warmth and luxury. This was achieved with the use of various shades of grey, accented with fuchsia. The walls are painted an ethereal shade of pale grey, which is contrasted beautifully by the dark grey Venetian polished plaster finish on the chimney breast, which itself is highlighted with a subtle scattering of mica flecks. The floor to ceiling mirrored walls enhance the light from the full height wall of bifolding doors. The large L shaped sofa is upholstered in dark grey wool, which is balanced by bespoke cushions and throw in fuchsia pink wool and lush grey velvet. The armchairs are upholstered in a dark grey velvet which has metallic detailing, echoing the effect of the mica against the dark grey chimney breast finish. The bespoke lampshades pick up the pink accents which are a stunning foil to the distressed silver finish of the lamp bases. The metallic ceramic floor tiles also lend a light reflective quality, enhancing the feeling of light and space. The large abstract painting was commissioned with a brief to continue the grey and fuchsia scheme, and is flanked by a pair of heavily distressed steel wall lights. The dramatic full length curtains are of luscious black velvet. The various accessories and finishes create a wonderful balance of femininity and masculinity.
This is an example of a medium sized contemporary open plan living room in Surrey with white walls, a metal fireplace surround, a wall mounted tv, porcelain flooring, a ribbon fireplace and black floors.
