What Houzz contributors are saying:
‘The master bedroom, with its many windows and circular turret, was incredibly difficult to furnish,’ Nicola admits. The red sofa came from the old house and is from Designers Guild. ‘My taste is very eclectic,’ she says. ‘I tend to just chuck things together and they seem to work.’ The cobalt blue chandelier came next, and Nicola admits she went ‘quite mad with the light fitting, but fell in love with it. Although it’s dramatic, it works well with the traditional wallpaper.’ It can’t be touched except with gloves on because of leaving fingerprints. The fitting, in common with many in the house, is from David Canepa, designed by Kevin McCloud, and contrasts powerfully with the red. She then tied the blue light fitting, the gold on the walls and the red sofa together with a patterned carpet. ‘I tend to do this,’ she laughs. ‘I fall in love with one piece and then decorate a room around it.’Red sofa, Designers Guild.
