So, you’ve decided to extend your house- great! You made the most of the size of the extension and then you got stuck because you ended up with a rather big space and no idea how to arrange it…
Any space can be arranged in the most efficient way- but sometimes you might need the help of an interior designer. This was why I was asked to help with this pretty expansive living room.
My clients had wanted a large l-shape sofa but I talked them out of that by showing them the option with two sofas- one a three seater and another two-seater. L-shape sofas are great, but not for every space. Having two allows some flexibility and if you ever move a house, they’re probably easier to work with.
I have proposed two ways of creating a TV wall- one a bit more elaborate and another one with a simple TV sideboard.
These images served as my inspiration. Combining an off-shelf unit with a bespoke, reclaimed oak structure built on site to measure.
My clients didn’t know what to do with the ‘rest’ of the available space, so I proposed a small reading/playing corner with two armchairs and a bookshelf- a perfect corner if you don’t want to watch TV. Also, it’s great when you have more people over, then you can bring the chairs around the coffee table.
The feel in the space was meant to be cozy Scandinavian with a subtle scheme built around greys and duck-egg blue hues.
Instead of having a wallpaper on one wall and create a famous or sometimes infamous ‘feature wall’, I proposed to use wallpaper as artwork and frame it. It’s a great idea if you like to have a wallpaper, but don’t want to end it up with it on an odd wall or all four walls.
Looking forward to the living room being completed!
Watch this space!
