shire family room

colourful beachside living

This spacious living room in Menai was given the star treatment with our Total Makeover package. My clients had more than one living room but this is where they spend most of their time and they wanted this space to feel calm and relaxing and make the most of the views out to the family’s pool.A solution was needed for the orange tones of the existing exposed brick walls, which had a dominating effect on the room.

A refreshing colour palette of greys, greens, and shades of blue was introduced and cooled down the overly warm feeling and to make the most of the brickwork without having to paint it or cover it over. An oversized custom-made rug in a textured mid-grey was the perfect tool to disguise flooring that wasn’t to the clients’ taste (but wasn’t in the scope of works to replace!). It looked great, helped meet the brief and stayed within budget.

Blonde timber furniture and homewares including a coffee table, side table and floor lamp were great neutral options and helped the cool colours of blue and green really pop.

This room receives an abundance of natural light and the ability to control that light was a key consideration for my clients. We installed double layer roller blinds in contrasting light and dark grey – one layer letting in more light than the other – for greater control.
