Maklin & Macrae fully refurbished this Clapham family home, and part of the client brief was to better utilise the front reception room, making this a more adult driven space where they could find peace and entertain guests. The design scheme for this room was inspired by the spirit of a library with the aim of creating a cosy members club feel for after dinner drinks. The right hue of blue enabled us to inject enriched classic tones in the walls and bespoke joinery, offering a sense of calm for a truly relaxed environment. The blue used on the walls is a confident colour with a contemporary edge, and brings a drama to this reception room. The complimentary furnishing fabrics were key with rich velvets and a thick lustrous silk rug specified to bring tactility to the scheme. We took much consideration to selecting the right sofa that framed the bay window, and gave a focal point with soft interesting curves. This grown up space is further defined by the jewellery dressing of a warm Roll & Hill globe pendant light, and metallic flashes of brass in the seating and floor lamps.
