As an end to the lockdown is almost in sight and summer is upon us, I wanted to talk about the powerful combination of greens and blues. This combination always feels refreshing and calm at the same time. It is like a garden after a storm, when the sun is out again.
Apartment 6 at One Denman Place evokes precisely this feeling. The serene blue feels fresh and alive with the zingy touches of green. In the living room, the walls are made up in a deep blue linen by Osborne and Little.
The bird collages hanging above the sofa add a romantic touch of curiosity, while the unexpected touches of green lift up the scheme and make the room richer.
The geometric pattern on the wing armchair is ‘Juhu’ by Seemakrish, named after the famous beaches in the suburban neighbourhood of West Bombay. The curvaceous yet geometric design created an interesting contrast against tailored stripe on the William IV armchairs. The light furniture in the seating area makes the space look bright and light.
We added a dark mahogany antique dining table to add depth to the scheme. I love the combination of light and dark timber, creating a modern yet classic feel. This makes the space interesting and dynamic.
The bedroom feels connected with the living room in a very subtle way. The lighter greens, with a beige undertone work perfectly to create a relaxing atmosphere.
We have used my wallpaper ‘Inside Out’ on the walls and an inspiring fabric by Tigger Hall on the headboard. The medallions combined with the headboard shape create movement and add a soft, romantic feel to the scheme.
