The Art of Indulgence

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As well as my huge interest in fashion and art, I sometimes dabble in interior design. I’ve always had a massive passion for interiors and love furniture shopping equally as much as buying clothes.

For this project I wanted to change the mood of the room with a bold colour; it previously being a rather bland beige colour, I wanted to make more of a statement. I started with this amazing deep Olive colour from Farrow and Ball and worked around that. The furniture pictured including the beside tables, console and the dressing table were all existing so it was about making them seem fresh and luxurious.

 
The next thing was the custom headboard. We went through countless samples of different colour chenilles to find this amazing shade. We then had it made so it reached the ceiling, adding grandeur to the overall scheme.
For the bed we used fresh white sheets from The White Company as we wanted the bed to look clean and crisp. The buttoned cushions are from Lombok, the throw also from The White Company and the rectangular cushion we had made from the same fabric as the headboard.
I tried to avoid putting too much dark colour on the bed as the walls already made so much of a statement.
The Chandelier is also (I feel like a broken record saying this again) but its from The White Company! But it replaced a dull shade that was hanging there before and really added glamour into the room without being tacky by adding crystals.

 

These little trinkets are things I picked up on my last trip to Santorini. They were really rather inexpensive but they help to layer the room and make it feel more travelled.
