This London Townhouse is another project in the Dunning & Everard portfolio. It’s another warm and welcoming family home that incorporates existing art into a scheme full of colour, textures and subtle patterns. In fact the sitting room colour scheme was entirely inspired by the fishing harbour oil painting bought by the owners several decades ago. The result is a delightful room full of a mix of stunning golds and blue hues. Enveloping and cosy, it’s a room in which to relax with the family and entertain guests. There’s no shortage of interesting objects to look at and a huge ottoman to put your feet up on. That’s what I call inviting.
Take a Look
Farrow & Ball’s Oval Room Blue forms a perfect background in this room, while a pair of OKA mirrored shelves sit neatly within the alcoves. The footstool is covered in Brunel Fox leather from Crest Leather.
Monkey Bean fabric in Ash by Ardmore Design, has been used to upholster a pair of armchairs. Symmetrically placed either side of a gold and glass table, they perfectly compliment the artwork behind. As does the opulent gold sideboard.
The curtain fabric is Wild Thing in Copper Cobalt from Lewis & Wood, the lamps are from OKA, while the sofas are bespoke designs created by Dunning & Everard with cushions from Inky Velvet.
The open-plan kitchen/diningroom/family room is altogether lighter and brighter but still continues with the theme of warm colours in the accessories. Cushions, upholstered chairs and light fittings provide rich accents against a calmer background colour. This is no doubt the ‘day room’ where a view over the garden encourages inside/outside living when the weather allows.
I’m fairly certain that the painting above the sofa helped to inspire the colour scheme in the family room too.
The bedrooms are equally welcoming with subtle patterned wallpaper and tall upholstered headboards in dark grey. Continuity in these room is provided by gold or mirrored furniture as used elsewhere in the house.
