I played around yesterday with a few concepts for the Barn entrance hall. I think this is my favourite concept. The room is not enormous; it has a flagstone floor and quite a lot of wood; wood beams, a solid oak door and a rather handsome chunky wood staircase. I wanted to avoid the obvious oak country furnishings and instead create something altogether more glamorous.
I think the silver tones are a good antidote to the brown, and the oversized mirror creates quite a statement as well as being practical. I chose this console table because it echos both the curvy French furniture of the master bedroom and the metal touches in the lounge. The coat hooks are a bit ‘hunting lodge’ and the skulls (yes, again!) are just a bit of fun.
It’s good to have something unexpected in an interior scheme, don’t you think?
