One of the many projects that we undertook this summer was the furbishing of two different rooms in a family home, situated in Thurston Rise, Coleford. The new build is part of a housing development that was completed recently on Staunton Road. A contemporary lounge and master bedroom were designed, featuring geometric prints and a contrasting colour scheme.

The design of the lounge was clean and simple, paired with bright furniture to add a pop of colour. The blind showcased this perfectly, as we added a blue patterned braid from Osborne & Little to contrast the pleat curtains that were supplied by Romo Fabrics. The neutral colour on the walls, accompanied by printed featured wallpaper, allowed us to introduce many colour combinations. The customer supplied a bright yellow chair from DFS, and we added a grey TV unit to contrast. The room was completed with a Villa Nova rug to add some texture to the homely design.

The master bedroom featured a more neutral colour scheme, with a teal wallpaper that emphasised the various patterns used for the headboard and blinds, including a dandelion print that channelled the Forest of Dean. This created more of a relaxed but modern feel, perfect for a bedroom. It matched the lounge perfectly, through the grey cushions and the touch of blue in the printed headboard, tying the overall house together.

This family home was a fun project to work on. The clean and simple walls allowed us to play with geometric prints and patterns, creating a contrasting design that was contemporary with a homely atmosphere.
