To transform the sitting room working with existing features such as the stone fireplace, Elephants Breath décor and oatmeal coloured carpet which is soon-to-be installed. The main purpose of the interior will be a place to retire to in the evening for relaxing, reading, listening to music, watching TV and occasionally for entertaining. The overall look should be opulent and timeless but with contemporary hints to suit this new build home; brighter colours could be incorporated through furnishings and accessories. The central light fitting should remain and additional lighting such as lamps should tie in with this. There should be seating for 4-6 people but the room should still appear spacious and not over-crowded. An over-mantle, arched mirror should be chosen for over the fireplace.
The concept for this design is timeless and classic with hints of both traditional and contemporary design. A contemporary, on-trend colour scheme of washed-out blues and rust/ brick reds has been chosen. This will be complimented with bold contrasting mustards, golds and navy blues. The concept will create an opulent and luxury design with an overall relaxing atmosphere.
