The client specification for this project was to bring colour and sophistication to a new build whilst most importantly providing privacy. I was able to spend a great deal of time with the client researching a number of fabrics for each of the rooms. By leaving some key samples with the client for a few days, these samples were also able to be seen in a number of different lights.
One particular room was a kitchen-diner with a right angled bay window, French door and small window above the sink. The walls were painted white and the kitchen theme was a simple black and white. The aim was to inject the room with colour using the window dressing.
The final look was achieved by using a combination of fabrics. The Roman blinds were made with Voyage fabric called ‘summer leaf’ which incorporated raised embroidery and in a variety of bold and vibrant colours on a light linen background. By using Roman blinds in the bay area, it meant that the client could have the blinds drawn when desired ensuring privacy whilst maximising space. The French window curtains were made with a contrasting green linen from Romo called Linara which would also help to bring in the colours from the outside garden.
