One of my favourite living room soft furnishing schemes

Updated: Jan 4, 2021

I thought I would give you a little look behind the scenes with a spotlight on one of my favourite projects over the last year. This was for a sitting room in a beautiful house in Chiddingfold, Surrey, which included a bay window, side window and another large window.

My client had chosen a stunning paint scheme with two Farrow & Ball accent walls in Stiffkey blue complimented with two neutral walls. The brief was to find a fabric scheme that would bring the two together and also add pattern, contrast and light to the room.

I met my client in her home and we went through lots of fabric samples together. For two of the windows we chose a Clarke & Clarke Brennen fabric in navy, the pattern made such a statement against the wall colour which I absolutely loved.

For the far end of the room is a large window and the client wanted a pair of curtains that puddled on the floor to create a relaxed and cosy look. We felt repeating the pattern would be too much, so we chose a grey linen fabric from Romo with a contrasting leading edge in navy, bringing the two schemes together in a classic and sophisticated way, with a double pleat heading and lovely navy pom poms to finish them.

I was so delighted with the finished look of the room, it looked absolutely stunning. Most importantly the client was delighted too!

"The quality of work and attention to detail was incredible. The pattern on the blind fabric matched in the middle when the blinds were lowered. Absolutely stunning."

Please do get in touch if you would like some advice and guidance on soft furnishings for your home, I would love to help.
