Brief To provide a mature yet welcoming room to entertain guests
The bachelor pad was devoid of any ambiance or warmth, so it was key to re-inject some welcoming life into what was essentially the entry of the home. Vintage timber screens were located near the right of the entry to assist in making the room feel less like a thoroughfare. The screen also served as a secondary privacy skin to the front window which faced the street. We paired this with a custom tartan print on linen. Simple moulding details were installed to provide a decorative touch to the otherwise plain walls and painted a rich deep blue to help enlarge the small space. Tapered paint details in darker tones to the walls were applied to the existing fireplace to suggest a roaring fireplace and elongate ceiling heights. Side chairs were selected for their sculptural shape which complemented details found in the chrome side lamp and warm timbers of the fireplace and existing timber floors.
