When my client approached me, she had plans for a house that she had recently purchased to be converted into her plastic surgery practice. My client wanted something upmarket, inviting and comforting. We designed a feature walI using a paisley wall technique to compliment the fabrics chosen to make the most of the space. We worked on a warm palette to furnish the area: Colonial blended with Japanese touches, contemporary finishes, striking artwork and details to emphasize the stunning height and space of the reception area.
We had intended to add an accent wall incorporating rich patterned wallpaper, but with concerns regarding wear, tear and hygiene I recommended a wall technique instead. By creating a paisley wall design, I was able to match the concept fabrics exactly creating a warm serviceable wall which leads the eye through the room.
We accentuated the double volume ceiling by cladding above the fireplace right to the ceiling. As I was concerned that the height of the cladding and ceiling would dwarf any normally scaled furniture against the wall, I had chairs custom made with extended backs.
The double volume ceiling created a large vacant blank wall above the chairs. For this reason I chose art work which is vertical in format helping to make the most of the expansive space whilst the rough textured canvas accentuated the cladding used above the fireplace and on the bar elevation.
