Earlier this month we fitted a full living room scheme, bringing a modern twist to an old barn conversion, but sticking to our client's eclectic tastes. The starting point of the scheme, a bright orange vintage velvet chair, paired with bottle green velvet sofas meant we had to carefully choose a fabric that incorporated the two colours. The Harlequin palm fabric worked perfectly and complemented our client's eclectic taste.
We used a plain orange cotton to pipe the tie backs and create the tabs for the tab top curtains, this worked well and made the curtains look that little more unique, we also brought orange on to the sofas with cushions made in a gorgeous Osborne and Little fabric, which followed through to the centre of the room with a reupholstered footstool. Here at Abfab we are all about sustainability, as we had a little extra fabric left from the curtains we were able to use it in making up x2 extra cushions which could be added to the space. Images can be seen below.
After working on the living room scheme our client called us back to design made-to-measure blinds in their recently renovated hallway space, we brought the tones through with a fabric including the burnt oranges and the greens – Villa Nova Potting shed was the perfect fabric made up in to romans, this also looked fab as the hallway windows looked out on to a beautiful garden filled with wild flowers.
Client comments -
"Ab Fab by name, Ab Fab by nature!
We used Claire and Hetty primarily to help us work out how to refresh our tired living room. They were full of good ideas, having been very good at getting us to focus on our likes and dislikes on colour and style. The palate they came up with for the curtains, blinds, walls and sofas was absolutely us. Beyond that their delivery was excellent: good communication, additional ideas, clarity on timings and pricing (and adroit flexibility and understanding on Sofa delivery timescales when we delayed the process for new carpets). We certainly wouldn't have ended up with the room we really wanted without their help. Easily 5 stars!"
We are currently working on lots more interior schemes which we will be sharing over the next few months, regular updates can also be seen on our Instagram!
