We created this fun space from a dark windowless room in the centre of the house. We added glazed doors with glazed side-panels to let in some natural light, adding venetian blinds to enable them to be blacked out when watching the TV. Dark grey silk-effect wallpaper and a dark grey carpet were used to embrace the darkness and create a cosy space.
Pops of colour were added by edging the room with quadrant moulding painted with a bright yellow gloss, along with vibrant pictures, colourful cushions and shelving, and a teal ceiling.
A boxed in waste pipe in one corner would have made it impossible to accommodate the 3-metre wide sofa that the homeowners had their hearts set on. So we created a false wall to hide the box and sunk in deep cube shelves in teal gloss (Ikea Kallax) so as not to waste the space behind the false wall. Acrylic mirror was added to the back of the shelves, and lighting was added to each cube to create a great focal point for the room.
