Infuse their heady resonance into a room by drawing upon their colors. Try vivid turmeric and saffron yellows, paprika and cayenne reds, fennel and cardamom greens or dusty nutmeg browns. Spin the globe: The deep orange sets this nook aglow, and the Oriental rug extends the color into the space and helps to establish the global overtones. - karenrosie

This secondary gathering area features a home bar that uses an orange accent wall to set the mood for the space. The custom designed ceiling gives the space a unique character and charm. A circular sofa plays off the rest of the ceiling and adds another piece of interest.
A new layout for the furniture was a challenge because three rooms interlink (kitchen-diner, this room and the TV room). The main requirement was for a good ‘flow’. The couple wanted a flexible space that provided a social area for adults but that also gave the children and their friends plenty of room to play with toys on the floor and play or listen to music.
A diagonal arrangement meant that the seating could be used facing into the room with the artwork as a focal point, or facing out onto the garden. With seating that could be easily moved the arrangement works on several levels.
