Opulent Show House
This project was part of RTE’s My Showhouse series.
The entrance hall was an unusual shape for the size of the build .
The brief to give it character was created three fold , we used a polished travertine floor ( practical but dramatic), by commissioning the curved panelling and using the octagonal rug , it accentuated the shape of hall but added character to give a beautiful entrance .
I two toned the staircase in cream and walnut to make it recede a little and then adding drama going up with the 6 foot guilted mirror .
Beautiful adult sitting room.
The master bedroom was a large room but due to the window placement , the only suitable wall for the bed , was the sloping ceiling with the velux window .
I was trying to achieve an opulent adult space so to counter balance this feature , I designed the headboard to cover the entire wall, mixing walnut and plush velvet panels. We created curtains on other sloping walls to create that luxurious feel . Plush pile carpet adding accents of red .to create a cosy feel we made mounded panels and I set a textured paper in same .
Family kitchen space with small family room off kitchen.
We ran with a similar theme throughout the house.
