Cosy living spaces
To create distinct multi-purpose living spaces that felt welcoming and cosy
What we did
Our designs created two distinct sitting areas with different purposes. One for watching TV and entertaining, the other for listning to records and reading. We embraced the fact that the TV area was naturally darker by installing a rust sofa with statement wallpaper and then running a lighter teal colour into the remainder of the room with darker pieces of freestanding furniture. The we gave the records room a lighter feel, bringing the outside in with a green colour pallette.

"We asked Beth and Jon to help us redesign our two living rooms (one of which we rarely used) and, in particular, to bring some colour into our décor as we hadn’t the confidence to move away from neutral shades. From the start we were confident that they were listening to us and getting a good idea of what we liked and what we might consider. They also challenged us to be bolder about some of our choices and were able to put us in contact with a very good builder, suppliers and furniture makers we would never have found ourselves.
It turned out to be a big project but we are delighted with the outcome. Both rooms have their own character and we are now getting the benefit of using both equally. We’ve also had very positive feedback from friends and family about our new look.
We would recommend Beth and Jon. They don’t have pre-conceived ideas about how a home should look and are flexible in their approach but also strong enough to stand by their designs. Overall, we followed their advice, even though we sometimes had misgivings, and we don’t regret that as they were right!"
