COSY COLOURS FOR WINTER WARMTH
I was recently asked to shoot the November cover for House Beautiful magazine http://www.allaboutyou.com/housebeautiful/ with photographer Mark Scott, and couldn't resist using one of my favourite colour combinations of the season to create a cosy and inviting dining room. The wall colour Brassica from Farrow & Ball http://www.farrow-ball.com is a confident and perhaps unusual choice for a dining room with its rich purple/brown tones but is the perfect contrast to the rich indigo blues in the scheme from the lovely handcrafted ceramics from David Mellor http://www.davidmellordesign.com to the eye-catching patterned rug from Barker & Stonehouse. www.barkerandstonehouse.co.uk. Team with a mix of industrial furniture for an informal practical feel - pair a large scale table http://www.johnlewis.com with a mix of chairs from Barker & Stonehouse -
This room recipe requires the final finishing touches, hot soup, crusty bread and some juicy reading material to escape from this dull and rainy October day..
