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..
