Romantic English Country-inspired Sitting Room Featuring a Blue Velvet Chair, Golden Cocktail Table, Landscape Painting, Lantern and a White Rug
A romantic English country-inspired sitting area features a dramatic blue velvet chair, golden cocktail table, landscape panting, a lantern, paneling, a white rug and a vase of flowers. The room is designed by Susan Ferrier; the architect is Bobby McAlpine. The room is featured in “Poetry of Place: The New Architecture and Interiors of McAlpine."
Library lights spotlight object art and beloved books in the family room while a marble fireplace offers the perfect excuse to sit and relax. Cool blue tones flow from the piece above the mantle, inspiring this laid-back palette.
This is a space where the client goes to sit and read to her youngest son, curl up in a chair near the fire or have guests over for a glass of wine. The room was designed to feel approachable and comfortable, but luxurious and playful.
The walls in this Venetian-style bedroom are painted misty blue "Borrowed Light" from Farrow & Ball, which complements the chartreuse Scalamandre silk curtains. The original oak floors are left uncovered.
The playroom has a decidedly sassy feel with bold graphic patterns and wide horizontal stripes sweeping across the back wall. A thin dark blue stripe outlines the larger turquoise ones, an unusual move that ties in with the denim blue sectional.
A boutique-inspired dressing room, complete with a plush chaise lounge, dressing table and chest of drawers is the perfect place start the day. “It’s something more than you would expect in regular homes, something a little more luxurious and special,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
Blue Sitting Room With Bright and Colorful Pillows, Coffee Table and Rug
A hot pink rug, multi-colored striped coffee table and vibrant throw pillows immediately grab the eye against the blue walls and navy sofa in this sitting room. Natural light from the french doors catches the mix of colors and bounces off the reflective finish of the table lamps.
