The DARK SIDE Sue indulges her love of the dark, the Orient and multiples, in this stylish town house. “I have always wanted to create a house with dark walls. You have to get the balance right though - go for striking, not gloomy. I’m fascinated by the Orient and I have always loved collecting items from the East. They just add that touch of exotic mystery, every house needs a dash of that.”

“The house is monochromatic but it’s the bursts of colour that really bring it to life.” - Sue Jones “Although the rooms appear very full, every piece has its place. I love symmetry. In this house, I used multiple identical objects and created mini collections throughout; it makes such an impact. It looks like the house of someone who has travelled widely and picked items from all over the world. Almost like a stage set, which I adore - it’s so dramatic.

Colour has played an important role throughout this home. Of course, the walls are predominantly dark aside from the bedroom - but to stop the darkness overpowering, I introduced pops of strong colour.”

T H E DA R K S I D E | D I N I N G R O O M “This house is designed to entertain large numbers so the dining room had to do the same. I used comfortable dining chairs (which can be scattered throughout the house when not needed), a large table (which literally doubles in size), with multiple lamps and vases of faux flowers along the surface. Lighting is vital in this room; it brings it to life. I wanted the dining room to be particularly dramatic, so I used multiples, a large impactful painting on the wall and a few dark oriental pieces. To break up the blackness, I introduced the bright cushions. They just have that bee sting of colour that the room needs.”

“Every bedroom needs to have its own character.” - Sue Jones “When I originally came up with the concept for this home, I knew I wanted to design a bedroom that completely contrasted with the rest of the house. The aim was to create a room that was luxuriously comfortable, whilst still maintaining the stylish elegance that is showcased throughout the rest of the house. The room is predominantly white, with crisp white sheets and a white fabric-covered bed. To bring in an element of interest, I introduced some antique gold, leather and wooden pieces. I wanted the scheme to remain neutral, so I added different textures that would not detract from the soothing environment.”

In this study, Annabel combined a mixture of very comfortable leather and velvet armchairs and sofas. She lined the walls with bookshelves, bursting with interesting and unusual books. She opted for plenty of lighting, which is good for working, reading and creating that warm glow.

5 Tips for Creating the Perfect Study

NEW

• Your desk chair must be sumptously comfortable. • A large desk with storage is preferable. • U se lots of table and floor lamps to light the space. • Books make every room more cosy. • Additional seating is always useful, whether it’s so you can hold external meetings or family discussions.

The Insider’s Guide to... LAMPSHADES OKA’s growing range of plain and patterned shades offer a brilliant way to add drama to a scheme. Country Life Interiors Editor, Giles Kime, offers advice on choosing the right design.

SHAPE • Shades with tapered sides (known as empire) tend to suit classic schemes. Those with straight sides (known as drum shades) have a more contemporary feel. That said, there are no rules.

• Bottle and urn shaped lamps tend to work well with tapered shades and square lamps with straight sided shades. Column

Guest Who? “Comfort is so important in guest rooms – good quality beds, sheets and ample storage is a must. I don’t see why people should come and visit me if they’re not as comfortable as they are in their own home.”

Lucinda’s top tips for preparing a guest room: Bed – It must be sumptuously comfortable. Mirrors – Every guest bedroom should be equipped with a mirror, ideally with a plug nearby so guests can blow-dry their hair. Luggage Rack – If guests are only staying for a couple of days they may not want to unpack, so a luggage rack is perfect. Blankets – Who doesn’t love a blanket on a cold winter’s night? Lighting – Next to the bed in a guest bedroom, you must always have a pile of good books, a bunch of beautiful faux flowers and an excellent lamp.

Ideally every room should have bookshelves, including bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms. Built-in shelves are all very well, but the great thing about ours is you can move them or take them with you. Bookshelves aren’t just for books. I use them to store my glasses, china and objets d’art. AUT UMN / W INTE R DIR EC TO RY STACK Useful wooden shelving units in a silver birch painted finish.

Edward Bulmer

Picks for the Season Edward Bulmer, one of the country’s leading architectural historians and interior designers, has been involved in the restoration and redecoration of numerous historic buildings (including Goodwood, Garrick Club and Theatre Royal). With this experience he created a range of natural paints (no nasty chemicals), which are also historically accurate. Here Edward explains which paint he would match with which OKA piece, to create the perfect colour combination. Pick up an Edward Bulmer colour chart from any OKA store.

3-Seater Sofa A sofa can look quite bulky in a room and one way to relieve this is to have a design that has exposed legs. This handsome piece reduces that bulk and allows you to view the floor beneath. 207x87x82cmH USF065
