Our Homes - Get The Look #3

Posted by Michelle Nugent on

Sorry for the delay in getting this post published. We've been busy unpacking, photographing and pricing brand new stock for the changing season. The eagle-eyed will already have spotted some of our Christmas range sneaking onto the website.

If you have been into the shop lately, you'll have seen we've painted an area of the shop in Farrow and Ball's Downpipe. We did this using leftover paint from Sarah's house, although we're quite surprised there was any paint left because Sarah is a super-fan of this colour!

Downpipe adds depth, drama and presence yet is still remarkably effective as a neutral colour - albeit a dark neutral.

It camouflages a dark, wall-mounted TV and enhances artwork and photographs, it works brilliantly with wood and pretty much any colour you can think of.

Sarah's Kitchen
Sarah's kitchen has a contemporary feel, with clean-lined units from Howdens, to which she has added classic touches like the limestone floor and the modern-rustic kitchen table made from reclaimed scaffold boards.

The abundant use of sheepskins and decorative touches like the faux flowers and basketware soften the space and stop it appearing cold.

Home Office Workspace
Sarah's home office workspace is separated slightly from the main kitchen area by the soon-to-be woodburner alcove and as such could take a different paint colour. Here Sarah has used Dulux's colour of the year, Denim Drift. This is more blue toned than Downpipe but still forms a striking backdrop.

Sarah's downstairs loo and shower room continues the dark and stormy theme but this time on the tongue and groove. It looks stunning paired with the marble splash back and the patterned floor tiles. A hint of wood in the form of the oak shelf adds warmth to the space.
