Making space work
This room was exceptionally long with a fireplace opposite the entrance and the clients were having difficulty making the space work in terms of layout and design. They had a young family but had a separate play area for the children so wanted this to be an adult space for relaxing and entertaining.
A contemporary space
The brief was to help with the redesign of this space and to provide a layout that worked for the room. The clients wanted a light and airy room with a contemporary feel using soft, muted shades.
We opted for a neutral theme here, using a mushroom and off white colour scheme to keep the space light and neutral but with some added texture to bring out some depth to the design. We also incorporated a seperate reading area to make use of the extra length in the room with some lovely teal chairs, adding a pop of colour to the space.
The room is painted in off-white with a mushroom coloured textured wallpaper for the feature wall. The curtains and blinds were bespoke-made in a darker mushroom with an embroidered sliver pattern, adding a different texture to the room. The sofa is in a soft grey velvet and the added furniture pieces are metal and marble, again adding different textures to the design. The bookcases were the clients own and the design very much complements the dark wood here.
The finished design offers a contemporary space the clients were looking for with a separate reading area adding in a teal accent colour to the scheme. A relaxing, textural style in a contemporary finish.
What our customers say
“Ditton Interiors came to our aid earlier this year when we were in the middle of an extensive rebuild and feeling rather overwhelmed by the whole process. Sandra was excellent at listening to what we wanted and coming up with some brilliant ideas for our rooms. She was always at the end of the phone for any advice needed and happy to meet up to source items etc. Would not hesitate to recommend her services.”

“I can’t recommend Ditton Interiors more highly. Sandra’s ideas were all amazing and exactly as we wanted. Our rooms look beautiful and we still can’t believe how perfect they are! Sandra also goes above and beyond to make sure everything is finished to an exceptional standard. She has a super calm and professional manner which makes the whole experience enjoyable and incredibly easy.”
“Ditton Interiors did a fantastic job at helping us re-design our lounge. The shape of the room and positioning of radiators, tv and furniture was not allowing us to get the best of the room. Sandra help us see how by switching the position of certain items in the room we could maximise the space. She helped us create the perfect adult television and relaxing space. We’re both so happy with the result. We will definitely be asking her back.”
“Sandra has a wonderful eye for colour. She has transformed the entire downstairs of our house, while keeping much of our existing furniture. She has a fund of knowledge and expertise in sourcing materials and craftsmen which saved us time and money. It has been a pleasure to work with Ditton Interiors.”
