No one knows how to bring a bit of va va voom into a room like Georgina Jenkins, founder and chief designer at House of Interiors. Here she shares her tricks of the trade...
We all need a bit of colour in our lives, now probably more than ever, and it’s amazing what impact just a small pop can have on a room. Take these bright yellow velvet, scallop-style Cecko Chairs, which are accompanied here with a funky monochrome, abstract rug, with the chairs’ distinctive hue bringing an added layer of character and style to an already uber lux room, effortlessly turning the sophistication dial up to the next level.
Illusions of grandeur
Put your art, ornaments and even flowers on a pedestal, with the clever use of columns, like these stunning Twiggy designs. Use them idividually or arrange in a combination of different heights, these are statement pieces that add an impressive splendour to any room. And remember, when it comes to furniture, the devil is always in the detail, with the twist in the leg adding further glamour and elegance.
On the entire wall, and any other surface for that matter, as it’s a sure fire way to create an alluring, sculptural effect and provide the ultimate ‘insta-worthy’ backdrop. What’s more, mirrors help to open up an area and pull light into a room. The possibilities are endless when using reflective glass to decorate interiors and exteriors for that matter, and there is always room to push the envelope and be just that bit more daring and bold.
That sinking feeling
An over-sized sofa can be a thing of great beauty, as is this Maximus design, shown here. A bespoke piece that’s intricately made and measured to work perfectly in your chosen space, the sofa makes a big style statement while adding symmetry to the room. Partnered here with a large Chesterfield Button Footstall, and the comfortable, sumptuousness of the look is complete.
Lights, camera, action
Nothing screams unbridled luxury more than a cinema room, which is becoming an increasingly popular addition to all the best homes and is more accessible than you may think. You can convert any room into your very own high-end movie theatre, no matter how big or small, and it makes the perfect place for the whole family to get together and enjoy a good film. Here, however, we’ve converted the ordinary into the extraordinary with purpose-built cinema sofas and upholstered, padded walls.
Never underestimate the power of a stunning coffee table to seal the style of your living room. Here the unexpected edgy, art deco design immediately attracts the eye, making it a focal point, but further inspection reveals the more subtle art deco curves of the bespoke sofa that oozes luxury while adding warmth. It’s an unusual pairing that works brilliantly to create a style that’s sophisticated, but with a touch of the avant-garde.
