Country House, Haddington

Our clients wanted to create a cosy and comfortable family sitting room. It was important that all five of them could sit in there comfortably together. The décor was to be both cosy and practical and present a fresh approach to the country house look. A large TV was an important feature of the room for the client and the only place for it was above the fireplace. The existing fireplace was too high so was replaced by a slightly lower and more simple limestone design.
The existing lighting in the room was not sufficient or appropriate for the space so we looked at creating a soft spread of mood lighting that highlighted specific areas and gave a more comfortable and relaxed atmosphere to the space. We were keen to keep the traditional features and bring the character back to the room so we replaced the existing white radiators with traditional cast iron ones. A bespoke shelving unit provided some much needed storage in the room and painting it out in the same colour as the walls helped blend it into the overall scheme.
