We are fortunate to work with amazing properties and often a luxurious decorating style works equally well by way of contrast in a modern home as in a traditional one.
Go for glamour and style and sumptuous velvets that emphasise the deep buttoning of a Chesterfield style sofa. Long simple headed drapes in today's modern tapestry fabrics evoke a country house feel with cherry wood furniture given a contemporary twist with distressed and painted finishes.
Complete the look by using a pop of colour with statement cushions and sumptuous trimmings. Add to the dramatic effect by keeping accessories sparse but bold - and a statement mirror will transform a room.
