The design brief for this country style lounge was to brighten up the space.
The stone fireplace had to stay but was making the room feel dark.
By changing the light fittings from 3 single pendants to three 5 arm chandeliers this made the lighting more of a feature and provided much needed light.
The floorboards were painted white as these were in great condition and it was a shame to hide them under carpeting.
Adding cream sofa covers brightened up the room and then by adding mercury glass accessories and a large mirror (which is out of shot) to reflect light around finished off the look.

My decorating planner is great for starting any project, a place to keep all samples and information together.
If you have purchased the Decorating Planner from my website, once printed out you can put the pages into either an A4 ring binder with plastic pockets or a document folder, using the pockets to store samples.
You can also print extra pages off if you need more for certain sections.
It can also be printed off every time you start a new project and will become your go to place to store ideas and inspiration for new projects.
