Modern house update, Frome

“Annie is an interior designer with a difference. I felt she really understood what I wanted, and incorporated many existing elements in the room that I wanted to keep, but at the same time inspired me to see the potential for transforming it in an exciting way, and all this within a limited budget. Annie listens carefully and also has a gift for tuning in to your way of thinking. She then uses 3D software to bring ideas to life in a way that mood boards just can’t. I highly recommend Annie to anyone looking for a fresh perspective for their home or work space.”

Modern Asian, simple lines balance and harmony

Nicola's home story started in Singapore where she met her husband Steve.  They returned to UK after 6 years with a collection of wonderful ethnic furniture, lamps and accessories collected on their global travels.  They found a modern, spacious house in a perfect setting on the outskirts of Frome.  Nicola asked me to help edit and update her living room furniture and decor, keeping the theme, but giving the room an update.  The focal points of the room were a stone fireplace and a favourite artwork.  It seemed natural to adopt a modern Asian style so that Nicola could show off all her treasures.

The key to modern Asian style is neutral tones, simple lines and natural objects.  So we set about balancing a vibrant green seagrass wallpaper with neutral decor and contemporary seating, carefully editing Nicola's treasures to ensure each piece looked perfect in its own display space.  The most important element in Asian decor is to create a sense of harmony, if your room feels balanced it is more likely you will feel the same.  Lovely project!
