Quite a number of the people I work with are men and this client wanted a calm, neutral look that wasn’t bland. We chose an earthy palette of stone, gold, brown and french blue with lots of texture in the wallpaper, fabric and flooring finishes to add interest and a natural feel to the space. The bedroom wallpaper from Brian Yates had a beautiful pattern reminiscent of rain water on a window pane infused with metallic flashes that caught the eye in much the same way that real water droplets do. Using deeper shades of the neutrals gave the look punch and drama in a confident, un self-conscious fashion. Perfect for the modern man about town.
