The Garden House Project

January 2016

This project was very enjoyable and allowed us to be very creative with colours, textures, shapes and patterns, using a range of fabrics were used from Harlequin, and Scion to Vanderhurd.  Alongside our designer friend, Cathryn of Cornish Interiors, we a installed range of window dressings, soft furnishings, curtain poles, an upholstered headboard and ottoman to create a bedroom hideaway inspired by the clients favourite designer Kit Kemp:

Curtains – triple pleat, lined and interlined full length curtain in a Scion fabric, which were installed on a Byron & Byron Raphael Burnt Oak wooden curtain pole.  En suite – roman blinds were fitted and designed to dress the en suite windows only, as the clients wanted sheer rollers as their main dressing in this space, which we also installed.  Upholstery – with Cathryn’s designs, our workshop created two beautiful bespoke pieces of furniture for The Garden House; an ottoman and headboard.  The latter was a real statement piece that added a focal point in the room and was finished perfectly with brushed silver studs all along the edge of the headboard.  The ottoman, made to measure, meeting the clients specifications in size and style.  We used a stunning Harlequin crocheted fabric to upholster it and think the result was perfect! Valance – The Linwood range, Madura II, was used as the main fabric on the valance and we utilised the leftover Vanderhurd fabric from the cushions to create a vibrant kick pleat in each corner.  Cushions – the finishing touch! Contrasting fabric was carefully selected to complete the Kit Kemp look – our favourite item in this project was the neon yellow scatter cushion, with hot pink Harlequin trim, which completely encompasses the whole design.
