This is a space to listen to music with friends, serving gin cocktails or setting in for a cosy movie night with the curtains drawn for maximum cinema vibes.
We designed an eclectic mix of scandi references along with the beloved 'Cottage-core' movement, adding our signature use of colour to enliven the scheme and vintage pieces to give it a strong foundation.

Quote of the ep
The room needed a lot of love...
Lots of technology but not a lot of love...yet
So much fun was had on this one with the team...
To say we had a giggle with these lovely ladies is an understatement!
We even created a stitch circle to get the craft vibes of the cottage core inspiration flowing...although Anna did not have the patience for the embroidery (she loved it really).
We all had a go at some punchneedle art work for the wall above the newly designed gin bar area. We had done some trials beforehand in our studio. Practice makes perfect...almost. But the key was having a go and trying a new creative pursuit together.
The lampshade craft moment may have got a little messy at first, but there was method in the madness (as always) and the end result was so cute.
We had some time to stroll the pebble beach in between craft moments. The pebbles did not agree with LLB's Cuban heels.
But it was lovely to have a breather together and prepare to get back to it with so many 'makes' to finish on this design.
Next up was adding some 2LG style detail to the vintage armchairs using some yarn and some waterbased neon fabric ink
We put all our love into this room and loved the final result.
The coffee table was made from ash and 3 recycled glass bottles as legs. Not one for a family space perhaps, but perfect for this grown up space.
All smiles at the end!
It takes so much energy and passion from everyone involved to make these spaces the best they can be and we couldn’t be prouder.
Tibby executed our designs beautifully, Martin did his usual magic with the tiling on the fireplace and Terry smashed the wall of tongue in groove storage. Not to mention the beautiful paint work by Steph and Emma (stars) and the unstoppable energy and ingenuity of Agnes on the electrics.
Not only is changing rooms back, but lime green may be our new old favourite too.
