When I notice paintings in my clients homes and design interiors based around them, my clients love the results. This painting was one of the first things I noticed when I first entered a home recently. The combination of dark warm carbon, charcoals greys naturals Ivory and ochre tones are extremely North Canterbury. The clients were quite attached to the painting, so I decided immediately that it would be an inspiration to the design. Pure Linens were also a favourite therefore I used several linens in a combination of colours textures weaves and weights for curtains upholstery and cushions. The natural coloured light weight linen for the curtains has a soft crease which will give the curtains a casual look. The sofa will have a dark charcoal tone forming the perfect background for the lighter and ochre linen cushions and the patterned fabric just adds an extra dimension.
