This client’s favourite colour is that deep pink/ red colour which is sometimes called magenta, fuschia or raspberry.   They were looking to incorporate this into their study, but had concerns that it might be too much.

Once I had drawn the model and built the bookcases – it became pretty clear that having the bookcases painted in this colourway would work well and my client could see this clearly.  Balanced with the lovely soft grey curtains, Ian Mankin Arran Fabric in dark grey and navys – a wonderful study has been created.
