Ashgrove House










Images above and below you may be able to spot the floor in the sun room to the left which we had painted in a green and white stripe. We will be doing some beautiful white cane pieces upholstered in lovely bright fabrics in this area in the New Year.



Here are some photos of a job I finished off this morning for a lovely, lovely client at Ashgrove. The brief was to create an area which was fresh, bright, colourful and family friendly. This is what I created.

Those rugs are awesome! Where did they come from? I love the colour of that couch - especially with the red cushion, looks super comfy.

This is lovely!!!!! Well done!

Sandy said...

Loving this, looks so light and fresh! The perfect spot to relax.

Adore the striped lampshade and the botanical prints on the wall.

And I really love the green foliage print on the cushion.

The glimpse of the green and white stripe floor is intriguing. Can't wait to see what you do in that space.

Love this green color.I have been known to only look at neutral for my designs....well, as the years add on, so do my choices of colors and lately i have been integrating one of my newly favorite color: lime green.

You have created a lovely area.
Green is one of my favourite colours and I think it makes this room really gorgeous and full of light.

Hi Anna,
I have been checking in on your blog for months and I can't believe how much we love the same things. Like you, I own a store, paint and repurpose vintage furniture, love colour, Tricia Guild fabric except I am doing it on the other end of the world in Toronto Canada.I am just launching my blog and have added you to my blogroll. You can check me out on my website at www.janehalldesign.com. My father was born in Sydney Australia, and maybe tats where my love of colour comes from.

Cheers

Hi Anna,

Thank you for creating THE MOST GORGEOUS look for our home. We are absolutely loving all this new colour in our lives. Our home has been completely transformed from drab and dreary to bright and cheery. It's just what I had hoped for - only better!! I absolutely adore all the fabrics and furniture you chose for us and I feel so priviliged that you saved your special vintage lamp bases for us.

Looking forward to completing the sunroom in the New Year - the green and white stripey floor looks utterly amazing!

Thank you!!!

Warm Regards,
Vanessa x.
