Project: - Cutlass Court Granville Street, BirminghamProject Summary 1 Bedroom purpose built apartment in the city centre of Birmingham, part furnished. First time let so freshly painted and new flooring and vertical blinds. The Landlord had stipulated no change to the wall colour and no curtain rails to be fitted. Corporate Let to a professional; working Monday – Friday in Birmingham, returning home at the weekends – the apartment serves as a ‘crash pad’. The living area was furnished with a sofa bed, side table, dining table and chairs and TV and stand. The bedroom had a built in wardrobe, double bed, bedside tables and chest of drawers. A few pieces of artwork hung on walls.Project Outcome By utilising an appropriate colour scheme and accessories, I created an environment for living in which was harmonious with the clients home life at weekends and calming and relaxing to come home to after a hard days work. The project was completed in 3 days, and included the planning, shopping and styling. A home from home from the High Street.

open plan living area The dining area of this living space is clearly defined by the change in ceiling light fixtures. The new artwork creates a feature wall with the artwork purposely hung so that each image can be studied on its own rather than a group. The fabric table runner continues the theme from the lounge area unifying the two. The architectural nature of the floor lamp is a reflection of the artwork in the lounge area. The central table arrangement adds height and is anelegant feature evenwhen the table is not laid for a meal.

The mirroring of the artificial flowers from the dining table and the red plant pot from the kitchen reinforce that colour flow in a compact environment. Sensual elements areadded with the pebbles and candles.
