My clients granted me complete artistic freedom for this space. The room begged for a vibrant splash of color, while the windows called out to be highlighted and celebrated.

My encounter with this preening peacock whilst on vacation in Mexico, sparked this elegant jewel box transformation.

The previous owners' dated colors were replaced with a jewel toned palette of rich teal blues and injections of emerald green, white, creams and gold.  

The walls were originally finished in a dark taupe plaster and made the room feel very oppressive.


To amplify the light from the 22ft tall bay windows as much as possible, we finished the walls in a softer white plaster and highlighted them with gold leaf.  The hints of gold leaf are featured subtly, but add visual interest to the space.

By adding angled custom bevelled mirrored tiles to the feature wall, and refacing the fireplace tile with a modern white mosaic tile, the wall is now a reflective statement art piece, opening the room to the beautiful garden and mountain views.

The rich color palette of teal blues and emerald greens are carried through to the dining room to ensure a cohesive flow throughout the open plan living space.
