The brief

Benedetta asked me to design her a study which would double up as an occasional guest bedroom. This former playroom was given a complete makeover. The cupboards were ripped out and replaced with a row of beautiful handleless floor to (vaulted) ceiling units. The room was redecorated, and this stunning bamboo wallpaper has become a feature wall. The beautiful Eero Saarinen marble table (formerly the family dining table) makes a lovely desk where her children also join her to do homework. New carpets, shelves, bedside tables and lamps were added. Keeping the colour scheme to predominately green and white is fresh and gentle and makes this room a lovely convivial space in which to both work and relax.
