Grand Salon

Gilded mouldings and a golden chandelier offer warmth and sparkle.

"This quietly grand interior may seem more classically inspired than some of our other work, and it is," says Nicky Haslam, principal and founder of NH Design. "When it suits the clients' needs it is important to exercise restraint, and yet there are still layers and unexpected furniture placements here if you look closely. Note how the furniture has been split into two separate seating areas, for example. This can be charming, even in smaller living rooms."
