Dynamic Den

Colour creates a cosy, welcoming look in this reading space.

Unexpected lawn-green walls add bold personality to this den. The back panels of the bookshelves are painted a deep aquamarine blue for a dramatic effect. Hits of red, orange and brown add warmth and play off the various wood tones in the room.
