Peacock Blue Living Room

Bold lacquered walls set a dramatic tone.

In designer Colette van den Thillart's London home, a custom-made amoeba-shaped table with a dragged gesso finish complements the sofa and chairs, and accommodates the seating arrangement. "I'm a devotee to organic shapes. They can be more forgiving in space planning," she says. An affordable rug adds bold pattern to the room.
