Each designer chosen to exhibit was given a very small space of 2 metres x 2 metres to create a room setting of their choice. It was a challenge to create an interesting room scene with such little space and the trick was to use layers to give visual interest. We chose to do a sitting room inspired by romance. Black embossed wallpaper was the back drop to help set the scene. Richly textured sensuous velvets by Carlucci and Andrew Martin have been used on the daybed and ottoman in a rich port wine colours. An organza sheer curtain half covers the space, so you feel like you are peeking inside into a private space. The artwork of a lady’s face is intriguing and alluring. Little touches like the lingerie flung over the daybed, fun throw rugs, handmade chocolates and champagne complete the setting for a romantic, passionate interlude.
