A House for a Party by Spaces Designed

Maybe you can imagine the brief – “lose the table tennis table, replace it with a drum sett and, I’d rather like this giant ornamental horse in the corner.” Now we don’t know if that was what the client actually said, but we do know he asked Spaces Designed to turn an ordinary house, with a traditional aesthetic, into a cool yet eccentric lounge that compliments his art collection and serves as the perfect backdrop for a soiree. As ever, with Spaces Designed, there are many more excellent pictures to follow.

To meet the challenge that they had accepted, without making structural changes, Spaces Designed used various paint treatments applied to the ceilings, walls, and fireplace for added interest and glamour.  Long sleek sofas in easy-to-maintain platinum leather and accompanying red leather accent chairs provide ample seating in high style for party guests.  Two large upholstered ottomans in stylized houndstooth serve as additional seating and add a funky element to the room.  The furniture can be easily moved to the perimeter of the room to reveal a commercial-grade carpet tile inlay ideal for a dance party.  A spectacular glass bubble chandelier acts as both a focal art piece and a means to reflect light around the space.  A dramatic beaded chain drape separates the main room from a movie room, of course, complete with theater seating and light-up movie poster frames.  The lively color scheme is continued into the kitchen where the existing cabinets got a make-over with a bold red finish.  Large, rectangular, metallic floor tiles visually expand the space and add a modern touch.

In the powder room, floor to ceiling iridescent glass tiles in a red blend coupled with vivid red walls create a bright and dynamic space.  The iridescence of the tile is amplified by a large back lit mirror.  A floating vanity with glass cutout doors visually expands the small space and shows more of the stunning metallic tile floors.

We’re admittedly not the biggest friends of refinished cabinetry but we’ll stop there because this one simply works, nor is it just a simple “oh let’s just paint the cupboards” deal. Spaces Designed moved the dated wall ovens out of the picture, by swapping the cook top for a range with Microwave above, leaving the former wall oven cavity as a newly clad storage cabinet. And the color? Love the red. Love it.

This before & after made us smile , just because the ‘before’ really should be framed or sent to the Moggit Girls. Was there ever a time for that? And then the ‘wow’ factor of the ‘after’. Still, that incredible red paired with an Asian inspired vanity, fun yet subtle tile mosaic and a simple backlit mirror. Pleasure.

    Hi Komal, thanks for commenting. I’m really curious about the colors you’ve used. For the kitchen cabinetry and powder room walls, what are they?
    As I said in the blog, I don’t often encourage repainting the cabinets but this look really works!

    The client is really fond of the reds and blue’s. And that is also a reason ..we different shades of reds!! The quality of these cabinets is really excellent, so the client did not want to part with it. A great faux finisher we with was hired to paint the wall stripes, create the ceiling treatment and paint these cabinets. He has done a pretty good job.
