About the Interior Design job:

A couple had moved into a house together in later life and had very different tastes. SMB Interior Design was called in to try to help them modernise the living room and dining room which they both felt was cold, dark and cluttered. Both wanted to create a feeling of light and warmth. The house appeared dark owing to a significant amount of dark wood furniture and a large, outdated stone effect fireplace. It appeared cluttered as there was too much furniture and overflowing bookshelves. The first step was to declutter - discarding excess furniture and books. Then we covered the fireplace with a new false wall, added a contemporary inset fire and this immediately transformed the room. New carpet, paint colours (on walls, woodwork and the dark wood built in furniture), soft furnishings, light fittings and some new furniture completed the transformation of this lounge and dining room from tired and mismatched to contemporary, light and comfortable.
