From bold coloured furnishings to striking patterned wallpaper, this home of an interior designer from Design Intervention doesn’t shy away from dramatic decor. But put all these together and it still manages to come out looking effortlessly elegant and chic.

A checkerboard floor is classic company for the white chesterfield sofas, accented by pops of blood red furnishings.


Black and white stripes are a bold choice for a feature wall. The orange-hued painting makes a perfect pairing with it.


You don’t need walls of real books to make a room look cosy. The Fornasetti wallpaper by Cole & Son does the trick in the study/ guest room.


One way to make a white-themed room (the master bedroom) look interesting – add soft furnishings that sport colourful zig zag stripes!


Sweet turquoise pepped up with highlights of zesty lime green is a refreshing colour scheme for the daughter’s bedroom.


The bright comic-book wallpaper in this bathroom is a sure-fire way to wake one up in the morning.
