Cloakroom, Surrey

Cloakrooms are a wonderful room to get to design, because they offer the virtue of a compact, contained space, allowing us to experiment a little; here in Surrey with more colour and pattern than the client would normally be comfortable with. I installed half height tongue and groove panels in Elephant’s Breath to add tradition and depth to the room, plus give a more finished feel to the space.

The fabulous wallpaper is by Dado Atelier and called Suzani, inspired by an antique Suzani textile, its hand-drawn feel lending such character to this downstairs loo. I picked out the pretty light blue of the design to wash the ceiling in a matching Lulworth Blue, also by Farrow & Ball, giving the effect of a summer’s day up above. The curved antique gold mirror over the basin is by Oka and pair of alabaster and brass wall lights, that give a pretty low glow to the room, are from Pooky. The double bench was previously owned by the client, but we reupholstered the seat in Fermoie’s Rabanna and sourced a little antique side table that sits snugly to the left of the basin.
