Interior Scheme Ideas – Boeme’s Musella
Introducing mood boards from Boeme to showcase their new range of sumptuous velvets. They speak for themselves, but we’re delving a bit deeper and offering you some colour suggestions for various decorating schemes.
Musella has a whiff of South Sea Islands about it with it’s swaying dark green palms straight out of the Jungle and the exotic flowers reminiscent of Frangipani – Jo, it’s creator, probably thought of something completely different when designing it, but that’s what it conjures up for me.
Above is a scheme we have used for a client who had a south facing cottage dining room, so lot’s of light flooding through three French windows but handicapped by a low beamed ceiling which slightly overpowered the room. The floor was a natural stone with a slightly greenish tinge and the 2 metre long reclaimed oak table was the centrepiece. We opted for Pure and Original chalk paint which is deeply pigmented so therefore absorbs the light beautifully and is perfect for old, uneven walls. We painted the whole ceiling, including the beams in Sea Foam, the walls, skirtings and door surrounds in Silverplate, with the exception of the wall around the fireplace on one of the short walls which we highlighted in Moonstone.
For the benches, carvers and the chairs we used different shades of linens to pull out all the colours from the Musella, mixing both pattern and plain and with the client’s natural skills at dressing the room it has become a lighthearted family space by day and a moody sanctuary by night once the fire and the candles are lit.
A good substitue for Moonstone in this scheme would have been Atria, as seen below, but we felt the Moonstone dealt better with the floor than Atria, so we used the latter colour within the accessorising fabrics.
