Jewel-bright silks and pared-down sensuality
Banners of shot silk in jewel-bright pink, red and mauve are the only adornment at these elegant French windows.
The rich colours glow with even more intensity with the sunlight shining through them, and bathe the entire room in a soft sensual glow.
The mood is romantic without being over-feminine - indeed the arrangemant is almost minimal; with cooler colours and no cushions an entirely different atmosphere would be created.
The clean lines of the modern daybed are covered in plain lilac boucle wool and all the decorative detail is concentrated in the cushions - exquisite concoctions in embroidered silks, ikat weaves and painterly florals that pick up on the principle colours.
