The brief: Transform a huge garden room into the ultimate party room with a bar, dance floor, games tables and home cinema.

What a wonderful project to work on! The first thing to address was the layout, since the room had to perform three functions and be flexible enough to adapt for large parties – whether for our clients or their teenage children.

The TV and ceiling projector were already in place, allocating one third of the overall area to the home cinema experience. A further third became the bar and dance floor, and the remaining third housed the games tables. The very large bay lent itself perfectly to a pair of feature chairs from Julian Chichester which we covered in an olive green velvet, to create a lovely place to read during the day or enjoy a drink from the bar in the evening.

The focus on entering the room is the bespoke hemispherical bar trimmed with brushed brass and topped with antique mirror, which ensures the wow factor. To complement the bar and complete this area we sourced a fabulous bright orange leather from Kravet to upholster six bar chairs.

Beautiful double-sided curtains made from an Osborne & Little graphic patterned silk divide the room. When they are closed, the vibrant orange velvet on the reverse creates the true cinema experience. In this part of the room we went to town with custom-made cushions on a huge sofa, ottomans in metallic hide and luxurious cream leather and brass chairs. A dark ceiling, specialist lighting system and glitter balls completed the scheme. And all finished just in time for a Christmas party for 100 guests!
