I recently created a very special master bedroom in a clients early Victorian home in County Dublin.
The room stretches across the width of the house and the huge sash windows look out over the neighbouring houses trickling down towards Dublin Bay.
I thought the way to make the most of this would be to make the view be the star with the use of paint colours. Using the gorgeous new greys from Little Greene we painted the walls in Grey Moss and all the woodwork was subtly brought out with Toad. Both rich dark greys with undertones of green and brown.
The ceiling was painted Down.
I sourced a unique mantlepiece in its raw form – its honey colour set against the warm dark walls is a picture.

The result is a restful place to escape in a busy family home.
