Edinburgh Town House
The picture, which was a wedding present, was the starting point for the colours in the upstairs sitting room. “I wanted to keep it soft and gentle in here, but bring in a bit of life with the colours,” Lally says.As in the downstairs living room, the whole fireplace had to be replaced. “That end of the room was raised six inches to level it,” Lally says. “We had to restore all of the shutters, and the door on the linen press by the fireplace had to be shortened, but luckily the panelling still worked ok.”The floral couch is a sofa-bed, so the couple can accommodate extra guests if they need to.Walls painted in Ammonite, Farrow & Ball. Rug, Francesca Gentilli. Sofa-bed;raspberry armchair, both David Seyfried. Floor lamp, Vaughan Designs.
