September was a month of new beginnings within the Atelier as a compete refurbishment and restyle of our Design Studio, Sampling Library and Salon Showroom got underway.
The project was coordinated by Lisa Trainer, our industry friend, all round ray of sunshine and the talented designer behind Red Door Interiors. Working closely with our team and coordinating a skilled array of local tradesmen - each masters of their own respective craft - within the space of a few short weeks and all at socially acceptable proximity, our haven was transformed with serene and sassy results.
Combining a sequence of clever storage solutions peppered with neutral furnishings to compliment Iona's signature quirky treasures and artefacts, the three main rooms, now known as The Salon, Sample Library and Design Studio, are intentionally diverse yet harmonious in their unity.
The Design Studio
The Sample Library
Our dark and decadent new entrance hall, a definite statement statement space, showcases of our new Perceptions collection through the pairing of a dreamy Forest Whispers wall mural and interchangeable Beauty and Reflections drapery. The brand's signature whimsicality and charm connect each room alongside the dramatic colour palette. Period features within the townhouse Atelier have been dealt a contemporary hand which encourage the eye to wander from cornice to cascade of fabric and from statement artwork to custom upholstery.
