"The key to harmonising different shades of the same colour is to keep to the same under tone. In this case, all the greens, from the darkest myrtle on the walls and shutters to the softest olive on the velvet sofa, share an element of yellow. The mustard pulls the look together and gives the room wonderful shaft of sunlight. Add a pop of contrasting colour such as this hot pink."
The elegance of the living room is complemented by an exquisite rococo throne; one of a suite of three in the room. Originally from Europe, the chairs were deaccessioned from a museum in Canada. Sue purchased the chairs from a French antiques dealer and brought in Artisan Restoration to restore the frames and gold leaf. Sue designed the gold metallic hand-embroidered fabric.
