For this scheme, I have tried to lighten the room a little and create a more informal, comfortable look, while still maintaining some continuity through to the adjoining room. By painting the ceiling and fire surround in a warm off-white, the period features of the room havent been compromised, and the custom-designed built-in bookcase offers a practical storage solution.Christine Hudson of Architecture Lab, Wellington, offers this alternative solution:email christine_hudson@xtra.co.nz 65'
