Zambian Guesthouse Reception

The brief

Spruce Interiors Light Package was purchased for R1200. The client requested a design concept for their reception area. They wanted it to ensure there was a cohesive flow from the reception through to the 20 guest rooms, which have a grey, navy and white colour scheme. They had a budget of R7000, excluding recovering the existing furniture.

Cover one sofa in chartreuse, adding scatters as suggested in the moodboard
Place a sofa beneath the window with an angled occasional on either side
Drop 3 pendants in place of the existing light
Replace the lamp shade with a larger one, including a pattern interior fabric and plain on the exterior
Add a lamp to reception counter
Retain the Africa feel created by some existing accessories and add in belly baskets and greenery
Add a landscape mirror above the one sofa
