    Hi Sunil, many thanks for your question. I would recommend you contact a designer in your area as this would take time to design and you would need a technical drawing for your carpenter/joiner/contractor to build this and unfortunately you would need to pay for their services. It shouldn't take more than 2 hours so not a huge investment. If you require an overall design scheme for your reception room, you would need more than 2 hours, but if you're enquiring regarding joinery only then that should be plenty. Regards Rebecca.

11. Be boldPersonality is what makes a space great. Make your own statement and have fun. The more you try, the more you will begin to see what works and what doesn’t. Incorporate unexpected elements for drama. The unconventional ottoman seats, library-style bookshelves and oversize chandelier here are all unexpected in a conventional living room, but the result has charisma. Eschew expected pieces and interpretations if you want a room that will really wow.
