Dream offices

GUEST ROOM STUDY BY MADDUX CREATIVE Interior designer Scott Maddux put together this eclectic area using vintage furniture and flea-market finds

1. This is a home-working area in a guest bedroom in Islington, London. The house is north-facing, so we had to energise much of it with colour, while this room is on the top floor and benefits from enough natural light.

2. We gave this area a rather exotic, tropical theme. The focal point is the 1960s Danish rosewood desk, which the wife bought as a present for her husband. It is offset by textured walls of split bamboo on grasscloth. We found an Audoux-Minet pendant made of rope and string, not shown, in Paris. Much of the rest was done on a budget. The chair is from a vintage store and adds a pop of colour.

3. The clients are well-travelled, have diverse cultural influences and have amassed a number of interesting objects that they like to have around. The simple floating box shelving system is ideal – it was made for the project. I also love to use clip-on Anglepoise lamps for libraries; we found these at Kempton Market.
