Refreshing this 20 year old medical suite focussed on selecting new wall finishes to complement the carpet and joinery. The existing furniture was a selection of much-loved family heirlooms, which we restored and reupholstered to give a new lease on life. We also came up with a cost-effective solution to refresh the chipped and worn reception counter without needing to completely replace it. It was important to the client for the refurbishment to engender a sense of calm for patients and staff. Colour is a key factor in establishing mood and ambience, and we went for a refined palette featuring emerald, navy blue and tonal neutrals interspersed with natural timber grains and brassy metallic accents. These elements help establish and air of serenity amid the hustle of a busy hospital.
