A very big house in the country

We asked Holly Allman-Lopez of Ambience Venue Styling Bath (www.ambiencevenuestyling.com) for her advice on styling a country manor venue without overpowering it. Read on to discover her top tips.

Georgian and Palladian interiors work well with pastel tones, while Tudor or Victorian styles suit richer, darker hues. If in doubt, going neutral is a safe bet for a timeless look. White, ivory and cream work well in any setting and can complement or tone down a dramatic interior.
Metallics. Think about your accent colours and metallics. If the room has gold chandeliers and elaborate Rococo mirrors, then golds would work best in your styling. If your room houses an amazing silver collection, then take your cue from that.

Simplicity. As country house interiors are often opulent, with portraits, mirrors and decorative objects, consider simple styling that will enhance this. Perhaps draw focus to an incredible feature fireplace with a foliage or floral display as well as flickering candles in the hearth. 

Luxury. This style of venue is all about luxury, so consider draped chiffon chair sashes, full tablescapes and glass charger plates to enhance the sense of grandeur and elegance.
