Project Tour: A Whimsical Farmhouse by Tobias Oliver Interiors

Situated in Berkhamsted's sprawling English countryside, a reimagined farmhouse is home to a
treasure trove of unexpected color and personality. From the ever-present use of vibrant velvet piping to statement-making skirt fringe, read on to explore every distinctive detail, tailored by
Tobias Oliver Interiors.

A generous reception hallway connects two spaces where the family of five spends most of their time, the sitting room and conservatory, where TOI strikes the perfect balance between livable and luxurious. 

Complementing the foyer's gold leaf ceiling and metallic finishes, the Equinox Embroidered Border pops against the home's original wood panelling, painted in a striking kingfisher blue.

A curated credenza welcomes you into the elevated sitting room, topped by two table lamps trimmed with the Aria Silk Brush Fringe in Emerald. White walls are given character with the Julienne Double Welting in Marsala, which frames each upholstered panel. 

Green accents are speckled throughout the room, including The Déliat Cut Fringe on each leading edge, and the statement-making Astrid Bullion Fringe that skirts a bespoke octagonal ottoman.

The sectional is wrapped by an Aristotle Greek Key skirt, festooned by coordinating throw pillows with the same border in Oyster and Coral. The Swiss Velvet Piping in Navy is a rich addition of depth on the edge of each pillow and cushion.

 Through double glass doors you'll find a bright and airy sunroom that builds on the green and red palette with a cheery addition of yellow — a fitting transition to the sunfilled garden vista. 

The Swiss Velvet Piping in Moss and Russet create contrast on every upholstered edge, unifying the room's variety of colorful fabrics. The Aurelia Brush Fringe in Loden trims two styles of throw pillows, adding warmth and luster that echos the lush greenery outside.
