Elegant and modern dining room

The brief

Create a sophisticated environment for casual and formal dining. Work with the existing newly completed décor and integrate the look and feel with the attached kitchen. Be sympathetic to the existing Georgian design features but bring a contemporary, modern twist to the space.


The solution

Having newly moved into this stunning home my client was keen to make the most of the connected kitchen and dining room. The room had been decorated to a high standard by the developer, including a stunning Cole&Son wallpaper mural. My client wanted to give this dining room interior space a more modern and contemporary feel.

My vision for the room was to work with the existing colour palette and mural and complement them with elegant, modern furniture and accessories, using a palette of natural tones, whites, greens, and subtle pinks drawn from the mural.

I chose a beautiful Knoll Saarinen table, with a tulip base in black with a black timber tabletop. Six contemporary armchairs, in a rich dark green fabric with metal swivel bases provide comfortable seating. A stunning pendant light fitting hung in a waterfall effect provides soft light over the table centre and accentuates the high ceilings. A black framed oak sideboard provides useful storage. Sage green curtains in a soft chenille with a micro geometric texture frame the large sash window. A large area rug softens the room and reduces noise.

The room is styled with an oval oak framed mirror, candlesticks, a large log store, dried flowers, contemporary pottery, plants, and modern lamps which provide versatile lighting moods. I sourced contemporary art scenes of Bristol finished with Gold leaf, and framed in black timber.
