Dining room makeover on the way..

I have several projects on the go including this dining room makeover which will lead to living room makeover as well, since both rooms are in open plan. Here is the design proposal which we will go ahead with. First is the sampleboard..

 ..and this is the look I’m trying to achieve.

The room has an existing teak cabinet which will be painted inside with Farrow & Ball Churlish Green – I love that colour. The window treatment will have two geometric fabrics from Scion – one navy blue with interlocking ovals for the padded pelmet box and the other one, more geometric, sharp edged design (for contrast and balance) in lime green for the actual curtains. The walls need to remain light due to lack of natural light (even though the room leads to a conservatory, the position of the house provides the dining room with poor natural light), so I’ve chosen this Zoffany textured wallpaper. It has a slight shimmer with 3D effect. Apart from the chandelier above the table (still needs to be finalised), there will be two tall stunningly hand decorated table lamps and the central tall cabinet will also have internal lighting. The rug I have kept quite simple with white spots on black background. I want to carry on with some element of black into the living room area. The dining chairs are from Dwell and so is the dining table. As you can see, I have proposed two paintings from Franz Marc (I wrote about his art last week), which I’m so pleased about. They will inject colour on the walls and tie the whole scheme together.. colourwise.
I can’t wait for the result. Stay tuned and I will keep you updated..
