“Panelling takes a room to the next level, adding lots of visual interest,” says Irene of the dining room. It can even make a small space look bigger, she says. The vignette of artwork, a gilt-framed mirror and an empty frame was actually intentional. “I’ve had that mirror for many years. It was hanging on the wall in the living room, so it was a little more traditional,” says Irene. “By bringing the mirror into the dining room and leaning it on the floor, it feels less formal, but still elegant and dramatic, which I like.”
A modern glass railing stands in direct contrast, visually expanding the main floor and allowing loads of natural light to flow through. White walls, blonde floors and natural materials were added to create a calm canvas that’s restful on the eyes.
