Dining Room, Surrey

An intimate, smart and dramatic feel was what we set out to achieve with this formal dining room that sits at the heart this family home. I was immediately drawn to Lewis & Wood’s incredible range of mural-style botanical wallpapers but wanted to ensure the design was muted and sat quietly on the walls above a new dado and panelling that would elevate the room. The paint colours chosen were Charleston Gray for the panelling, Rolling Fog for the doors and Shaded White (all by Farrow & Ball) for the ceiling. The wallpaper is Adam’s Eden in Roan which sits very comfortably alongside the textured Birdlip Twill window dressings in Slade also by Lewis & Wood; the reverse of which was used as a border trim down each curtain and the blind.

Sourcing an oval, extendable, pedestal dining table of the perfect dimensions for the space was a huge challenge, so Norfolk Interior Specialists created this bespoke oak piece with beautiful spherical pedestal legs. Under this sits a stunning antique carpet sourced by Farnham Antique Carpets. Pendants over the table are by Visual Comfort and glossy Gourd vase lamp bases on the antique side table in tortoiseshell from Vaughan.
