Eco-Chic Dining Room

A green cottage design makes the most of surrounding nature.

White walls with large windows on both sides let in lots of sunlight and ambient heat and provide a fantastic view of the trees around the property. Country style exposed brick, stacks of logs and a simple wood table offer contrast to the polished concrete floors, Dash & Albert rug and red pendant light, which inject modern energy and colour into the space. Clear acrylic dining chairs from Ikea keep the room airy and sophisticated.
