Emma Reddington of Toronto design blog The Marion House Book is inspired by this bright dining room captured by photographer François Halard. "It's the combination of unfinished herringbone floors, brick fireplace, towering ceilings and elegant black trim that attracts me to this space," she says. "If we were ever to redo our dining room, this is one image I would definitely reference!"
