Wood-Panelled Great Room
Plush, mismatched seating feels welcoming.
When renovating her own century home, designer Ingrid Oomen often opted to keep each room's original features, bestowing modernizing touches as needed — like brightening splashes of white paint. Not so in this cosy space, where she let the gumwood panelling take centre stage; it adds distinction and warmth to the space, which was originally a dining room. Now a welcoming great room, its plush collection of mismatched seating feels cosy and inviting.
