Richly-Coloured Dining Room

Dark walls create a cosy ambiance for entertaining.

"The earthiness of a seagrass rug is the perfect backdrop for opulent silk velvet dining chairs, old world hand-blocked linen curtains and Fortuny light fixture," notes designer Melody Duron. The graceful round table and sisal carpet are more subdued complements that work well with the glamorous touches.
