PUT ART CENTRE STAGE
Let artwork play the lead role in a room by keeping the
decorating “quiet.” Here, pale walls, cream silk drapes
(subtly accented with taupe banding), neutral upholstery and
dark wood floors are the low-key and sophisticated stage
for a bold painting in the dining room. Add in refined details,
like a floor with a herringbone pattern, an oversized crystal-studded chandelier and panelled walls, to provide polish.
