Creating a natural and calming dining space

The earthy palette

In designing her new home Fredrika intentionally choose an earthy and grounding palette, where natural elements are in abundance creating a sense of calm and serenity. 

You can see this as you peruse the images of the home. Using natural timbers for the dining table and teaming this with our Tanner leather dining chairs in Teak. The soft sheer curtains, marble bench tops and cream sofa all add to this sense of calm.
