Interior: Sunny living and dining room
Style at Home
- Photography by
Style at Home contributing design editor Christine Hanlon refreshes her living and dining rooms with a few sunny updates. We asked her how she did it.
"I'm lucky to be surrounded by inspiration every day. I get to work with a lot of talented people and see new products and trends before they're even made public," says Style at Home
contributing design editor Christine Hanlon. "I've come to learn that decor
styles change almost as quickly as fashion trends." That attitude serves her well, especially in her own home, where she can test out her latest design
crushes without completely reinventing each room.Play with patina
The classic fireplace
is one of Christine's favourite features in the room. The wall sconces, chandelier and coffee table
- moved from the family room to take pride of place here - all have warm golden tones that glow against the creamy white backdrop. Inexpensive Parsons tables on either side of the fireplace stand in for the built-in shelves Christine plans to install one day. The headdress above the mantel adds softness and movement to the space.
