Design by Louis Duncan-He
To bring a sense of intimacy to the long room, Louis started with the walls. “I used wallpaper and paneling to provide some visual balance and a little more sophistication,” he says.
Next he created the perfect spot for predinner drinks by adding two lounge chairs, a coffee table, and a couple of poufs, which create a dividing point between the dining area and lounge spot. That combined with a pair of brass floor lamps creates symmetry and helps break up the large room.
“I think it hits the perfect note between relaxed and beautiful entertaining,” he says.
