Dreaming of Italy...

Who wouldn't want to take a trip to the heart of Southern Italy and stay in this place?!
One of my top favorite designers  Alexander Waterworth interiors designed this dreamy villa, mixing hints of pastels with touches of rustic warmth.  ... I'm obsessed!!!

Perfect panelling


As a lot of you do know, our company  is specialized in custom made panelling. It is therefore not surprising that I am always looking for inspiring pictures of perfect panelling, preparing a sketch to design a new panelled room project.
Today I posted pictures of panelled rooms, ranging from natural or stained wooden to painted panelling, from the more traditional to the more contemporary panelled rooms.
Even a traditional styled panelling looks great in combination with modern furniture or modern art.
This first image is a Tudor styled panelling designed by Belgian architect  I do love the ‘Concetto spaziale’ painting by Lucio Fontana on this oak panelling.
Notice the secret door on the left!

Again an example of combining traditional panelling with modern furniture and modern art.

Even a dog’s room can be integrated in your panelled room !!

Tudor interiors were typically heavily paneled. This room is been given a softer look by painting the panelling, which is the perfect backdrop for contemporary designed furniture.

Love the contrast of the white painted panelling with the dark stained oak floor.

Choosing for a white color palette gives the room a contemporary look.

Who doesn’t love the Paris apartments in the Hausmannien buildings, with their high ceiling panelled rooms?

These pictures here show a sneak peek of a room we panelled not so long ago.
You will see the image of a panelled room that inspired me to design this room.
Photographer Claude Smekens has taken pictures of the room last week and I will come back to you later to show the entire finished room.
