House Tour – Interior by Peter Dunham
Relaxed and Refined. Peter Dunham is another favourite designer of mine, and you might recognize some of the patterns used in the rooms below as he is not only an interior designer but he creates the most beautiful (and popular) textiles as well! This family home was featured in Traditional Home Magazine.
I love the warmth of the wood floors and the casual welcoming feel of this open plan kitchen and eating area.
His choices are refined, but he pulls the furnishings together in such a way that the room is inviting and comfortable. The rugs are a key element in each of these neutral rooms, I love rugs rugs and more rugs!!!
Mixing the styles of the chairs and the modern shade with the traditional lamp base adds interest, but the use of the same linen colour palette on all the surfaces keep this area visually quiet.
The bed is stunning with its barley twist posts and takes its rightful place as the focal point of the room. Aged looking linens combine with a mixture of antique and modern pieces to create an interesting and worldly feel in this relaxed bedroom.
Simple white subway tiles…works every time. The basketweave tile on the floor is classic too!
A beautiful example of a refined yet relaxed home designed for a modern family but honouring traditional style. Love it.
