b'alternative solutionchic and sophisticatedtimber and blue accents make this chic space shineDesigners Emma Adkins and Georgia Hay suggest this alternative scheme:Inspired by the full height joinery and its connection to the outdoor deck, this room has been transformed into a lounge for entertaining. To increase the sense of permeability and indoor-outdoor flow, we have replaced the internal door with a cavity slider and incorporated a timber batten feature wall stained in Resene Colorwood Canopy to coordinate with the exterior cladding. We have created a balance between formal and informal in this multi-functional living space by layering texture and specifying relaxed, unstructured furnishings. Subtle sophistication is injected through the use of accents in Resene Rhino while LED strip lighting creates extra atmosphere in the evening.phone 09 869 8048 web www.sampleworkshop.co.nzResene RhinoNavy Blue and Grey Abstract Downloadable Art Gallery J9www.etsy.com/shop/GalleryJ9Resene Colorwood CanopyAmelie Halo Coffee Tables Resene Colorwood Soren Liv Driftwoodwww.sorenliv.com0800 001 690Ethnicraft Slouch Sofabefore Soren Liv Mulberi Sanako Denim RugAbove: Emma and Georgias entertaining space incorporatesillustrationwww.sorenliv.comdramatic backlit timber cladding in Resene Colorwood Canopy andMalcolm White 0800 001 690 Furtexunderlit shelves to create a sophisticated moody look.
