A couple of months ago, one of our clients asked for our services to help them with the renovation of their living and dining room area.

A few years ago we designed and installed their study room. They were extremely satisfied with the result and decided to contact us again for the renovation of the next part of their home.

So I already was familiar with the atmosphere of their beautiful mansion and was excited to start designing the new look of these rooms.

After changing thoughts with my client, I started to create a moadboard.

And Jan and me tried to translate all these thoughts and ideas into a plan.

General Plan.1

As you can see it is a large sized room with heigh ceilings. Gorgeous!

In front of the fire place is situated the sitting area, on the right-hand side of the fire place is seen the dining area and at the far left of the fire place will be created a library corner.

Beautiful profiling. Attention to details !

View A   Paneling plan and situation before.View AIn the dining area, on the far right side of the chimney, you will notice a 3 paneled wall.On each panel there will hang a contemporary work of art. Although you will not see any doorhandles, these wooden panels will hide an integrated cabinet. And the lower section is provided with 3 sliding drawers.


Atelier 7This is a picture of the paneled wall with the integrated cabinets,on which our employees are working at this very moment.

View B   Dining area window wall and situation before. View BThis side will be totally paneled, radiator coverings included.

But there are no integrated cabinets here. Again, on each of the wooden panels, a contemporary work of art.

Because my clients definitely wanted a library cabinet and a writing desk in this area, I decided to create a small library corner at the far left side of the room.

The painting of the library will be applied the moment the project is installed. The painter will have to apply some color samples to obtain the most suitable combination.

I love the way this paneling is painted. I would love to see this applied on the library cabinet doors.

In the closed cabinet parts all hi-fi and computer appliances will be hided.
