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.
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.
Example of paneling profiles and stained oak.
Beautiful profiling. Attention to details !
View A Paneling plan and situation before.In 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.
This is a picture of the paneled wall with the integrated cabinets,on which our employees are working at this very moment.
View A Detail chimney paneling and situation before.The existing antique marble chimney was a very important piece in the area which we had to take into account.
View B Dining area window wall and situation before. This side will be totally paneled, radiator coverings included.
The radiator covering in preparation at our working shop. Initially the radiator covering was sketched with plain paneling, but our client has finally chosen for the woven wood paneling.
View C Wall opposite integrated cabinet wall (view A) and before situation. To create symmetry in the dining area, the wall opposite of the wall of view A, will be also paneled in the same way. But there are no integrated cabinets here. Again, on each of the wooden panels, a contemporary work of art.
Paneling of this wall in our working shop so far.
Color palette dining area. Grey stained paneling. Beige linen draperies.
New chosen sofas and wingchair, all upholstered in Belgian linen.
Sitting area plan.
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.
Possible combination of colors of library corner paint and stained paneling.
I love the way this paneling is painted. I would love to see this applied on the library cabinet doors.
Library corner Technical plan and before situation.The piano is moving to another room of the house and a beautiful library wall cabinet will be installed instead.
In the closed cabinet parts all hi-fi and computer appliances will be hided.
View D Library corner window wall and situation before.Even the paneling above the windows has to be painted in the same color as the library cabinets.
The existing bergères and footstools will be re-upholstered in a combination of a beige linen and a beautiful floral motif fabric.
I definitely want to share with you this beautiful floral motif fabric I ordered at the British company CABBAGES & ROSES ! Isn’t it amazing that blogging ables us to discover the most wonderful addresses around the world ???!!! As I discovered the beautiful Cabbages & Roses blog a few months ago.

At this moment I am looking for the appropriate furniture pieces, decoration and lighting to finish this project.
The different parts of the project have to be stained now, before leaving our working place to be installed at our client’s home.
On Thursday this week, our employees will start to install the project !
Client’s home this morning! Ready for a wonderful new look!
To be continued…
I do hope that you enjoyed this post about this latest Lefèvre Interiors’ project !
I am so thankful to my clients who gave me permission to share their project on my blog.
I promise to post ‘after’ pictures within a few weeks.
It is all so beautiful. That third inspiration photo for the living room sent me to heaven. I love all of your choices – the colors, the textures, especially that grey-blue paneling!How perfect that you found the fabric through a blog connection. I just love that. I can't wait to see it all done.
am loving seeing this project come together..
the fabric colors and selection is so very nice as are the accent pieces of furniture..
but the most gorgeous part is all the stunning wood paneling and cabinets…
how I hope I find an old house that has much of this paneling in it too..
Greet this is going to be a stunning project. I love all of your choices. The library paneling will be perfect with a blue/grey stain!
