Houzz TV: Step Inside a Designer’s Upbeat Eclectic Home
Coming from a cottage with low ceilings and a closed-in feel, interior designer Jessica Spencer wanted to make the main living area in her new home one big light and airy space. She knocked down walls and relocated rooms to create an expansive kitchen-diner that has a wall of windows overlooking the garden. She decided against wall cabinets in the kitchen to amplify the open feel and added a black island to ground the space.
In the dining area, Jessica emphasised an exposed brick wall to add warmth and interest, displayed a collection of knick-knacks on industrial shelving, and surrounded the table with mismatched chairs in a range of styles and colours for an eclectic look. In the living room, blue-black walls and a green chesterfield sofa create moody drama, while dark accent walls in the bedrooms thread a cohesive look and feel throughout the home.
