The bright and colourful design details used in the renovation of this Stoneybatter home results in an energising space that feels modern and fresh…
This styling project by Think Contemporary, conducted in a compact but modern home in Stoneybatter, exemplifies autumn.The space is gorgeously cosy, filled with warm hues and distinctive design features.
As the Dublin home is of smaller size than other projects, functionality was paramount. Space had to be optimised, without compromising on style and look. The client’s keenness to go bold with colours and object choices led to a stunning finish.
Think Contemporary built in bespoke storage and shelves along the main room wall to accommodate the bookish client’s broad collection of novels and guides. This comfortable reading corner is complemented with the chair and footstool from CA Design.
The client was interested in creating a dining space that was stylish and adaptable to different scenarios. They went with a smart white table from Bo Concept Ireland which can extend to accommodate extra dinner guests without adding bulk.
The choice to paint the entire staircase – from banister to underside – in an emerald shade broke up the more neutral, warmer colours of the sofa and wall.
Finding a way to balance contemporary interior choices with a building’s existing period features is true design genius. This tiled chimney breast, a classic period style feature decorated in narrow tiling, is a brilliant example of this. The accessories in this project really helped finesse the design. The ceramic bowls on the table are from Kate Quinlan Studio and the vases are from HAY.
