Designer Trish Johnston: Living room and dining room
“When designing two rooms that are adjacent to each other, try to keep them uniform without being too matchy-matchy. In this case we focused on the orange velvet drapes. They tie the rooms together but still allow each space to have its own unique personality.” – Trish Johnston of Trish Johnston Design
Texture, texture, texture! Combining tactile materials like velvet, mohair and shag rugs with shimmery, luxe lighting connects the two rooms visually and makes them feel full and cozy.
Don’t ignore the fifth wall. Both ceilings are painted a gorgeous inky blue, tying the two rooms together and adding moody personality.
