LIVING BY DESIGN: Use of Wood

Oak is a wood that can shine golden or be dark and depressing. The same can be said of mahogany. 

Here are some examples of my projects:

Dining Room, Mayfair, W1
19th Century panelling restored to its former glory with carvings of masks and foliage, typical of 1870's nostalgia.

Bathroom, Mayfair, W1

In contrast, the oak here is much lighter with only a vast shower [not shown], counter top and bath surround in marble.


Library, Mid West, USA
Carefully chosen, book-matched mahogany of good colour.
Note: John Stefanidis Coffee Table with marble inlay.

Hall in a Rotunda, USA
We designed this inlay wooden floor which I like to think is as brave and bold as those found in the palaces of St. Petersburg, Russia.
