High-rise Makeover

Many people live in modern high-rise apartment blocks these days and it can be a real challenge to create a welcoming interior in what is basically a space that is more "office" than "home".
New York designers have been tackling this problem for years and this dining nook makeover by Celerie Kemble (from House Beautiful) is a great example of how they use fabric and texture to soften the hard lines and completely ignore the "office" room structure.
The banquette makes the corner particularly cosy and the circular rug defines the dining space.


  1. I love this - you'd never know it was in a high rise! :)

  2. That is a really nice use of space! I like it!
