A kitchen/living space has been transformed with just a few tweaks. A larger dining table and sleek chairs provide more entertaining space, whilst new lighting and mirrors add interest and glamour.

The single pendant light was replaced with two chrome and crystal chandeliers to give an even spread of light and make the dining table a real focal point.

A view of the corner of the dining area, showing the new side table and lamp, with mirror above. Before the area had been used for storage, with gold framed artwork where the mirror now is.
A close up photo of the new chandeliers with the kitchen in the background. Before, there was one large glass beaded chandelier which wasn't in proportion to the space or the dining table.

Adding a few key pieces and accessories has united all the different shades of grey, black and taupe in the room. The different textures and finishes range from smooth satin to soft faux fur, and add interest to a monochromatic scheme.
