A midcentury pendant hovers above a collection of flea market finds pulling the eye toward the room’s gorgeous built-ins and coffered ceiling.
The Stansell family dining room is minimal in design but dramatic in hue. The gorgeous green is definitely a showstopper trimmed out in white and a perfect complement to the tulip-base white dining table. This room is an example of the fun you can have mixing furniture styles. The wood-stained chairs are more traditional, but they sit comfortably at a modern table, with an edgy chandelier and surrounded by contemporary art. The color green is associated with growth, harmony and safety: I’d say that’s a perfect fit for Stansell family dinners.
Designer Kerrie Kelly designed an unusual retreat for this living room by setting a dining area against the back brick wall of the room, complete with chairs and a built-in banquette.

Throughout the open-plan home, Tze uses rugs to create separation between different areas. Art also helps to reinforce the idea of distinct spaces.
