Get the Look: An Intimate (Dramatic!) Dining Room

Designer Vanessa Stark turns a too-dark corner into the best part of her home.

The Look: Intimate Moment

When designer Vanessa Stark and her partner, Misha Olynyk, first moved into their Vancouver home, they were thrown by a dark corner in their all-white space. But after some clever remodelling—including knocking out a wall—the nook became one of the most beloved elements. The addition of the painted wall, ceiling and bulkhead, as well as contrasting colours from the grey-scale area rug and painting by Olynyk’s father, create a full room without closing up the space—the perfect location for cozy, intimate gatherings.
