Luxe Dining Room Design by Calgary and Kelowna Interior Designer

Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design, Calgary and Kelowna Interior Designer, had an opportunity to design a luxe dining room.  This dining room features some beautiful elements including Phillip Jeffries Granite Stone Plata 1871 Mica Wallcovering , custom drapery made in a beautiful soft-white sateen fabric by JF Fabrics, and some amazing interior wall panelling and coffered ceiling detailing.  The furnishings include a modern and sleek dining table via RH Modern in walnut.  The design includes modern and sleek side dining chairs by SohoConcept as well as tall back custom-made tufted end chairs in a navy velvet fabric.  The velvet is a high-performance fabric that is perfect for regular use by family members & friends.  All furnishings were selected by NFID for both luxe aesthetics and practical daily use.

Adding a natural stone wallcovering above the wall panelling in the rooms not only made the space feel more glamorous, but also provide a beautiful texture finish to the walls.  By wrapping this entire room in a mica wallcovering, the dining room looks fantastic from all perspectives within the home.  Custom drapery panels is a much needed element in a room to help complete and dress windows.  These sateen side panels were custom made by NFID and have a sleek double euro pinch pleat and polished chrome drapery hardware to compliment the finish on the dining room light fixture.  The Hunter Douglas Silhouette window treatments also help provide a soft natural light that can infuse into the dining room during the day.  

We love to include live plans in our designs and were happy to encourage our client to get a fiddle fig tree to put in the space.  Fiddle fig trees not only provide visual interest and natural beauty, but they can provide much needed height in corners as well

1920’s Great Gatsby Style Bedroom and Ensuite

The novel, The Great Gatsby, paints a picture of the roaring twenties.  A well-known era for flapper culture, jazz music, communications technology and the peak of art deco.  In addition, wide use of transportation began to be used in this era with automobiles and aviation usage booming.  NFID took pieces from this fun filled era when curating the design for this 1920’s Great Gatsby style bedroom and ensuite.  Resulting in filling both spaces with antique furniture and art giving a nod to the roaring twenties.


The bedroom showcases a mixture of light and dark hues, playfully contrasting one another throughout the space.  An antique white bed frame sits in the middle of the room.  The bedsheets are a mixture of grey, brown and black tones.  Euro Pillows with a fun art deco pattern sit on the back of the bed.  Along with a luggage toss cushion and custom made black and white striped pillows, that coordinate with the black and white striped Ikea throw blanket.

Additionally, custom-made drapery by NFID completes the contrast in the space.  With the drapery made with JF Fabrics black matte drapery hardware and charcoal brown stripe linen fabric.  The feature wall behind the bed features wallpaper by Andrew Martin. This wallpaper showcases blueprint drawings of different forms of transportation.  Reflecting back on the boom of automobile and aviation usage of the roaring twenties.

Antique items and art are seen throughout the space.  With Arteriors Home table lamps that complement the design of the room.  Giving the space a hint of industrial vibes. Furthermore, the antique clock and football give the space a twenties vibe.  A 1920’s tennis racquet art piece by Restoration Hardware further compliments the theme, along with the mustache print art piece on the wooden dresser. Tying together the Great Gatsby theme of the room.1920

Finer touches are further seen in the walk-in closet of the space, with the custom-made plaid classic roman shade in the window.Bathroom

Vintage art reflecting the roaring twenties is further seen in the bathroom.  With a collage hanging above the towels.  Black and white mosaic tiles on the floor and white subway tiles with a stacked pattern behind the sink.  With the epitome of the Great Gatsby theme seen in the antique brass light fixtures and faucet.  Successfully tying together this Great Gatsby design!

A Fresh + Modern Bonus Room

We love the idea of having a bonus room within your home.  The options are endless with what you could do with this bonus space. This space can be geared for movie nights and/or extra room for entertaining guests.  For this fresh + modern bonus room design, NFID curated a fresh and modern vibe bringing together comfort and style.Fresh Contrast

The colour scheme for this space focused on navy and white accents.  The contrasting use of dark and light colours throughout the room kept the fresh and modern vibe.  Along with the navy, dark wood was also used to add contrast against the white in the space.

The white wood railing by Artistic Stairs, allows the walls and floor to flow together when coming into the bonus room.  This makes the room brighten up, remaining airy and fresh.  While creating an open space feeling.  Upon walking into the room, a navy stairwell pendant is showcased.  This pendant (Penelope Pendant in navy, N808) was designed by Robert Abbey.  This piece comes together with the rest of the navy accents within the room.Continuing the theme of contrasts, vintage mid-century pieces are also seen in the bonus area.  These pieces contain lighter wood complementing the white fabric seen on the armchair and floor lamp.  The vintage mid-century armchair was reupholstered by NFID to compliment the floor lamp and colour scheme of the rest of the room.  To add extra pizzazz, the vintage mid-century floor lamp is held by a unique base.

Modern Design

Overall, the space itself focuses on modern design.  Which can be seen from staple pieces such as the couch, or finishing touches like the BoConcept Black wire basket.  Placed next to the mid-century pieces, this effectively gives the room a subtle and unique twist.  This wire basket is used as storage for extra throws for residents and guests use and disposal.  Right before they nestle into the G.Romano Domino sectional (in JF Fabric Eric, Charcoal).

In addition, custom made toss cushions were created for this room, and are placed throughout the seating areas on the couch and the armchair.  An Eileen Grey Adjustable table in polished chrome and glass is an arm’s reach away from the couch.  Acting as the perfect piece for the final touch of modern design.
