The Saarinen dining table was the perfect size and shape and the wishbone chairs make the dining area feel more fluid.

For the bedroom the timeless BL6 Wall Lamp in off-white, a lamp that has been in production since 1930 is paired with Farrow & Ball's wallpaper, a paper inspired by the 18th century design from the Uppark House.

For the backsplash we went with a white ceramic subway tile, the jeans and t-shirts of the tile world! They’re basic, but paired with a dark grey grout they feel modern and can transform a small space.
