matthew patrick smyth Dining Room

In this New York City apartment, a smallish windowless space is transformed into a dining room with Moroccan flair. Every meal now feels like a getaway.

The room’s large scale, multi-hued, hand-printed wallpaper features a traditional North African star pattern, derived from a mosaic tiled wall.  The paper, when paired with a capiz shell chandelier, weighty stone table, vintage dining chairs, and a white resin mirror over a 1970s console, contributes to the dining room’s overall modern Moorish drama.
