This holiday home was renovated in order to make it a homely residence for a large family to enjoy. The existing interiors had a very masculine feel and were very dark and un-inviting. A fundamental change which was necessary was to change the floor on the ground floor. The existing dark floor was removed and a warm wood look tile was installed – instantly creating a whole new feeling to the space. Floor design is crucial and must not be forgotten about. An existing & unwelcoming office was converted into a second lounge – a practical place for the children to escape to away from the formal living area. 4 bedroom suites were individually designed to suit the tastes & requirements of each child. The childrens rooms are more playfull with more colours, whereas the master suite was decorated in a calm neautral colour scheme. The ground floor, consisting of the living and dining areas, are all of a neautral colour scheme. In order to bring interest and movement to the look, we played with contrasting textures and patterns. An injection of black into the formal living area gave the room that punch it needed, a bold contrast to the taupe tones. All hard furnishings were custom designed by our carpenter, including natural wood patrician screens, oversized coffee & side tables, and a made to measure dining table. The interiors were finished off with large rugs, and statement feature wallpapers. The main living area features a natural bamboo wallcovering which added a new dimension to the room. Geometric patterns play an important part of the interiors and are introduced in most rooms through upholstery fabrics, scatter cushions, wall coverings and throws.
