1. Begin with a restrained palette on the walls and a neutral flooring choice of classic timber floorboards to bring warmth into a contemporary space
2. Make a statement with a custom set of steel-framed doors that allow for uninterrupted sightlines between spaces, the enjoyment of artworks in both rooms and the added bonus of heat retention
3. Introduce key furnishings in soft, fully upholstered textures to layer in colour and warmth – to the eye and the touch. Woollen fabrics in sofas, handwoven rugs in natural fibres.
4. Reflect timbers and other materials such as metal legs in occasional furnishings such as the coffee table and bench seat in the entrance.
“I’ve always admired them in other homes and wanted to incorporate them here. They bring in the light, yet allow you to close off the room when needed.”Christine, homeowner
