Tales in Timber

Timber furniture is like a fingerprint. Each piece has a unique imprint like no other. Solid and stable it tells a story about its history and character and instantly adds warmth and foundation to any living space.

The Brief

There‚Äôs nothing I love more than a good project and this beachside relocation had it all. A lovely client, a blank canvas, and the freedom to make it happen…with only two non-negotiables: the TV and the couch had to stay. I quickly set about ripping up old tiles, carpeting and painting. Against a muted palette I went with one of my favorite combinations – gorgeous timber furniture and greenery. And livened things up with a range of artworks of different shapes and sizes (hung at different heights throughout). I finished off with a selection of elegant found objects and personal knick knacks to create a warm and sophisticated beachside abode perfect for a stylish retirement.
