Grand Design

This Victorian weekender looking out to sea enjoys a strong architectural foundation courtesy of Ilario Cortese and an earthy base palette of greys and whites. Additional layers of colour and fabric paired with existing oak furniture pieces bring much-desired warmth and personality to the home.

Delicate hints of pink in the lamp shades, cushions and armchairs reference the owner’s favourite hue, while the bird and animal motifs dotted throughout speak to her fondness for nature. Elsewhere, big, bold patterned fabrics are the ultimate softening counterbalance to the grand scale and practical nature of this working property.
