My client and our goals
I designed the interior in a Japandi style, which mixes Japanese and Scandinavian elements to create simple, calming spaces. Taking inspiration from the woods near the house, I used a selection of natural colours and materials. Wood, marble and neutral veneers are used throughout the house, creating a consistent feel from room to room. The design follows minimalist principles, making the most of natural light and incorporating clean lines, warm textures, contrasting shades and statement pieces. All materials are high in quality, which ensures the space is practical and durable as well as beautiful and comfortable.
The living room is the heart of the family home, where everyone comes to spend time together. Soft-coloured pendant lights and a variety of textures and shapes create a warm and inviting ambience. A huge sofa and statement armchair provide
cosy places to sit by the dancing flames of the fire.
The kitchen and dining areas are divided by sliding doors. Light and minimalist, the kitchen design uses lots of white marble. The lights above the dining table are reminiscent of the Scottish rain.
