1/7 Natural open-plan living room
2/7 Modern seventies-inspired living room
The coffee-coloured walls in this area of the living room set the scene for a warm space with a 1970s vibe. The mix of natural materials is evident here, as it is throughout the house, with stone, leather and wooden items teamed with glass, metal and gloss surfaces for a modern feel.
3/7 Cool neutral living room
The TV is set against a 'floating' box, which hides music decks and controls. The box has been decorated with hand-made paper, which adds texture to the neutral scheme. White concrete shelves display curvy sculptural pieces for a soft feel.
4/7 Dining room inspired by nature
The abstract artwork is the defining feature in this dining room. Natural materials match with the painting to produce an organic feel, while the metal and glass dining table and white dining chairs enhance the room's light, modern aspects.
5/7 Impressive hallway
Central to this open-plan home is the stunning stone wall, which leads the eye up the stairs to the second floor bedroom and bathroom. The textures and tones within the wall bring depth to this home, while the light interjects the natural look with another element of modernism.
6/7 Luxurious bedroom
Textures are at the heart of this luxe bedroom with silk and embroidered cushions; an oil painting; a crochet-style throw; a tactile rug; and marble walls in the adjoining bathroom. Just off the staircase, this bedroom has been kept open at the front, so as to maximise the light coming from downstairs.
7/7 Serene bathroom
A mix of materials, marble, wood and stone, all in natural colours, give this bathroom a warm feel. The pebbles bring a hint of the nearby beach to the scheme, and the soft lighting creates a serene vibe. Sleek lines, white furnishings and pale grey walls keep the look modern.
