Country property with a contemporary feel nestled near Falmouth
A few short minutes’ drive through the backroads of Cornwall is the stunning, sprawling property that we have had the pleasure of calling our latest project – Alta. The owners were wanting their new home to be a practical holiday home that would stand the test of time and look good no matter the season.
When we started the project the house was a completely blank canvas, we took influence from the nearby Helford River and the woodland area around the house and used gorgeous deep blue tones, calming eau de nils, and subtle stripes throughout. By layering lots of fabrics and textures we could give the house a really homely feel. The owners loved the patterns we chose for the bespoke cushions and this made each room stand out from the next. With such character in the main property we took advantage of this and used beautiful wallpaper to make feature walls and enhance those vaulted ceilings.
With the main house remaining more of a cottage style we then had the task of fitting out the annex which was much more of a rustic, beach house vibe so we added plenty of artificial plants, quality solid furniture, baskets, feature lighting and throws to give that Coastal vibe that you get from the Lizard just a stone’s throw away.
