LIGHT & SHADE
This striking Devon home, designed by Field Day Studio, has blended tradition and modernity into a calm and cohesive whole

Set high on a hill above Dartmouth, Devon, with views towards the sea and the rolling wooded hills, is a home that takes inspiration from its location. That sense of being rooted in nature – its colours, textures and the ever-changing play of light – is at the heart of a comprehensive redesign carried out by Jess Gibbons and Kat Turner of Field Day Studio. ‘We wanted to reflect the house’s wonderful views of both the land and the sea,’ says Jess. In part, this is expressed in the colour palette:

‘We blended softer pastels with earthier, more dramatic deep tones to help the scheme feel organic and natural,’ she adds.

For this project, the designers used colours by Paint & Paper Library. ‘Their pigments seemed to perfectly capture the tonal variations of the area’s scenery,’ says Kat. Nuanced off-whites and airy blues echo the coastal aspect, while shades of moss, olive, rich brown and burgundy express the undulating hillsides.
