Natural materials are at the heart of this restful bathroom. It has been wrapped in a water-repellent tadelakt finish on the walls and Dinesen oak cladding around the bathtub and on the floor. The muted, weathered tones ensure a soothing scheme.
Light-filled rooms can elevate our mood and help us feel calmer and more focused. Reducing visual noise and keeping living spaces uncluttered will also foster a tranquil feel. In this scheme, a window seat makes the most of the natural light. Tactile washed linens and chunky ceramics add interest and texture to the white space without distracting from the sense of simplicity and airy calm in the room.
WORK OF ART
Never has working from home felt so important as in the last year or two, and so creating an uncluttered study area has become more desirable than ever. Such a space can be carved out of any unused corner in the home, such as a living room mezzanine as here, or a lofty landing, or spare room. Natural materials and a pared-back desktop helps to cultivate a focused mind.
This country kitchen is beautifully considered and simply functional. A wooden rack above the reclaimed double sink acts as a shelf-cum-draining board. Old chopping/cutting boards are housed in the fireplace, cleaning equipment is hidden behind a vintage linen curtain and a sturdy old wooden table doubles as a central island and dining table. Simple honest materials.
Creating a restful space is the priority in any bedroom retreat. And one way this can be achieved is through the color palette. Colours can stimulate and excite us, or they can make us feel relaxed and at peace. Here, an earthy brown tone on the wall paneling and the neutral tones found in the artwork and textiles, all drawn from nature, harmoniously combine for a cosy forest cabin feel.
