The kitchen-diner has a more urban feel, with concrete flooring flowing through to a chic, city-dwellers’ version of a garden room. Classic, enduring surfaces including brass, marble and timber make this hard-working space functional and contemporary.
The master bathroom is a good size despite its Toblerone shape. The monochrome palette and modern freestanding bathtub with matching his and hers sinks create a chic hotel-like interior. Simple ovals, marble and a micro cement floor keep things serene and uncomplicated.
This is one room where the ‘Toblerone’ shape of the house really reveals itself. The bespoke desk keeps the room uncluttered, and helps create the illusion of space.
Get the look: This is the Masculo chair by GamFratesi for Gubi. The desk lamp is by Anglepoise. The wall is painted in Hague Blue estate emulsion by Farrow & Ball. The landscape photography, entitled Yangshou Dawn, is by Tim Hall.
