The Singapore-based owners had purchased the five bedroom property as a UK base, with plans to use it for family holidays.
They approached Camellia Interiors, after falling in love with the coastal charm of the area, with its diverse colour palette dependant on the seasons.
Appreciative of the town’s charms, the owners asked the team to imbue their new home with St. Ives’ artistic heritage, its fishing legacy, plus the warmth of the Gulf Stream and and the mild sub-tropical climate, under one roof.
The main bedroom has the breathtaking ‘iconic St Ives view’ that everyone remembers it for, so Camellia has embraced that and juxtaposed it with modern art with acid yellows and an intentional mix of furniture accessorised with the key colours from the view. The end result embraces the view as opposed to fighting it.
The fusion of classic, eclectic and luxury coastal elements within a Victorian structure reflects the evolution of the property from its fishing village roots to a contemporary holiday getaway. The selection of an interior design practice and design team to oversee every aspect and detail of the renovation and furnishings ensured a cohesive end result.
A very happy client and a project to be proud of.
