Honky have been shortlisted for Interior Design Scheme – UK Award in The International Design and Architecture Awards 2021.
A prestigious contemporary family residence on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal town of St Peters. Jersey has a rich and varied landscape. Its sweeping dunes and patchwork of green fields is flanked by towering cliffs and circled by unspoilt beaches. The terrain is flat on the south coast, with rocky headlands, rising gradually to rugged cliffs along the north coast.
This five-bedroom home was built with indigenous jersey stone, slate and sandy tones with the natural habitat in mind. A contemporary build in its construction, the internal brief was to reflect the variety of the landscape. Honky were commissioned to do the full interior design service and FF&E for this home drawing on its surroundings of both nature and sea.
The large living room echoes the beaches washed clean by the time, leaving sun warmed rock pools and lagoons to explore. The colour palate of coppers, blues, and pale drift-wood finishes on the bespoke cabinetry. The marble hearth and coffee table emulate the grey and silky nature of the pebbles on the beaches.
In the master bedroom the rocky headlands of Jersey are reflected in the deep greys and blacks of the furniture. Honky used the marble and textured fabric to create a bespoke featured wall behind the bed emulating the cliffs that surround the island. Deeply textured fabrics were used to add the organic feeling of granites and stone.
In the second bedroom Honky were inspired by the irresistible pull that draws the sea to the shore. On Jersey you are never more than ten minutes form the water’s edge so it’s easy to find a quiet space to revitalise and recharge and this room recreates this feeling with its undulating headboard like the waves washing onto the beaches.
The overall scheme pays homage to the island’s natural tones of greys, rusts, and blues. This palate moves through the residence with a calm and fluid flow with the occasional bursts of strong, accent colours adding character and warmth to the interior.
