The Singapore-based owners had purchased the five bedroom property as a UK base, with plans to use it for family holidays.
Camellia Interiors were approached after the clients fell in love with the coastal charm of the area, with its diverse colour palette dependant on the seasons.
They wanted a coastal palette to create a relaxing yet practical environment for their holidays. And capitalising on their investment and the available space, they sought flexible internal accommodation.
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 the mild sub-tropical climate, under one roof.
The style had to be fun yet formal, embracing the integrity of the property’s character and proportions, without compromising contemporary living requirements.
Overcoming an old extension and creating form out of a difficult space:- a large scale traditional print wallpaper in ochre was used to detract from the extension walls and balance the texture of the original supporting Cornish granite wall. This area did not have a view so a clever scheme was used to add impact to the rear of the property and give it some Wow factor.
The anthracite colour of the bespoke kitchen cabinetry contrasts with black, acid yellow and white furniture, accents of which travel thoughout the house.
