Tess’ intention was to create a look that was ‘traditional country, but with a quirky twist’. Much inspiration was drawn from the stunning coastal landscapes and rich local heritage, which was then woven into the design scheme in playful and distinctive ways.
Tess’ clients were keen to create a kitchen space that was open, inviting and social. An area of the home in which to predominantly host, hold events and throw dinners. The client loves to socialise and therefore wanted their new kitchen to feel seamlessly connected with the dining space and the open plan living area. Tess decided to create a space that despite being large enough to fit a table to sit 20 people, still felt warm and homely. The clever use of soft furnishings and traditional materials, like wood, stop the space from feeling too vast by dampening the sound, and softening the whole feel of the room.
