Type: Residential – New Build
Location: Gippsland, VIC
Our Country House project in Gippsland combines a mix of country warmth with modern luxury.
The brief was to create a warm and inviting interior design with a country-lux edge to it. The use of natural materials was highlighted by the client as a must, as was material suitability and an earthy feel. Within a fantastic architectural shell, the light filled interiors provide unobstructed views out to the farmland beyond. With these key items in mind, Thextonsmith delved into the design process.
The resulting interior is a country-lux mix utilising natural, stones, timbers and veneers in a simple and homely way, allowing the built aspect of the fit-out to be enhanced by an interchangeble layer of soft furnishings over time. Where metals were used, these were subtle – such as in the aged brass tapware, hardware and rangehood surround, enhancing the sense of luxury, without overpowering the earthy character and feel.
Choice slabs of marble were selected for the benchtops and splashbacks, warm and rich timber veneer to the joinery, travertine flooring to the entry way and ensuite feature wall, and elegant yet organic pendant lights top off this rural elegance look and feel.
Perfect understated luxury.
