In this scenario, we’ve used our Kennet wall tiles in their herringbone form (they also come in hexagonal and brick shapes) on a large scale. Pairing them with the familiarity of classic timber furniture and unfussy wooden floorboards balances the look so that it doesn’t enter into too-contemporary waters. Their expanse brings immediate brightness to the room regardless of whether there’s an abundance of sunshine pouring in or not, which is helped along by the Buckingham mirror’s hand-painted finish in Off-white and the Keats wall lights’ glass shades. But to stop the scheme from becoming a sea of a similar tone, we’ve opted for our Charcoal paint on the Chichester washstand, which gives it some necessary grounding.
This is a look that’s many things – contemporary, classic, dynamic, elegant, striking, serene, and has natural materials touching its every inch from the marble wall tiles, to the rattan Ashcroft baskets, to the solid oak Stratton ladder.
