Cornish Interiors had the pleasure of working for Jill Stein Interior Design on this large coastal retreat at Booby's Bay in North Cornwall for internet entrepreneur Simon Nixon.
The brief was for high end and luxurious 'coastal hip' and so working with architects Harrison Sutton Partnership we set about creating a house with a timeless feel – luxurious simplicity with clean lines such as oak, limestone, glass and steel.
Now complete, the beach house comprises 5 spacious en-suite bedrooms all with balconies as well as vast, stylish living quarters throughout. It is warm and inviting with wood burning stoves, deep piled rugs and large oversized sofas where you can curl up with a good book.
Sculptures especially commissioned for the project include the 3m high fine bone china fish shoal light installation by Scabetti and 'Big Fish', a piece created with wood and wax on a steel base by local sculptor Jilly Sutton. Paintings by local artists Nicola Bealing, Natasha Chambers and Adam Halls adorn the walls. The bespoke kitchen has been finished in stainless steel, glass and stone and the property mixes modern and traditional materials throughout. The end result is luxurious, comfortable and cosy, particularly in the winter when gales lash the coastline outside.
