This villa comes complete with an outdoor pagoda lounge area, infinity swimming pool and sunbathing patio, so we wanted to ensure the lines between interior and exterior were blurred so as to give this property an outside-inside vibe, perfect for entertaining.
This refurbishment in Thailand displays how bold primary colours can create a modern and playful look. Through imaginative use of colour, geometric design and works of art, we transformed this once outdated property into a luxurious haven of fun and relaxation.
The architectural design of the property meant that the bedrooms and living room featured floor-to-ceiling windows. This created an airy living space and provided fluidity between the rooms and outdoor area. We enhanced this through the minimal use of soft furnishings, which allowed light to permeate the space.
In the bedrooms, dramatic angular four-poster beds gave architectural grandeur, whilst the selection of local artworks around the property completed the contemporary vibe and celebrated the location of the property.
Almost all the furniture was designed and built exclusively by our team for the project. When selected colours for this, we ensured the palette delivered a bright and pleasing aesthetic, reminiscent of sunshine. Bright yellow chairs in the dining room, for instance, work perfectly with the yolk pendant light hanging above the dining room table. Bright blue and purple-hued hanging lights on either side completed the look. The sunshine theme continued onto the grainy wooden unit nearby, through its golden frame, which stood out brilliantly against the darker wooden shelves.
The block-colouring throughout maintained the humour of our scheme and cultivated a warm and welcoming feel. For this, we were featured in the Top 100 International Interior Designer list in the Interior Design Review, 2017.
We decided to go for a strong but simple feel in the downstairs lounge. White walls with spotlights keep the space minimal. The dark grey modular sofa calls with striped cushions ties in with the unique, oversized artwork which hangs above it and in the corner of the room, apple-green storage provides a touch of colour.
