Naturally, the glazing has drenched the home in natural light. “The void expanding the whole length of the home brings in the morning sun and light throughout the day, bouncing off the chalky hue surfaces,” Christine says. To establish the soft material palette, Christine selected Danish white oak, natural quartz stone and Italian raw linen, while adding warmth with handpicked objects and art.
Christine says her selection was based on how the material, finish or furnishing made them feel, rather than what’s on-trend. “We lead busy lives, so with this in mind, we ensured the harmonious colour palette was subdued, thereby creating a calming and relaxing mood,” she says. In this way, Christine has designed a functional family home that makes the best use of the space it occupies, while prioritising calm.
