This third floor B&B business has commanding views of Kapiti Island to the west. A picturesque view to the east overlooks the highly rated local golf course. While being part of one large property, the top floor B&B needed to be self-sufficient, to give the guests a sense of escape from the demands of everyday life. The unique location and the level of luxury has achieved this.
The existing colour scheme was the previous owner’s choice and not suitable for a high end B&B accommodation. The colour needed to evoke a sense of calm and luxury for paying guests.
With references to the golf course, the island and coastal colours helped inspire the final colour choice. Resene Tasman was a perfect backdrop for the rich palette of colours and textures used.
The natural timber wall picture frames the headboard and soft furnishings of the bed. This has been sealed with Resene Aquaclear waterborne clear urethane to keep it as natural as possible.
The eucalyptus timber colour is a complementing contrast to the Resene Tasman wall colour. The texture and warmth of the timber at night helps set the mood.
The existing tower had a modernist industrial feel with suspended aluminium stairs and purple plywood walls fixed off with roofing screws. The B&B room is an intentional juxtaposition with the journey through the house and architectural office to a private luxury retreat.
