The clients' brief was to have the feeling of a chill-out luxury lodge that blended with the environment.
Designed as a weekend retreat this holiday home enjoys extensive mountain and lake views, therefore we took a little time to study nature's surroundings before creating the colour palette.
The clients' brief was to have the feeling of a chill-out luxury lodge that blended with the environment, somewhere peaceful after a hard day in nature's playground of hunting, fishing or skiing.
Resene Smokey Ash, Resene Tamarind and Resene Masala were used to blend the union of the built environment with the natural environment. We then added Resene Cedar to add a little natural vibrancy to the soffits and extensive decking areas.
The end result was a home that blends completely into the environment changing the feel with every change in weather pattern. A house that becomes invisible when on the lake looking back. A house that is easy on the eye and its natural surroundings.
Non intrusive interior design, low profile furnishings, muted tones and textural elements all work to reinforce the link with nature.
Resene Masala was used extensively throughout the living areas to reflect the nearby rock faces.
The master bedroom bedhead wall makes a feature of the vibrant Vision Neo wallcovering inspiring the lodge feel.
