Get 'The Living Space' look
The Living Space – our laid-back hub for eating, drinking and lounging at the heart of the hotel – has been transformed.
The wide angle Atlantic views, outside deck and show-off sunsets are the same, but the inside spaces have a new warmth and soul. Natural textures, pops of colour, lush plants and large format artwork flavour the free-flowing series of spaces, with plenty of quiet corners to settle in, catch up, work, play or just be.
We're often asked where to find the sizeable woven basket pendant lampshades, and the suppliers behind the other textures and features, from cushions to artworks. We caught up with the designer Matt Hulme from Dynargh Design to share his secrets on how to recreate The Living Space look at home.
