Interior style - the 50s

Our designer

Cornish designer, Matt Hulme from Dynargh Design, made his mark at Watergate Bay when he created the interiors for the continental bar, Watchful Mary. As well as looking good, Matt’s projects have to work as functional spaces; bedrooms, bars and restaurants, so he was our first choice when it came to redesigning our two sea view suites.

Room 52 - design notes

Take some inspiration from Matt’s design notes and create a similar style at home. Pieces have been sourced from HK Living, Designers Guild, Garden Trading and Nkuku.

  1. Cushions
    Used to bring some pattern to the scheme, both in a rich indigo but with different patterns.

  2. Artwork:

  3. Pendant light:
    Key feature of the room in order to bring texture to the actual fitting, but also at night it creates a beautiful warm glow and shadow on the ceiling.

  4. Paint colour:
    The colour scheme if light and airy – in order to make the indigo colours of the fabrics and soft furnishings stand out.

  5. Bed throw:
    Handmade blanket with chunky pom pom trim and tassel edges, to give additional texture to the bed and also create a homely feel.

  6. Armchair:
    armchair upholstered in leather to give a slight retro feel / nod.

Room 53 - design notes

Take some inspiration from Matt’s design notes and create a similar style at home. Pieces have been sourced from HK Living, Designers Guild, Garden Trading and Nkuku.

  1. Cushions
    Used to bring some pattern and texture to the scheme. The back cushion is a rich pink velvet that pulls some of the colour out from the front patterned cushion.

  2. Artwork
    A collection of different pieces of art collected from various websites and framed – in order to not feel too cliché or obvious.

  3. Bedside light
    A glass base with textured linen lampshade – to prevent the bedside tables feeling cluttered but again adding texture with the lampshade.

  4. Paint
    The slightly more vibrant tone of this paint helps give the rooms a slightly contemporary and brighter feel. The paint colour is also linked within the artwork above the bed.

  5. Wall shelves
    Oak wall shelves used to display various objects that include plants and greenery – to again give a homely and collected feeling to the space.

  6. Bedside tables
    The original table were stripped back to the natural wood, with the top left as timber and finished with a medium Oak stain. The framework has been sprayed a dark grey to sit with the overall colour palette of the scheme.

  7. Armchair & desk chair
    Armchair upholstered in leather to give a slight retro feel / nod.

  8. Desk lamp
    Dark metal of the desk lamp is to link with the metal work of the new armchairs and also new cast iron style radiators – to tie everything together.

  9. Desk
    The original desk was stripped back to the natural wood, with the top left as timber and finished with a medium Oak stain. The framework has been sprayed a dark grey to sit with the overall colour palette of the scheme.
Interior Design Bunk Room

Bunk rooms - design notes

  1. Cushions
    Tie dye pattern of the bed cushion is to link with the bespoke digital print wallpaper that we designed.

  2. Reading light
    each bunk has an individual reading light so that children / guests can read without disturbing others sleeping in the room.

  3. Wallpaper
    bespoke ombre style wallpaper that goes from a dark indigo through to lighter blue and white as it ascends the walls.
    This fully wraps the room in order to make the bunk rooms feel fun but also linking palette wise with the main bedroom scheme.
