November's Interior Inspiration...


Master monochrome with a duo of our favourite Wealden Times interiors and gorgeous shopping picks... 

1. Seagulls and Stripes...

Sara and Jon chose a crisp and clean palette of colours that would flow through the public rooms and guestrooms of their boutique B&B, The Laindons in Hastings. Sticking to sky and seascape blues, whites and greys, and peppering their rooms with a carefully chosen selection of coastal-inspired objects, they have created a calming and tranquil space that reflects their surroundings. 

Recreate their look at home by opting for simple patterning, like their stripy theme, and varying the size and texture or wallpapers, carpets and soft furnishing, whilst keeping paint de. 

"We set out to find a balance between the property being warm and welcoming but, at the same time, bright and uncluttered," says Sara. And that is exactly the result they have achieved. See the full feature here.

Outside In...

Because everything in Heather and Peter's design-led glass house is on show, from the kitchen through to the dining area,  sitting room and on to the trees on the far side of the garden, they have chosen to keep fixtures and fittings to a minimum, opting for a simple black and white colour scheme to allow the beautiful landscape that surrounds them take centre stage.

The kitchen is two white islands with Wilsonart work surfaces beneath which are secreted all the traditional kitchen appliances. All that is on show is a ceramic hob and a brushed steel tubular extractor hood. The American white oak dining table is Parallel by De La Espada and sharing its space are the classic Rohe-designed Brno cantilevered white leather and steel dining chairs.

The main relaxing area features a white B&B Italia sofa by Antonio Cittero and two white leather and tubular steel Walter Knoll armchairs. Between them is a delicate nest of tables by Poul Kjærholm and, waiting on the sofa, two circular tubular chrome and glass tables by Eileen Gray. A final touch of sweeping elegance comes in the form of a limited edition Arco lamp with a black marble base signed by Castiglioni. See more of the Cernis's home here.
