Valentina, St Ives Town

The Property:

This wonderful 3-bedroom apartment in the heart of St Ives overlooking Porthminster beach was a blank canvas.

The Client Brief:

The newly refurbished apartment needed our full design service. The apartment was to have a sleek contemporary look that wasn’t obviously coastal and had a clear design influence throughout.

A couple from Dubai purchased this property as a holiday rental investment. St Ives has quite a few holiday homes, so it was important that this apartment looked unique. All of the work was project managed by Hops and Camellias whilst our client continued their busy schedules in Dubai. Communication was key and this was carried out through video calls, emails and telephone taking into consideration the time zones.

Striking colours paired with soft patterns and textures throughout created depth in the scheme. The bathrooms were very dark, the client wanted them lightening up. Space was also an issue and we therefore created more space by converting both bathrooms into wetrooms. Our clients valued our honesty, experience and direction of the design.

The Result

The clients wanted to let the property as high-end and therefore the design needed to be at a level where the client would enjoy visiting but equally appeal to guests as it doubled up as a business. The main aim for our client was to give them a return on their investment. Spending more time at the beginning and achieving stunning results meant the apartment would achieve a higher rental value per week and stand out from the crowd.
