Sea Chimes, The Gannel, Newquay

The Property:

Sea Chimes is located within the striking Corisande Manor, set in a waterside location.

The Client Brief:

The Client lived out of the county most of the time. This was a dream holiday home and the client had a very clear vision of how she wanted the house to look but needed help pulling it together. The client asked Elaine to create room schemes for every room and then to furnish throughout. Elaine came up with ideas which matched up with the clients likes and dislikes, as well as suggesting a few wilder ideas, that the client eventually loved. All the sofas, chairs headboards and beds were created shaped and designed by Elaine.

The Process:

Elaine spent time at the beginning of the project to ensure she truly understood exactly what the client’s taste was, to ensure that all her selections what done with her client’s eyes. Design schemes were created for every part of the property. Elaine chose paint in great colours to match up with the character of the architectural features and of course the Amazonian feel of the Gannel river.

The Result:

The end result was a true collaboration between the client and the designer. Bright pops of coral and turquoise furnishings and fabrics add a vibrant look to this super-stylish abode with complementing artwork to evoke the energy of the sea and surrounding areas. The master bedroom is worthy of any boutique hotel with bespoke furniture, a fresh blue and white colour palette and private balcony high above the River Gannel. This stylish coastal house with first-class holiday appeal is now let with Cornish Gems.

“What a fantastic transformation! We chose Elaine to carry out the interior design on our house because she has such an incredible eye for colour and this stood her apart from other designers we talked to. Our decision was vindicated when she delivered a beautiful, layered design that perfectly fits our house to the environment. We love it! 

We wanted a house that looked amazing but that was also practical and hard-wearing as it will be a holiday let. Elaine proved to be practical as well as having an eye for design detail and she delivered our perfect house on time and on budget.  

We are so pleased we worked with Elaine. She was easy to communicate with and managed our deliberations very well, always offering alternatives and support when we struggled to see the big picture or just weren’t sure. She helped us to achieve our dream seaside house.”
