For this newly built residence, the client wanted a home that evokes a real holiday feeling. With many windows, beautiful views, and an interior that is inspired by the Casa Cook Hotels, Laura Calleeuw turned this project into a unique residence that fits nicely with her own design style.
That the owners of this residence are very happy with Calleeuw’s work is evidenced by the fact that this is already the third project that the interior designer took care of for them. After the renovation of their previous home and an office, this newly built house, where KLOU Architects was responsible for the architecture, was next. The client wanted an interior that always feels like a holiday and in which beautiful contrasts are used. The first element that strikes the eye is that the interior architect did not opt for her typical beige-greige colours here, but made use of grey shades with a bronze finish, for example in the lightning and the power sockets. Calleeuw chose a combination of customised stone, wood, and painting techniques. The smoked oak and the cast floor with ceppo look immediately give the project a special feel. The slightly porous natural stone has uneven markings and textures here and there, but is still naturally tucked up, keeping it very low maintenance. The long cabinet wall in the kitchen consists of two warm colours, giving the impression of natural panelling. The cabinet has two sliding doors, where the lower cabinets continue at the height of the panelling. The semi-transparent curtains provide sufficient see-through to the outside, but at the same time create a cosy, more intimate atmosphere and let in enough light. In the seating area, comfort and cosiness are central. A television and a fireplace were conveniently incorporated into the wall unit. Above the television, the trellis also conceals an air conditioner. This has a very playful look, but is thus also functional. The upstairs bedroom gives the feeling of a luxurious master suite. Calleeuw opted for a wooden ceiling here. In addition, the open space is divided by the half-height bed wall and the bisson brunel woven textile between the glass wall. This forms a partition between the bedroom and the dressing room. The dressing cupboards are a combination of wooden framework and stretched textiles, creating a southern holiday feel. The trellis, which is repeated throughout the interior, plays with structures. This arouses curiosity and creates a sleek atmosphere. This also allows indirect lighting to shine through, creating depth and breaking up the walls.
An interior that always feels like a holiday and in which beautiful contrasts are used
In the bathroom, a glass wall with bisson brunel woven textiles again divides the space. As there are two shower heads, it is possible to shower together here, creating a nice hotel feel. Circulation along two sides is also possible. The special trellis is reflected here in the back wall of the washbasin cabinet and the underside of the bath. This also allowed a drop-click panel to be placed under the bath, so you cannot see any technical installations. A front wall was designed at the washbasin cabinet. On the one hand, a sliding door can be slid behind that wall, and on the other hand, this eliminates the use of typical hanging mirror cabinets. However, there are cabinets hidden behind the mirrors. This bathroom does, in other words, provide a real luxury experience. Calleeuw once again demonstrates that she only delivers top-quality projects, which are always adapted to all the customer's wishes and expectations. Her personal vision of interior design is certainly not forgotten: this home is the perfect combination of warmth and functionality.
