I’ve had quite a break over Christmas and New Year but back now and kicking the year off with a project from one of my favourite designers… Mixing pattern, textures and materials are the key to Studio McGee’s designs, for example juxtaposing a leather sofa next to a linen sofa. A dark almost black buttoned […]
Another fabulous project from Studio Mcgee, contemporary meets traditional… What’s not to love about this space, a mix of contemporary pieces and traditional give it a modern look with a heritage nod. Textures are big with Studio McGee and if you look closely at the coffee table in image 5 you will see it has […]
Crib Creative If we want to make a personal good impression we will want to dress our best, this can also be said of the first impression one receives as they step inside our home… When someone visits our home for the first time, it gives them an impression of the person we are, it […]
Described as “Cape Cod meets West Indies”, another fabulous project by one of my favourite design companies. The exterior architecture of this new build leans towards Hamptons, however Black Band Design have also injected a tropical feel inspired by quote, the “vibrant waters of the Caribbean”. When planning a new build by oneself with no interior designer […]
1. Image via Mercer Interior The word, ‘boho’ may conjure up a riotous mix of colours and patterns, muddle these together in a messy but creative way and throw in some greenery and you may have the boho of the past. However, today boho can be far more chic, in fact…..’boho chic’. ‘Boho’ stems from the word […]
“Casual and sophisticated, modern and timeless, serene but colourful” is how the designer describes this relaxed, South Carolina home. The designers, Guest House Studio, have used varying shades of blue for this project, with paint, soft furnishing and artwork.

Coastal with Style by Burnham Design – Part 1
While researching for my post on ‘How to Select Lighting for a Coastal Look’, I came across a home full of layers, textures and stunning vignettes and spotted the small cabinet above and went ooh! how I would love that in my entrance way.
Burnham Design is not a name I was familiar with before but it will be one I don’t forget as I absolutely love their style. I was initially drawn to the console (see above) in this home, although I featured image 10 previously in a post on ‘How to Select Lighting for a Coastal Look’. The console above and it’s vignette are beautiful, the perfect mix of textures and pattern. The woven basket reflects the diamond pattern in the floor and the pattern in the rug below. The small pot of flowers is the colour of the blue skies and boat in the small painting and I love how the entire vignette is layered from front to back, layering items is important when creating a vignette.
Burnham have created coastal elegance in this home using an eclectic mix of furniture throughout that has me returning for a second and third look to soak up all the interesting pieces of furniture and decorative pieces.There are too many photos to share in one post so I hope you return Monday for part two.
If you love this coastal home and want to see more, please pop back on Monday to se the rest of the tour. If you are interested in Burnham design, please visit their website fore more details, I have included a link above.
