CLAUDIA’S ISLAND STYLE
Use timber to clad walls and ceilings as well as floors. Once it’s in place, it takes care of itself and provides a soft, neutral backdrop.
Paint outside spaces black. It sounds counter-intuitive for a summer house but it really works.
Don’t worry about everything matching. There are four different types of chair around the kitchen table but they work together because they are all ones we like.
Hang anglepoise lights from the ceiling. They are easy to adjust and make great spotlights.
