The def­i­ni­tion of lux­ury is per­sonal and means dif­fer­ent things to dif­fer­ent peo­ple, but to Tracy Walker of Cal­lum Walker In­te­ri­ors it is sim­ply some­thing that is a plea­sure to use, touch, taste, smell or look at. It adds ex­tra com­fort to daily life or can be a sim­ple item that is beau­ti­fully made or well thought out in the de­sign. It does not have to be ex­pen­sive but it is an in­dul­gence and should al­ways bring joy to the owner. Tel: 01738 638822, www.cal­lumwalker.com

A ubiq­ui­tous word for our times, ‘lux­ury’ is used to sell ev­ery­thing from cars to cos­met­ics. It’s how Laings de­scribe them­selves – as a re­tailer of lux­ury kitchens, bath­rooms and bed­rooms. Lux­ury is so much more than the prod­ucts they sell, it’s an ex­pe­ri­ence which is per­sonal to ev­ery cus­tomer. It’s an ethos which they em­body at ev­ery stage in the process, from the first show­room visit to the fi­nal project sign-off and af­ter­care. Ev­ery home should be unique to its owner and that’s why ev­ery kitchen, bath­room and bed­room Laings cre­ate is de­signed to the unique re­quire­ments of their cus­tomers.

Lux­ury needn’t be some­thing that breaks the bank, a sense of lux­ury is achieved by fo­cus­ing on nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als: woods, mar­ble and other stones, brasses and cop­pers. The jux­ta­po­si­tion of these dif­fer­ing ma­te­ri­als in an in­te­rior and their in­di­vid­ual aro­mas can bring about a sense of lux­u­ri­ous­ness that needn’t rely on brand cre­den­tials. &tra­di­tion, dis­played in Mo­leta Munro’s show­room, are cur­rently mas­ters of com­bin­ing nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als to cre­ate a so­phis­ti­cated look of lux­ury.

Be­ing able to es­cape to a per­sonal re­treat at the bot­tom of the gar­den is cer­tainly a lux­ury to trea­sure. In a spe­cially de­signed gar­den room, kit­ted out with Wi-Fi, sur­round sound, un­der­floor heat­ing, cof­fee ma­chine and fridge, the flex­i­bil­ity and in­dul­gence this space of­fers is su­perb. Per­fect as a work out, chill out, or party pad at home, these gar­den rooms of­fer su­perb qual­ity and the ul­ti­mate in lux­ury es­capism… or on the prac­ti­cal side they make a per­fect of­fice or work space.

For­merly as­so­ci­ated with tan­gi­ble sta­tus ob­jects, ‘lux­ury’ is now much more about unique ex­pe­ri­ences. This con­cept has now fil­tered through to in­te­rior de­sign with peo­ple want­ing their homes to be a unique re­flec­tion of their own per­sonal style. Be­spoke is the new lux­ury and it needn’t al­ways have the as­so­ci­ated ‘lux­ury’ price tag along with it. This is at the heart of what Cot­terell & Co’s new Rocke brand is about. Their cus­tomers can de­sign their own lamp­shades choos­ing from the mas­sive range of fab­rics and lin­ings or sup­ply their own fab­ric re­sult­ing in a to­tally unique prod­uct.
