The interior design inspiration I will be taking from the Air BnB I stayed at in Brighton



Last week we travelled to one of my favourite places Brighton just for a couple of days away and a little break. The air bnb we stayed in was absolutely beautiful so I wanted to share a few photos and the interior inspiration I will be taking forward into designing our next house.

- Mixing metals I would normally stick to one coloured metal for fixtures/ decoration but throughout the apartment there was a wide mix of brass,gold,gunmetal and silver that worked really well in creating a contrast on a real regency but eclectic modern style.

- Mix of surfaces - I loved the concrete work tops mixed with the old scaffolding boards, open brick, painted brick which made up the kitchen contrasted with the detailed tiles injecting a burst of colour. The mix of textures really adds depth and so much interest to the room.

-Lighting - I noticed even though it was such a bright open airy space there was lots of lighting, industrial mixed with modern bedside lights. I love how in the living space the lights help to zone off the areas and hung at different heights really show off the high ceilings. There was also strip lighting above the beams which added a bit of warmth to the high ceilings and open space.

- The bathroom was simply beautiful! I loved how the floor tiles were used as up stands this is something I would like to take forward as an idea in our next place. Again there is a real mix of styles with the modern bath and chrome fittings but then the paintings with gold frames add that old regency style making the room really contemporary.

- Artwork/furnishings - I loved the carefully selected art work throughout the apartment which injected bursts of colour to the blank walls but also tied in furnishings, for example the pop of orange in the chairs was mimicked in the cups and formed part of the large painting, this idea worked well in just tying the whole look together but still keeping the eclectic style.



You can see why I fell in love with this place! If you guys have stayed in any amazing air bnbs please share them with me! I am wanting to arrange looks of little trips across the country to gain inspiration and it just allows me to be super noisy and look at pretty houses.
