Pursuing a New England-style aesthetic, this one-bedroom guesthouse is warm, layered and intentionally full to the point of appearing pleasingly ‘cluttered’. A palette of navy, walnut and white was chosen as the backdrop to key pieces from Ralph Lauren, bringing a ‘country estate’ feel in keeping with the striped sofa and brown leather chairs.
‘Stripped’ by Greg Natale produces the same carbon footprint in its entire lifetime that you create in just 40 hours. ‘Stripped’ pays tribute to the work of minimalist architects Claudio Silvestrin and John Pawson.
