Basic human instincts guide us all to search for a strong and secure shelter to reside in. On an emotional level the chunkiness and solid character of a timber frame home creates the sensation of an indestructible sanctuary, making us feel at home.
With a look like no other home the strong architectural characteristics of timbers encourages the use of vibrant colours and bold textures within the interior finishes. This is what fuels our passion and admiration for timber frame homes, because it allows us to help the client express their taste in a more definite way.
Just like each person is different and unique from the next person, so is every piece of timber. This means in a timber frame home the wood structure becomes the soul, creating a dominant architectural element from which every other element in the home is designed around. This allows the client to be creative and outgoing with the finishes to make their home truly custom to their individual tastes.
The bold characteristics of a timber frame home allows the designer infinite possibilities when adding beautiful craftsmanship details throughout the home.
As per the seating area image above a coffee table was required to match the level of character and feel cohesive with the thick timbers and vast openness of the space. The coffee table above was custom designed and made of reclaimed wood materials to reflect similar characteristics of the timber beams.
Rich finishes, like the ones in this powder room image create a unique ambiance which allowed for Kevin Gray Interiors to incorporate an antique tractor tire rim to be re-used creating an overall rustic and one-of-a-kind look which no one else has.
It is really important in a timber home to create a cohesive flow of colours, textures and materials which unite the exterior and interior of the home.
From concept to completion Kevin Gray Interiors can help make your space as rare and unique as you are.
