A Perfect Blend of Chic Minimalism

Pie Media Group Publisher’s cottage now has a modern appearance that is down to earth and soothing with decor that adds much needed warmth.
With timeless adaptable furniture, this restyle was transformed to suit the cottage without overwhelming the visual context of the space. The design considers materials and processes in order to minimize the environmental impact. Clean lines, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance.

 

PURE AND ORIGINAL PAINT

Ecologically and sustainably produced natural paint composed of hydrated quicklime and natural pigments.

 

ART IN BLOEM

A synthesis of Laurie and Nemo’s great passion for design and extensive experience. They brought healing properties into the cottage that are easy to keep alive bringing some of the desert’s vast, wild and free spirited vibes.

BARRIE REGIONAL GLASS

VINTAGE VINYL

Durable and certified non-slip with a tough tactile surface, notable designs, and signature vintage character. Each pattern has a distinct feel inspired by the past.
Phthalate free and easy to clean with a damp cloth and water. With proper care, can be used in outdoor settings exposed to rain, such as a covered porch. We embraced the existing floor by layering these amazing floor cloths throughout the cottage.

 

ADORNE COLLECTION

Switches that dim. Outlets that pop. Lighting that responds to the tap of a smartphone. The adorne collection by Legrand combines the world’s most innovative light switches and charging solutions with an array of stylish and custom finishes. From ordinary to extraordinary, inside and out – welcome to a brighter home.
