An update from our project in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The Retrouvius Design studio are doing the interiors of this rare Georgian building that looks out over the southernmost peninsular on the Isle of Harris.
"Be Resourceful — a sustainable renovation requires some creative thinking, and Retrouvius uses reclaimed materials in ways that really make them sing in the context of the overall decoartive scheme. Use what is available, even locally. Embrace serendipity, reuse a material you love and find a way of building it into your design. For example, if you have an overspill of reclaimed hardwood for parquet floors, repurpose it for drawers, panelling or even up cupboard fronts so it can be enjoyed at eye height and chime with different areas of a room"
