Recently Completed Project-Beach Side Condo Marrakesh, Hua Hin
One thing that is clearly in evidence is our understanding of how to make a room comfortable.
Our success lies in taking a mixture of traditional and contemporary elements, not forgetting our gorgeous
neutrals, and creating a quietly glamorous, yet altogether cosy ambiance.
It was exactly this mix of style and luxury that attracted the owners of the condo to Siam Old Teak.
The clients wanted a cool, contemporary look which also needed to be comfortable and practical because
they have three young boys.
This transformation was easier said than done, given that the condo hadn't been touched for over four years.
All the floors were replaced with beautiful reclaimed teak. Fortunately the existing layout was fine, so
it was more a case of providing a totally new look and updating what was already there, a grande teak entrance
door and interior doors were replaced to freshen the look of the clients home. All the bathrooms were gutted and
new tiles fitted, new plumbing and beautiful custom made teak cabinets were set below granite tops.
The owners knew what they wanted, but didn't know how to execute it. They were very keen on taking
part in the sourcing and decision-making, and they didn't mind waiting for the perfect solution rather than buying
something locally for the sake of it.
It was a meticulousness that stretched to every last detail.
The kitchen which was installed four years ago had been consumed by termites. Siam Old Teak installed a bespoke
all-teak kitchen with Italian marble work tops, all the handles and soft close hardware being sourced from Hafele.
Expensive ? the same price that you would pay for a Rubber Wood, MDF/Veneered offering.
The condo is very relaxed and elegant, it's a wonderful beach house. Not showy at all, not a suit and tie experience,
but still very smart indeed. Much of the furniture is free standing rather than fitted. Opulence is there but is very
inconspicuous, and the overall look is super-elegant.
This creates a very relaxed atmosphere. Beautiful natural fabrics, neutral colour schemes predominate in the
main living space, progressing to subtle colour schemes in the bedrooms.
The combination of old teak and fabrics used is very successful and quite unique.
Our clients home has a simple, elegant interior with clean lines. It has a timeless elegance, but with
style and charm: low-key luxury at its ultimate, this is an intelligent interior without being too clever, and would appeal
to families and the super-duper bachelor.
We provided our client with a beautiful, un-clutterd functioning home, it can be expensive when you get the interior
designer in too late. We saved our clients stress, time and lots of money in allowing us to project manage
their condo refurbishment, interior design isn't just for the wealthy, it's for everyone"
