Reclaimed Timber Interior Design

I am about to start planning stage two of design and decoration for long time clients house. Just over a year ago we started on a barn conversion and extension down stairs and is job is now 80% complete. We just complete a bedroom with new enclosed balcony, floor sanding and waxing, and adding new skirting and architraves. We will then start on upstairs bedroom, bathroom and study/lounge. I am so excited to be doing the design planning over the next few weeks.  A extensive amount of reclaimed timber was used in the house for stage one and one of my greatest influences in the design world for this scheme was the very talent Architect and Interior Designer Bobby Mc Alpine. Below are a few images of rooms I only just found today where timber has been used as key element in the interior design of a house. We will be doing a similar thing on my job also. In fact the soft neutral palette with be almost the same. I think perfect for a barn conversion.
Enjoy the Photo courtesy of the very talented Bobby Mc Alpine.
Have a great week.

Love the raw feeling of the timber on the ceiling, doors and floor. All slightly different in colour and tone but so look right together.

I really warm to the use of linen, and other tactile materials in this room, it feels so relaxed, calming but at the same time very elegant, classic, contemporary and sharp.

Again such great use of timber on the ceiling and walls. Such wonderful simplicity but sophistication with the stone bench/slab, metal look vanity basin and antique oriental pot and mirror.


  1. Love this look, especially in the country. Gives such a warm, earthy quality to a space.

    1. Yes, Melinda,
      Totally agree. Neutrals can be so warm, nurturing, welcoming in a space. I love the texture you can add without it competing with other elements in the room but still providing another layer. Wish we did more of this in QLD.
