Everyone needs a refresh in their lives. The new Owners of Lady Petra, which we originally designed for Frans and Petra Heesen (of that parish), asked us to give her a new look. Our original interior paid homage to Frans’s industrial heritage, with strong geometric forms and confident use of exposed metalwork,
and some bold veneers which could hold their own.

A general toning-down was the brief and we set to work with a muting frame of mind : replacing some of the stronger leathers and metal details with cooler, and more restrained alternatives. We added a sports bar to the already dramatic theatre room, and replaced the TV with an even larger one.

Almost all the loose furniture and fabrics were changed, including new B&R “Oceana” furniture by Sutherland for exterior spaces.

The new Owners had some great art as counterpoints to our new interior look, not least Blue Dog, gazing aft across the Dining and Main Saloon.
We love Blue Dog.
