Designer’s Brief: Briar York

We invite a designer to create a room to best display each of the four artworks we've selected. This issue, industry-leading interior designer Brooke Aitken takes up the challenge.

Briar York’s layered landscape evokes a mood reminiscent of lazy days spent poolside in a cabana offering a serene ambiance perfect for both indoor and outdoor settings, such as a conservatory or sunroom. The painting provides a window onto nature, a snapshot of a dreamy part of the day where warmth turns slowly into the cool of the eve. Imagine the intricate rattan detailing of Sika’s Teddy Lounge chair, paired with the timeless elegance of the C317 chair from Feelgood Designs, and the stunningly unique melted glass coffee table from Paola Lenti’s Sciara Mottainai collection. An open shelving unit, such as the Tide Design Tana finishes the scene, able to be adorned with an array of hanging plants to continue the exterior feel.
