Owners are particularly private individuals and many are reluctant to share their tastes in home furnishings, colour schemes and bathroom fittings with the wider world. But our trusty sister publication, SuperyachtDesign can always be relied upon to gain access to the areas others can’t, and 2013 was no different. Here is a selection of the most eye-catching interiors of the last 12 months.
The Baltic Yachts-built sloop, Inukshuk may only be 32.6m in length but that didn’t prevent British designer Adam Lay from creating an impressively spacious salon for this performance racer. Asked by the owner to create a space that mirrored a North American Lakeland area he was fond of, Lay commissioned a foam-cored, oak-covered dining table to be the focal point of the salon. In keeping with the naturalist theme, he used the same lightweight core material to produce three ‘stones’, which negate the need for an additional coffee table. “The idea is that when you’re sitting on the divan, the end stones are flat,” Lay explained. “His brief was for me to take cues – quite literally in some cases – from nature.”
