Effectively Eclectic

Set in 600 acres of countryside in Dumfries and Galloway in South West Scotland, the estate was built and landscaped in 1740. It is situated close to the towns of Whithorn; Scotland's earliest Christian settlement, Wigtown; Scotland's National Book Town and the coastal village of Garliesto and also organically farmed; producing Scottish Organic Milk and Aberdeen Angus beef. Reviewed in titles including The Sunday Times, Guardian and Independent, Galloway House is the ideal destination for style-savvy holiday-makers seeking a relaxing break.

The Estelle Chest of Drawers has been used in one of the four holiday cottages on the estate. Housed in converted 18th century stable courtyards and listed gate lodges, the rooms in each residence have been restored to reflect both the heritage of Dumfries and Galloway, and the latest in interiors style. A traditional yet on-trend look permeates each; recalling Atkin and Thyme’s own signature ‘classic contemporary’ aesthetic.  

A foil to the modern, minimalist countertop basin in the bathroom, the traditional outline and textured bone inlay of the handcrafted Estelle Chest of Drawers serves to heighten the design characteristics of both the sink and chest, resulting in a well-crafted and effectively eclectic look. Featuring multiple drawers which provide the storage which is so essential in bathrooms, the chest is a practical choice for wash spaces, but also ties in to a number of bathroom design movements.  The Pewter Grey shade is an on-trend tone for 2015/16 and incorporating furniture not solely intended for wash spaces is also en vogue, as more time is spent in the bathroom and an ambience conducive to relaxation, in addition to the functionality required for daily ablutions, is increasingly desired.
