Realising a vision
We take a look at a stunning project recently completed by interior design specialists, Iroka.
Situated on the Pentire Peninsula near Newquay, Fistral House from Legacy Properties enjoys an unrivalled position, just minutes from Fistral beach. The development features 10 luxurious apartments, each of which offers the very best in contemporary coastal living.

Interior specialist Iroka was briefed to design the interiors and to create a peaceful holiday home for Legacy’s clients, charged with selecting the furniture, lighting, floors and window dressings.
Iroka Flooring Manager, Zoe Polglase specified the flooring, choosing a stunning limed oak engineered wood that offers high levels of durability throughout the open plan living areas. In the bedrooms, Zoe completed the flooring with luxury wool carpets. Once the flooring was down, contemporary sheer curtains from Casadeco’s Zao collection were selected for the living areas, ensuring that nothing would distract from the beautiful ocean vistas, offering ease of living thanks to the installation of motorised tracks.
Bespoke curtains cut from statement fabrics were installed in each bedroom, while Iroka’s team of fitters added sheer roller blinds to offer privacy, adopting a neutral palette for all of the window dressings to co-exist with the interior scheme. This palette works effortlessly, especially with the reflective metallic accents and chunky wood table tops, and as a result, each room enjoys a feeling of lightness, which combines with the contrasting dark frames of the furniture and lighting to give a real sense of balance.
In the living areas, Iroka chose an accompaniment of textures to be highlighted in the loose furniture, using shimmering velvets in the sofas and rugs to subtly contrast against the oiled oak flooring. Leather dining chairs were then chosen for durability, with bespoke booth seating being installed to offer flexibility, complete with leather upholstered seating pads. Indeed, the zoned dining areas have been finished beautifully, with oak dining tables designed by Roberto Paoli stealing the show with their beautifully reflective bent glass pedestal bases
In each of the bedrooms, feature wallpapers in neutral tones and textures make for a calming atmosphere, whilst bespoke fitted headboards (complete with fitted electrical sockets) have been designed in a ‘hotel’ style’ to give a feeling of grandeur and luxury.
In all, it’s fair to say that with the help of the experts at Iroka, Legacy Properties have well and truly brought their vision to life, offering owners at Fistral House the very best in contemporary coastal living.
