Case Study: Scandi-style new build in Wiltshire
By Victoria Smith
Oct 22, 2021
This fabulous Wiltshire pad is Nina Pethers’ eighth major property project, so it’s fair to say she and her husband know a thing or two about building houses... The fact they chose Bert & May tiles to use in no fewer than five of the rooms couldn’t be a bigger compliment. Here, Nina tells us what they did and why.
Full name: Nina Pethers
Occupation: I do my husband’s books, renovate my house, and spend quite a lot of time on Instagram and Pinterest!
Style and location of property: Scandi-style larch-cladded house in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside.
Who lives there: Myself, Mr P and my two westies Daisy and Lola (named after Marc Jacobs perfumes!)
How would you describe your interior style?
Modernist with a splash of heritage.
Tell us about your home…
It was a self-build project from scratch, and our eighth renovation/build!
Which Bert & May products did you use?
We have five rooms that feature Bert & May’s contemporary geometric encaustic tiles in an array of designs. We used Pink Pradenas in the master bedroom’s en-suite bathroom, plain hexagonal tiles in Forest Green in the downstairs cloakroom, Loredo grey in the utility area; Grey Santona in the upstairs guest room, and Green Split Shift Two in the downstairs bedroom’s en-suite bathroom.
Why did you choose them?
I chose them for their individuality and unusual shapes. The unique uncoated finish complements the white walls that we have throughout the home.
What you think they add to the space?
They make a real eye-catching statement - they always get an amazing response when I post a room with them in on Instagram!
What led you to use Bert & May?
As well as creating beautifully finished products with standout designs, the Bert & May team has been extremely friendly and supportive throughout my build journey.
