The West Nest
Nest Contracts supplied a selection of timeless designs that transformed this luxury holiday cottage into a haven of comfort and relaxation for guests.
The project focused on creating a calming atmosphere where guests can unwind and connect with nature. Timeless furniture and lighting were carefully selected to create an uncluttered space with a feeling of homeliness and warmth.
In the dining room, Carl Hansen & Son CH24 Wishbone chairs create an inviting place to sit, with an &Tradition Flowerpot VP7 Pendant Light providing targeted illumination. A Menu JWDA Table Lamp and Menu Bottle Grinders were also used in the dining space.
Natural oak finishes complement the oak floors and add warmth to the otherwise monochromatic scheme. The pieces in the home were chosen to stand the test of time, their great quality meaning they can be enjoyed by many guests for years to come.
Nest Contracts worked closely with owner Gordon Shaw to supply well-priced Danish designs to this remote corner of Skye, successfully navigating delivery challenges posed by Brexit.
“When we were sourcing interior pieces for our new holiday cottage The West Nest, we knew the team at our namesake Nest.co.uk would spoil us for choice with their impeccable selection of design icons.
Once we landed on our final choices, Business Development Consultant Gemma helped us bring our vision to life and worked with us to meet our tight delivery timescales, even to our remote wee corner of Skye. Thank you, Gemma, and Nest.co.uk!” Owner, Gordon Shaw.
More about Skye Cottage
“In our remote corner of Skye, Mother Nature decides whether you’ll be out exploring or having a day in the house with a book and the log burner on. We wanted to create a space where if you end up spending the better part of your week inside the house, it still feels like a calming place to watch the weather pass by, rather than feeling ‘stuck’ in the house.” Owner, Gordon Shaw.
Skye Cottage is a luxury holiday home, nestled into a secluded west-facing spot high in Glendale at the far western corner of Skye. The west-facing living spaces have far-reaching views down the glen, where you can sit comfortably and watch the sun go down behind North Uist at the end of a day’s exploration.
The house was completely refurbished in summer 2021 and has two king bedrooms and two bathrooms, a generous kitchen, boot room, open plan living/dining space and a large deck with a fire-pit.
This home is the perfect getaway for couples who are slow travellers, wanting to dive into the nature surrounding Skye.
