Here at our Design Studio, we often seamlessly blend the outdoors with indoor spaces, fostering harmony and a deep connection to nature. Water, as an elemental force, holds a special place in our design philosophy, lending a sense of fluidity and grace to our creations. On today’s blog, join us as we delve into the myriad of ways we integrate water into our designs, both literally and symbolically.

We often use materials like glass, polished stone, and reflective surfaces to emulate the qualities of water, infusing rooms with a sense of movement and tranquillity. Shown below, Tony Cragg’s captivating piece ‘Constant Change’ graces the lobby at Haymarket Hotel. Its fluid form invites viewers on a contemplative journey, its shape-shifting with each rotation.

Incorporating water features into interiors not only adds visual intrigue but also provides a serene respite from urban chaos. At our Haymarket Hotel’s pool, the gentle murmur of water creates an oasis of calm amidst the city’s hustle and bustle.

Textures reminiscent of water—such as flowing fabrics and rippled patterns—find their place in upholstery, rugs, and wall coverings, imbuing spaces with a serene sophistication. Fermoie’s wave-patterned fabric, adorning our walls, envelops guests in sinuous comfort, inviting relaxation.

Artworks, sculptures, and accessories strategically placed throughout spaces reinforce the water theme, forging a deeper connection with nature. We’re particularly enamoured with Collin Millington’s stitch artwork, inspired by his sailor background, which infuses our spaces with fluidity and grace.

Whether through furniture, architectural elements, or décor items, our designs aim to create dynamic and inviting environments. We would love you to share your own experiences incorporating ‘Fluid Forms’ into your homes and projects on Instagram @kitkempdesignthread.

Our ‘Sailors Farewell’ china collection, with its whimsical tales of the sea depicted against watery backgrounds, adds a touch of folklore to any dining table or tea ceremony.
