Lusso x Border Build – A luxury self build home

Located in the rural surroundings of the Welsh countryside, this magnificent self-built home is a dream come true with breathtaking views of nature and an ambience of pure tranquillity. The calm, serene setting of the interior mirrors its beautiful surroundings. A less is more mantra is embraced throughout the decor of this minimal Scandi design with a neutral colour palette and simplistic accessories. 

Mirroring the luxury ethos of Lusso, Gemma’s self-built home consists of three beautiful bathrooms that all boast simple elegance and are proudly supplied with Lusso sanitaryware and brassware. Our favourite room of this stunning home is the main bathroom. Featuring our Floorstanding Bath Tap and Monaco Freestanding Bath with incredible views of woodland. What more could you want than to indulge in a hot soaking bathtub surrounded by the peacefulness of nature. Followed by a second luxury bathroom, situated in the garage annex, supplied with our Ethos Wall Hung Basin and Matte Black Monobloc Tap, and lastly a WC that is compact in size but huge in impact, featuring our brushed gold brassware.

Can you give us some background on your home and your initial inspirations for its design?

“We bought the land with outline planning permission with a dream of building a house in the area my husband grew up in. We wanted to bring up our four children in a place which would allow them to roam in a peaceful, rural setting. We also wanted the house to blend in with its surroundings and the interiors to edge towards a simple design to allow the views to do the talking.”

When designing the bathrooms, what was your main aim and where did you source inspiration?

“Most of the inspo for our bathrooms came from instagram. Lusso stone fitted the bill with its clean lines and affordable prices.”

What influenced your decision to create a self-built home?

“We chose to build our home as we couldn’t find anything we liked within our budget and building from scratch meant we could build the home the way we wanted within budget. Also our last home was strikingly beautiful and old but we dreamed of luxuries such as underfloor heating and lots of glass in order to max out the views of our surroundings.”

What was it that made you choose Lusso and what is your favourite Lusso product?

“Clean lines, simple design, and affordable prices. Matte black accessories and brassware are great quality and easy to keep clean. The bath is a real statement piece too.”

How did you find the service when dealing with Lusso?

“It can be difficult ordering online as you can’t visualise, touch or feel the product until it arrives, but the service has been great overall.”
