Our plans for Perle Oban
If you’re anything like us you will relish the opportunity to redecorate – and what better project to work on than a classic piece of Victorian architecture? We want to highlight Oban’s Victorian opulence by blending in fresh, modern designs. So here’s a little taste of what we have in store…
We want to highlight the fascinating history of this hotel and the surrounding town. As Oban boomed in the Victorian era, it is this style that we want to capture in the interiors. This is why we’ve chosen to keep the building’s beautiful original features. Experience Victorian splendour as you spot our original entrance tiles, vintage hardwood floors, and the original iconic columns.
We want to revitalise the building with some modern twists to complement the classic interiors that make Oban so unique. So we’ve decided to reflect the wild beauty of the surrounding seascape as inspiration for our decor. Imagine an expanse of blues, natural materials, and rich textures so you can enjoy decor inspired by the dramatic surrounding landscape without even needing to leave the comfort of your room.
With such a wealth of activities available in Oban and the surrounding areas, adding a touch of the outdoors seemed like an obvious choice. We’ll be using a variety of woods throughout the property and will focus on rich earthy colours such as deep browns, muted yellows, earthy greens, and flourishes of copper and gold.
The best bit about designing the interiors of a property like this are the finishing touches. The cushions, the light fittings, the chairs, the curtains. Everything will tie together with a mixture of classic vintage features and elegant modern accessories. Keep an eye on our journal to watch our vision for Oban unfold and let it become the inspiration for your perfect Skye escape.
So there’s a little taste of what to expect from Perle Oban when it opens in May 2016. We are having such an amazing time restoring this place, and with a little time and a lot of love we will be ready to reopen our doors to the public.
