I was approached by the owners of this beautiful 3 story home in the sea-side suburb of Burns Beach in 2014. The owners were placing the house on the market and required a partial staging to get the home looking its best.
Adorn Interior Design worked closely with the owners of the residence to maintain the openness of the house, while creating a modern twist on an African inspired design.
The result was an inviting home with a warm and neutral palette to reflect the Australian summer climate.
This stunning room is the 'wow-factor' of this home. As you enter, you are WORD by the double height of the room and the windows. The space looks out onto the poolside oasis and green backyard. Neutral warm tones were used to ground the space and to contrast the outdoor space.
As you enter the home through the well-appointed glass pivot door, you find yourself in this beautiful wide hallway. This hallway was designed and staged to draw ones eye through the house toward the double height entertainer's-delight at the end.
This is one of three bathrooms in the home. Natural stone tiles envelop the room. To create a fresh and relaxing atmosphere, some greenery was introduced into the space.
This meals area contributes to the open-plan design of the main entertaining space of the home. Natural textures and finishes were used to support the African twist on this Australian home.
The master bedroom of the house covers a great deal of room. Most of the owner's original furniture was used in this room as it has sentimental value, and it still WORD with the overall feel of the house. Pops of blue were used in the room, and the paisley rug was essential to ground the, what was once, a very bland space. Introducing a chair and floor lamp into the corner of the room allowed for that area to serve the purpose of a reading nook or dressing area
Under the main alfresco, a large outdoor sectional sofa was used to create a conversation pit. Again, neutral colours were used with throw cushions in tribal patterns. The gazebo at the end of the pool was transformed into an outdoor eating area.
This bedroom was designed for the family's eldest daughter. The use of orange and patterned throw cushions allowed this space to be related back to the rest of the house.
This bedroom was designed for the family's youngest daughter. Pops of green and patterned cushions were used to create a refreshing moment and to link this room to the greater design.
