Modern Beach House
MODERN BEACH HOUSE
Having just completed a modern kitchen update to her waterfront apartment, the owner realised the lounge/dining area needed a refresh as well! The existing timber table and dining chairs were to remain, and we were to replace everything else. The client had seen the artwork online and I used that as a starting point for the rest of the design; the colours tying in nicely with the new kitchen, existing timber dining table, and the blues linking to the ocean view.
As the new kitchen is clean and modern, the adjacent dining and lounge room need to match the design aesthetic. For the concept, I incorporated textures and natural colours you find at the beach. (I love the unique rattan cushion I had come across in an online research session, but then located the real thing at the Alfresco Emporium store in Collaroy, if you are looking for one for your own beach house!) Armchairs always seem to be a design challenge. There are so many options out there, but like Goldilocks... none of them are quite right! After much searching, we found the perfect pair in the end. Similar to the timber frame chair in the concept image, these chairs are comfortable, easy to get out of, and we had them covered in a gorgeous denim blue basket weave fabric. This project is almost completed, so photography is the next step! Will share all the beautiful products with you soon...
