Kitchen, dining & deck
A seemingly endless expanse of concrete flooring, together with a smart open layout, unites the kitchen with the living and dining areas. Beyond the dining zone, sliding doors open to an unstained hardwood deck, which is the ideal place to catch some rays. A white Acapulco chair, found at Kiitos Living By Design, and accessorised with printed-art cushions by Clare O’Donoghue, invites time out.
In the kitchen, swathes of zebrawood timber veneer (seek similar from Top Veneer) are punctuated by an inky-hued glass splashback.
Floor-to-ceiling windows provide a slick contemporary aesthetic, as well as a permanent view of the garden.
Featuring an organic textured finish, the home’s rammed-earth walls are made from a compacted, durable mix of natural raw materials such as sand, clay and gravel.
A colour-drenched artwork by Clare O’Donoghue instantly commands attention, while the timber dining table is a statement in functional elegance; seek similar from Pad Furniture.
The long back deck is broken up by a charming pond, completing a quiet nook where the family can catch up their reading. The daybed, topped with cushions from Rigby’s Homewares, is another major drawcard. It catches the sun and it’s great for a nap.
A folding glass door connects the ensuite to the bedroom for a dash of hotel style. As such, the deep inset tub (get this look with the Hoesch ‘Foster’ double-ended inset bath from Reece) shares the bedroom’s picturesque bushland views. ‘Satin’ ceramic wall tiles in Lime from Johnson Tiles inject refreshing colour into the otherwise all-white space.
The airy master bedroom proves that vibrant colour can indeed be restful. Fresh white walls and neutral-hued wool carpet are brightened by cheery printed-art cushions by Clare O’Donoghue and a large orange cushion from Aura By Tracie Ellis. Splashes of jade green come via a throw (find similar at Domanye) and modern ‘O’ lamp from Reduxr. The room’s lovely view of nature only adds to the sense of tranquility.
