Gymea Bay Residence

There is quite a back story to how this project came together for my clients and their young family. We started work on a 'knock down' rebuild to create a Hamptons Style home for them originally. When circumstances changed and an amazing opportunity came their way to purchase this home, they made the brave decision to abandon ship on the previous design and start again. What evolved is this beautiful, comfortable, warm family home. It is Coastal, Classic, Contemporary and Hamptons all mixed together.

We had some challenges getting our heads around working with a warm existing colour palette with travertine and timber joinery in the home. As originally our heads were in greys, whites and floorboards from the Hamptons home design. The contemporary style of architecture was another test that we ultimately embraced. Adding layers of texture with different fabrics, carpets and rugs, lots of styling and timeless classic furniture pieces pulled it all together. With a generous sprinkling of my favourite colours blue and green and anything in between. You can now see the results for yourself, its absolutely beautiful and very much loved and lived in by the family and all that visit.
