Transforming a tired and outdated interior of a two-bedroom holiday unit on Belongil Beach,
just outside of central Byron Bay was our brief, in its place we created a tropical
haven with a sophisticated take on coastal living. Using accents of tropical and tribal luxe, we wanted the to create an interior
that was in-synch with the laid back, yet vibrant Byron Bay lifestyle.
Because there was minimal natural light through the main living space, it was important to keep both furnishings and
walls as light as possible to brighten the space. To brighten the entire apartment,
I had the interior freshly painted in Dulux - White on White, and the colour scheme was kept fresh with layers
of neutral textures and tones in luxe greens and midnight blues from the ocean beyond.
The addition of two large and stunning mirrors bounced more valuable daylight around the unit,
and reflected the luscious greenery outside into the apartment. When choosing the furniture,
I looked for a mix of white and natural rattan, earthy timber tones in oak, and natural blondes – elements that are synonymous with coastal living interiors. To set the open-plan living space of and create the important ‘wow factor’, I placed statement pendants around the room. Outside, the day bed was repainted, and I created a bespoke seat pad
and cushions in warwick outdoor fabrics. All of the products were sourced locally or from interstate.
