shoal bay, new south wales
A Sydney based family wanting a coastal retreat in the beach side town of Shoal Bay, Port Stephens.
To create a relaxing and inviting contemporary coastal home that could also be rented out for holiday makers.
Interior Design and Styling
The client’s vision was to modernise their holiday home to bring a contemporary coastal look and feel to the entire house so that it might be enjoyed by their family and others looking for a sea side escape.
The exisiting home was in need of an update as the dark walls, heavy curtains and stark white tiled floors made the home feel cold and clinical.
To create a fresh and modern feel a neutral colour palette was introduced. The walls were painted in Dulux Quarter Lexicon and new natural coloured sheer curtains and block outs blinds were installed to soften the space.
All new furniture and decor was purchased for the home, using materials and colours that tied in with the style such as timber, rattan, jute and linen to create a relaxed and welcoming environment.
The end result is a relaxing and modern coastal retreat that reflects their interior style and the beach side location of the home.
‘It was such a great experience working with Michelle.
From the start of the project to the finish, she went above and beyond to help us with colour choices, furniture and decor selections all the way to styling our home.
We’re so pleased with the finished spaces and all our friends and neighbours comment how much they like it as well.
I can’t thank Michelle enough for everything she has done for us. It’s been a pleasure working with her and we’re very happy with the end result.’
