Home of Jacinta Platt

An eclectic group of artwork, artifacts and random items adorn 60 Seaside Drive. If you are directed to a large brass crocodile head the mickey mouse figure that lives in the kitchen may take your fancy.

This project was difficult ... as It was my own home and I was the hardest client to please with the worst budget!

Back bedrooms did not become a priority in terms of spending as I always advise my clients the budget should be divided into the areas you spend most your time such as living, dining and master. So we got creative and used things such as vintage suitcases as a bedside table. A old tea-chest another bedside table but ensured the art whether it be framed artworks or an aboriginal painting had colour, life and personality to bring the room together.

The living room feature is the gorgeous artwork by Shayle Flesser ... one of my first ever purchases of original artwork. The colours and strength are repeated through the rug, scatter cushions and coffee table. It’s a combination of timber, marble and upholstery. The custom made buffet was made from recycled timber offcuts, so giving the space so much texture to work with.

The entry is strong with a large black wall telling a story of different artworks, styles and representations of my husband and I.

The floor plan of this home was based around having a close pool that when the day came we could be in the living room or kitchen watching over children in the pool.

The one story home is casual, easy and low maintenance, its very practical in we don't have alot of wasted space. This home was the first we designed and built together and although we think its perfect we are ready to go again and endeavour on another project together trialing new finishes, ideas and creations!

This project was featured on the cover (and inside) of Queensland Homes magazine, issue Spring/Summer 2018/19.

Palm Beach, Sydney Residence

Coastal, Comfortable and Livable are most certainly the key components to this house. With all the living dining, Master and Alfresco on one level the home is open and modern. With European oak flooring custom upholstery and the stone fireplace this residence is as stunning interanlly as the beautiful Palm Beach outlook. 

Hillcrest

Set atop a hill this recently built duplex in Coolangatta was created with intention of housing a young family one side and selling the other.

With a great outlook the view was such a feature, the furniture and finishes were to remain neutral, modern and family friendly. 

Modern Manor

This family home on the Gold Coast had a huge makeover when both the clients and I decided to gut the entire home and open the whole space up. Adding bi-fold doors and a large living and dining room meant this young family had more than enough space to entertain, hang and play.

Dutton Street Residence

Colour, Texture and quirk are the main contributing factors to this eclectic Coolangatta home. The Grass weave wallpaper combined with the over dyed Turkish rug create an interesting space. This room features so many cool key pieces such as the concave mirrors or hand made vintage bowling pins there is personality in every inch of the space.

Beech Lane

This Casuarina family home was completed in 2016. This beach front property was a eclectic mix of styles to match a young artistic family.

We incorporated natural timbers, tan leather and a mix of metal finishes to create a contemporary beach front family home.

New Arrival

It was with great anticipation this nursery was set up. Whilst waiting for the new arrival the sex of baby remained unknown so using natural colours along with a fresh white base we made a mini sanctuary for both mother and baby. Cane furiniture, striped wallpaper and Animal prints work together to add personality and interest whilst keeping the space calm and soothing.

Royal Pines

Elegance through the use of chrome accents were coupled with bright sunshine toned features in this gated community home. We were able to create a spacious yet cosy space that welcomed all who visited the Robina Parkway Home.

Longboard Circuit

Situated in Salt, Kingscliff this Hampton themed home showcases the traditional Coastal colour palette of ocean blues mixed with Sandy neutrals.

Layers of linen and light timber furniture are relaxed yet classic and inviting.
