Newport is a particularly lovely and serene suburb of the Northern Beaches. It’s quiet and slow paced, filled with a large array of delightful cafes and boutiques that sit just off the beach. Our clients have lived in their home for over 30 years and after several major renovations, were after a small revamp to the front living room.
The main focus for project was to be the fireplace. The clients would often have many visitors, so they longed for a large space to entertain in. With a particular fondness for mountain chalets and stone fireplaces, they requested something that would provide a similar impact whilst being appropriate to their beachside location.
The sandstone fireplace then informed the relaxed neutral palette for the rest of the space. Natural textures were offset by the graphic punches provided by the black and white table lamp and some printed cushions. The deep set lounges are the perfect spot to curl up on long lazy Sundays or to be filled with friends accompanied by wine and cheese on a cold winters night.
