Like a sea shell

The designer says “Looking directly out to Bondi Beach, this residence captures the very essence of Sydney’s beachside living. Filled with natural light, a palette of muted tones draws in the ocean without competing with the view.

The spaces have a luxurious easiness to them. Materials were selected based on their tactile qualities; kitchen benches are a crackled ceramic, the timber joinery has a raw feel and soft-coloured concrete floors are cool underfoot. The interior spaces flow into one another but thresholds are expressed with deep timber architraves. The result is a residence that captures the colour and easy spirit of Bondi Beach.”

I say the curves and spirals along with the hints of blush pink remind me of a sea shell and as it overlooks Bondi Beach I’m sure if you put your ear up against a wall you will hear the sea. Beach House by Richard Stanisich.

Anne says:

Love the use of curves in this house, makes it so relaxing.

Blanders says:

That pink bathroom is a bit of a love it or hate it scenario.

Personally it’s a look I’d call Caravan Park Chic. Whether a person thinks that’s a Terrible Thing or an example of Edgy Cool is proportional to the chances of that person ever being stuck in an actual caravan park.

Also of note: the ‘Failed Attempt to Get a Crime Scene Out of a Rug’ rug in the living room, and the ‘”Very Dark Green and Very Pale Blue Go Really Well Together!” Said No One Ever’ kitchen.
