If you love Hamptons style mixed with clean & contemporary Australian living then this is the perfect house for you to swoon over.

This beautiful home belongs to a client of mine who started her own blog about designing and building their families “forever” home.

I worked with them to create the exterior colour scheme. It is one of my all time favourite exterior projects and it looks even better in real life.  Another client recently sent a picture of this house to me as her inspiration, not realising it was one of my schemes {what a lovely compliment}. The owners have had wonderful feedback on the exterior colours.

{I will add more exterior photos on the end of the post}

 Louise, the owner and professional photographer {check out her amazing work here} has a great sense of style and proportion. It is the attention to detail, like the trellis wallpaper and the X inserts in the sideboard above that take each space from beautiful to fabulous.  The symmetry of the two lamps is balanced well by the round mirror.

And then there is the kitchen…. sigh


It is quality over quantity in this kitchen.  Simple but sophisticated, again with attention to details. The use of dark wood, marble, stone and white cabinetry give the kitchen that Hampton style, but the hero of the kitchen are those glass hurricane pendants.


They have nailed the bench seating with Thonet Bentwood bar stools in dark wood.  They slip  under the bench top not causing any visual impact and blend seamlessly into the island cabinetry.

A slab of Carrara Marble was used as the splash back with the bench tops in stone. Its great to see a mix of materials and always a great idea if you love a slab or marble but not big enough to do your whole kitchen. Some people prefer the more hard wearing engineered stone on their kitchen worktops.


Large dining table works perfectly for entertaining and everyday meals for this family of 5. The Bentwood chairs continue the dark wood theme and elegant style.

The living room ticks all the boxes, comfort, style, texture and great furniture arrangement. If you have ever wondered how to position a rug in your living room, this is an ideal example.  A living room rug should always be present where ever your feet fall when sitting on a sofa.  The rug should be positioned at least under the front feet if not back a 1/3 under the sofa. It should also come out to the side (10cm + is ideal)

Louise has added a few touches of blue and green with cushions & objects on the shelves. The room is awash with neutrals but the dark rug and sandstone tiled fireplace anchor this space.

This gorgeous master bedroom repeats the fresh colour palette of the home, taupes, whites, timber and blues.  Love the colour and style of this bedhead, it sums up the feel of this space, stylish, elegant and timeless.

Here are some more images of the exterior to get a look at a few more angles.

What a gorgeous home!

Just for the record, the left side wall is the same colour as the render under the windows, its just a shadow.
