A beach house owned by a family-focused retired couple, engaged Tennille Joy Interiors to refresh the dark and dated house. What started off as adding an extra wing for two bedrooms, turned into a full renovation inside and out. Located on the hills of Mount Martha in the state of Victoria, this home benefits from the green landscapes sweeping to the water views.
During the briefing process, the clients leaned on the side of a warm colour palette, favouring a ‘Hamptons’ style, yet adapted with an Australian native twist.
Muted eucalyptus greens, soft blues, warm terracotta, natural oak and fresh white set the tone for the colour scheme. The term ‘Australian Hamptons’ was adopted for the project.
The 15 year old beach house was overdue for a renovation, especially with the new arrival of their twelfth grandchild. The clients requested a multi-purpose space for one to curl up and read a book or for the grandkids to sit on the carpet and solve a puzzle together. As this space is opposite the front door, it’s a place to pause and take in the view.
