CONTINUITY AND SIMPLICITY
When Toni and John decided to knock down the original old fibro home and rebuild on their block of land, they felt very strongly about creating a home that suited the character of the town. But while it was important to them to honour the old beachside feel of Lennox Head, it was just as essential their new home was modern and suited their holiday lifestyle.
“The building codes were quite strict, and we planned our home for about five years to get the balance just right,” says Toni. Luckily, all their goals were achieved with the right choices in design and decorating. For example, continuity of colours and materials achieved the right look, while outdoor zones make the yard space practical and liveable. “I love that we used the same tiles inside and out,” she says. “We didn’t complicate things with too many different elements, and it’s worked well. I think it looks so luxurious.”
Toni also had clear ideas about creating functional, attractive outdoor spaces that flow beautifully from the indoor rooms. “I wanted to use lots of glass to achieve seamless integrated indoor-outdoor living environments,” she explains. The muted palette works in the same way, as do retractable glass stacker doors, while furniture and accessories set up distinct nooks for eating, relaxing and showering.
Well planned It’s just a short hop from beach to pool via shower to rinse off the sand. Perfect! GREAT IDEA Hooks and racks for swim and surfing essentials.
