Couple combine lot of luxury with a heritage touch
With design concepts garnered from old mills, an English couple has achieved a style mix rarely found on the Gold Coast market
INSPIRED by old cotton mills in England, homeowners Paul and Lynn Mattison have proven that industrial design can be glamorous.
The couple said the idea for the bold and beautiful design came from converting old cotton mills into trendy apartments in the late 80s.
“We are originally from Manchester and after we did the cotton mill project we have been obsessed with playing with old and new concepts since,” Mrs Mattison said.
The English expats, who run PM Concepts, said the renovation at 50 The Promenade took them eight months.
Mrs Mattison said she wanted the house to have a sense of age combined with New York loft style but said it was difficult to buy heritage on the Coast.
“We found reclaimed bricks from Melbourne that still had original branding on them,” she said.
