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

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - AUCTION -

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.
