Coogee Residence


‘I wanted to embrace a look of casual elegance that appears effortless.’ – Jodie Carter

‘To walk through this freshly renovated duplex is to be enchanted by a serene beachside home that encapsulates the essence of relaxed Australian coastal style’ – Jackie Brygel, Inside Out Magazine

A beautiful family home located in the heart of Coogee
Our brief for this gorgeous client was to create a home with coastal sophistication.  My team and I were entrusted to design a space that was not only visually pleasing but suited this young growing family’s individual way of living with some wow factor and practical elements combined.
To embrace a look of casual beachside elegance that reflected the client’s stylish and chic, yet down to earth personality we kept it simple and added details such as VJ panelling, soft colours and neutral textures throughout. Sanding back the original hardwood flooring and staircase to showcase a lighter coastal finish was key in tying all the fresh new additions together.
Working closely alongside Quay Builders and InVogue Joinery, we were able to bring our vision to life, ensuring that all aspects of the design and renovation were executed with precision and efficiency.
