Décor Inspiration: Refined Beach Style in Sydney, Australia
Tuesday 18th October, 2016
by Louise Keane
This week’s décor inspiration is the latest renovation project from a trio of stylish Australian women whose business is called ‘Three Birds Renovations’—and with a name as refreshingly witty as that, you may also guess by now that these savvy renovators are bringing a fresh take on developing tired properties.
You can see a host of detailed photographs and jaw-dropping before and after images of the projects on their website and they also bring each renovation to life with video episodes which tell even more of the story.
Each project is different but you can expect wonderfully bright open plan spaces where family life can be lived oh so stylishly. You can also expect great lighting; blush pink velvet and weathered wood; a delectable colour palette with lots of ice cream tones; styling details to love and to borrow; the best outdoor spaces which allow life to spill out into the open air; and signature large kitchen windows which open up fully to allow those sitting outside to enjoy the space from a stool perched on the other side.
Australia may enjoy a warmer climate than some of us experience, but there is certainly no shortage of design details here which you can borrow—wherever you live—to bring this elegant and refined take on beach style into your home . . . —Louise
