HP Residence

9 PHOTOS A staged renovation of the interiors of a 1960's residence. The look is modern with contemporary finishes and a retro twist. Stage one involved a makeover for teenage daughters bedroom and en-suite, followed by the kitchen, family bathroom and the two main living areas. Stage 3 is underway and includes the master bedroom, a second teen bedroom and recently completed en suite. Clients were happy to be completely guided by design selections suggested by Karen Aston Design and were able to make quick decisions once brief was taken and options shown via concept boards, samples, 3D rendered sketches and shopping trips. They wanted a home that was up to date and funky, they were tired of their lemon and navy kitchen, yellow and pink bathrooms! They requested warmth, texture, colour and comfort that would suite the architectural style of the home.

Karen Aston Design provided design services for the selection of all finishes, fixtures, fittings, joinery, custom window treatments and upholstered furniture. The clients wanted to create an elegant yet comfortable family home with traditional finishes and classic combinations that would be timeless. The palette selected achieves this design brief and allows for the addition of the client’s preferred accent colours of burnt orange and soft blue /greens or any other future accent colour to be favoured in the future.

The clients were open to the use of colour and a mix of natural materials to create a vibrant, interesting and unique interior. The colour palette of soft and deep charcoals, off whites and teal accents has depth and a moody, yet fresh quality. Custom joinery and upholstery, cladding the fireplace in local sandstone, unique lighting and commissioning a stunning, hand-crafted wall hanging make this home a talking point.

The kitchen space was enlarged to provide a spacious walk in butlers pantry and the window above the sink was elongated and reduced in height to allow for overhead cabinetry and a streamlined splash back window. A palette of soft green based greys, off whites and warm timbers was selected to link to the Australia native bush surrounds.
The family bathroom layout was changed to provide ample storage and and an organic curved, freestanding bathtub. A soft grey, limestone look, porcelain tile was used on the floor and walls, which are offset beautifully by crisp whites and the warmth of the oak timber vanity.
