Beachside Bliss- A Coastal Getaway that Ticks All the boxes
On Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula sit many beautiful homes within equally beautiful townships. With no shortage of luxury homes on the market, it was this gem that caught the eye of Satara’s (a luxury furniture and homewares company) owners, Colleen and Andrew. With a refined eye, they could predict this would be the perfect weekender with some minor tweaks and many, many pieces from their wonderful and extensive collection of products.
A fresh take on the home was applied, with style notes taken from both their own range of products and their love of travel. In particular, the Mediterranean vibe was sought. A relaxed, effortless and comfortable interior with a focus on a tonal palette and heavy on texture. Flooring Xtra was happy to come on board to provide a flooring solution to meet both their aesthetic and practical requirements. After all, a holiday home should look great but not be precious. With the proximity to the beach and love of the outdoors, the home needed to respond to these demands.
Azolla carpet in Corin was the perfect carpet for the upstairs living spaces and bedroom. The textured loop pile is incredibly tactile while also being practical with its solution dyed nylon fibre. Teamed back with soft linen bedding, light timbers and minimal adornments, the spaces are relaxing and don’t detract from the tea trees swaying in the breeze out of the generously proportioned windows.
Merseyside XXL hybrid flooring in Crosby Oak runs throughout the living spaces into the kitchen. As a waterproof product, the flooring seamlessly runs from the front door to the back with no concerns of damage in both the kitchen and wet feet off the beach. The cool tones of the boards highlight the Mediterranean look and feel while being incredibly hardwearing and easy to care for. The perfect solution. To soften the hard flooring in places, Flooring Xtra rugs were selected to compliment. Like another of their tasteful accessories, the rugs were chosen to add interest but also bring comfort underfoot.
The home is a real pleasure to be in. The low-key floor plan, the pared-back palette and the considered restraint when it comes to the furniture allow the garden and surrounds to be the star. This, however, does not take away from the beauty of the interior. Each space, finish and fitting was chosen with care and will be a well-loved weekender for many years to come.
