Based on the sunny central coast of NSW, Rachael and Andrew from Loverdeamers built their dream home. Flooring plays a major roll in any home acting like a backdrop that ties in the home.
Coastal Cottage Project
Part 2 captures the flooring being laid in the Coastal Cottage. Loverdreamers Rachael and Andrew chose our AquaLife in our ‘Tamar Valley oak’ from our extensive hybrid range to be laid on all the living and wet areas. AquaLife was the perfect flooring solution for a young family. Affordable with rich textures of timber, scratch and indentation resistant. AquaLife is perfect for the busy family home. Waterproof, pet-friendly and life-friendly.
In the bedroom, the Loverdreamer picked our Urban Instinct 100% wool carpet Stockholm ‘Kalmar’ from paddock to floor, this 100% wool carpet takes inspiration from the raw elements of nature, with all the quality and refinement required to complement a beautiful interior. Rachael and Andrew selected this carpet to emulate the luxurious comfort the home was striving for.
Rachael and Andrew show off their completed styled Coastal Cottage home. Paired with the mid-toned hybrid flooring, the Loverdreamers added a mixture of other timbers to upkeep with the theme of texture.
The bedrooms are styled with attention to luxury and comfort. With our Dunlop, 100% recycled EnviroTred Underlay laid under the wool carpet, the feeling under is foot and nothing with comfortable. Flooring Xtra stores are actively supporting a recycling program with Dunlop Australia, whereby underlay material removed from your home is recycled. $1 from every roll sold is donated towards Planet Ark’s National Recycle Program.
“We wanted to create a home that was modern but still had character and fitted in with the older cottages that remain in this little fishing village” says Rachael from Loverdreamers.
The flooring acts as a backdrop to all the styling in each room, tieing in the room into one piece.
Open plan living connects the family area, this space opens up the home allowing a small area seem large and spacious.
Loverdreamer’s bring in the coastal element with colour. With plenty of greenery and mint colour decor the home on the inside feels just like the location on the outside.
Mixing and matching different tones of timber is very coastal and on trend. Loverdreamers styled their space using a variety of textured and toned timbers to bring the nature into their home.
