Hailing from Melbourne, the owners undertook an extensive search to find the perfect location which encompassed expansive water views, was close to everything Noosa is famous for and yet secluded enough to afford them the privacy they were wanting. For them, Noosa Waters – and Gail Hinkley Design for the interior design – ticked all the boxes.
Originally designed and constructed by well known local builder Paul Cooper, this near-new home featured four bedrooms and a large open plan living area which then opened up onto the outdoor area on the water. The outstanding feature of the home’s design is the atrium which flows from the front entry right through to the rear of the property.
Paul Cooper was again engaged in building an additional two bedrooms with en suites, both located upstairs and accessed via a glass-sided bridge across the atrium.
With so much light and framed vistas to the open plan living space, it was important that this area makes a strong visual statement. To create that wow factor Gail Hinkley used black and white furniture, artwork and accessories with clever detailing to accentuate the already impressive space. The connections between the rooms made colour and contrast a central theme carried throughout the home.
The bedroom furnishings and accessories, while maintaining the same general theme, are presented in softer and more restful tones.
Both Gail and the Stevens family are delighted with the results – a truly timeless and impressive coastal home.
