Light and Dark: Interiors to LOVE.

Hello friends! It’s been a little while since we put out a blog, but we decided to jump back in and tell the world about the work that’s been happening in our Interior Design Studio. As Interior Designers, we have been busily designing beautiful homes and apartments and we wanted to share our latest works. Birdblack Design is an Interior Design Studio who loves to design in many different styles – and best of all is to create unique and bespoke fusions. Interior Design should not be a cookie-cutter mold where one size fits all. Let’s have a look at what styles we have been designing lately.

Our clients are two brothers and their families who are sharing a holiday home in the Southern Highlands. The brothers desired a Modern Hunting Lodge – a very masculine space to enjoy. The design brief was for clean lines and hunting lodge touches. The Dining Room seats 14 people – wonderfully accommodating both families at mealtimes. Details are super important for Interior Designers. Our Design Studio strives to pay attention to all the needs of our clients and apply them to the design. In terms of aesthetics, the charcoal polished concrete makes the perfect base, the joinery and the walls are clad with porcelain panels, whilst the stag pendant lighting provides the WOW factor.

From dark to light, let us welcome you to Woodland Residence in Western Australia. Our Interior Design Studio can design interstate and even overseas; our Interior Designers are comfortable designing from a distance. The overall style of this home is Modern Hamptons Luxury, and are clients are business owners with school-aged children. The design brief was to have a luxury home that was able to entertain their many guests.

This home was redesigned as the Ground Floor was void of sunlight. We opened up the home by creating a central courtyard and designed in the bedrooms and bathrooms to have more natural light. Above is the Primary Ensuite – such a gorgeous and luxe space. Our Interior Designers really thought out of the box with this home’s design! The beautiful wallpaper adding texture to the space, the stately bath plinth ensuring you feel like royalty as you ascend to the bath. Marble and natural stone cover the floor and walls, including the vanity benchtop. This room is luxurious in all its beauty.

Whilst the Primary Ensuite is creamy and delicious, the Formal Powder Room on the Ground Floor in our Woodland Residence offers something a little different. Even within the same home, our Interior Designers choose to inspire through their selections. Our Design Studio enjoy designing in the light and bright. Just as much, we enjoy designing in dark and moody interiors also. The burgundy in this room absolutely POPS and screams glam luxe. The detailing on the walls is very Hamptons, whilst the floor and benchtop captivate.

Now we have seen dark and moody, and we have seen Glam Hamptons, now we turn our eyes to somethings a little more Contemporary Coastal. This home has pops of colour through the green joinery wall and furniture, that reflects and represents the young family well: a working, professional couple with three teenage children.  The design brief was to create a family home that could be adaptable and flexible for their needs. The design stems from the family’s bustling lifestyle and their desire to have a space that they can use on a multitude of different things such as entertaining and parties on their moody rooftop style balcony, board game nights and family time in their plush, warm living room, and even to quiet time and study/work zones with functional spaces.

Functional design was also a big aspect, as we were designing a home for a family of 5, storage and functionality were paramount: a key component for our Interior Designers to consider.

Furniture was also a massive part of the brief, the clients had wanted a home that felt homely, and not an apartment that felt like an Airbnb. Plush cushions, sofas and warm tones were sporadically laid throughout the home to reflect this, which complimented well against the hard timber floors and timber accents of the home. This home incorporated both Interior Design and Interior Decorating as part of the brief.

One of the pain points was the working with the existing blueprint of the apartment. As apartments cannot be rearranged due to existing plumbing points/walls, being able to create operable and functional spaces was the biggest challenge. The small existing laundry room plan needed to be reconfigured to fit as much storage as possible. The kitchen design needed to be carefully thought out to reflect how our clients live and entertain.
