Located in the picturesque coastal town of Kiama, NSW, both home owners had owned several properties prior. They had now acquired their dream home; the place where they would come to slowly wind down amongst the laid-back nature of the surrounding neighbourhood, a place they could enjoy with their extended families.

The main bathroom was located in the middle of the house – without any access to natural ventilation. By extending the bathroom, we could include both a freestanding bath and double shower, much t our clients’ content. A fabulously large Velux skylight was installed to provide natural light and star-gazing by night. Additionally, the now open space allows a delightful breeze to flow through the bathroom.

It is now time to address the FABULOUS elephant in the room – the bathroom’s most striking feature. Like most people, you may be shocked to discover this jungle inspired tile is in fact a tile, and not at all wallpaper!  This tile set the theme for the colour green to be featured throughout the home. The floor in the bathroom grounds the space with a stunning chocolate parquetry pattern: a porcelain tile perfectly suited for wet areas.

A word from the owners:
After we had purchased an extremely tired older home with good bones I became overwhelmed with the renovation task ahead.That was when I contacted Sarah. She quickly responded, meeting with us to talk through our options. I have to say how impressed we were with Sarah’s ability to listen to our needs and interpret them in a way that we hadn’t thought about but loved. We had absolute confidence in Sarah – she is highly creative,organised and able to drive projects through to completion while keeping everyone working together well. Sarah never lost sight of the final product while ensuring the project progressed and the quality of the finished product was second to none. I highly recommend Sarah and Birdblack Design to anyone thinking of renovating or planning their next build.
