‘Hicks Residence’ began two years ago, with a Bathroom and Laundry renovation. Two years later, Birdblack Design were once again engaged to complete the Kitchen and the Living Areas, as well as the Guest House towards the back of the home.

This gorgeous Spanish Mission style home has such character and charm, yet is not a style seen very often of the South Coast of Australia. The brief was for the interior was to create maximised functionality and provide a truly ornate and elegant aesthetic.

Phase 1: Laundry
The existing space was tired and in need of some love. We increased the outdated Laundry space in order to accommodate a new shower and toilet, making functionality for the family’s day to day use much more effective. To create cohesion between the wet zones; similar colours, textures and materials were used.

Both the Laundry and the Main Bathroom share porcelain floor tiles as well as the fabulous natural granite hexagonal tiles. The leather pulls bring mid-century luxury to the space as well as an element of warmth.

A word from the owners:
Sarah is a highly professional, talented designer who delivered a magical bathroom and laundry for us and we would highly recommend her to anyone who wants exceptional quality in both her technical and personal skills.
