Gilmore Residence

Partnering with Innovation Building and Design, Birdblack Design created a wonderful new home for our home owners. The original property was a small family home with a detached granny flat. Birdblack Design knocked down multiple walls throughout, redefining the spaces and joining the family home to the granny flat and creating a brand new home.

Birdblack Design implemented the Turnkey Strategy with this project – the crème de la crème of design packages. This means that after both the design and selection phases, our clients did not see any of the construction phases. They left their home one way, and the next time they saw it, absolutely everything was brand new according to their selections! Birdblack Design fashioned a bow on the front door, and with champagne in tow, we welcomed our clients to their “brand new” home. Watching their expressions as we revealed each new aspect was so fantastic and they were completely blown away, witnessing the entire transformation for the very first time!

PARENTS’ QUARTERS: The New Extension
Previously this property had two houses: the original home and a detached granny flat. Birdblack Design knocked down one wall from each of the houses to create a gangway, thereby creating a thoroughfare and one lovely and large home. This Parents’ Retreat is a double storey with a Powder Room, Lounge Room and Home Bar downstairs. The Master Suite encases the entire upper floor.

The Home Bar sits beautifully under the staircase with gorgeous brushed gold tapware adding subtle bling to a dark and moody Home Bar space. A shimmery silver splashback makes the perfect backdrop to the dark oak cabinetry. Finally, we incorporated an under-mount black basin bowl to complete this stylish Home Bar, where Mum and Dad can enjoy a lovely night cap before retiring upstairs.

Heading upstairs, we enter the Master Suite – a haven complete with Walk-In Robes, glamorous Ensuite and Master Bedroom.

The Ensuite is our absolute favourite room of the home with wonderfully bodacious teal green tiles with gold patterned overlay. With a different pattern per tile, the effect is brilliant. These tiles cover three of the walls, with the patterned feature wall surrounding the basin, mirror and continuing through the shower recess wall. It is has some amazing WOW factor; paired with soft, muted, neutral colours that tie in with the rest of the home. Large white subways tiles cover the fourth wall, relating to the Main Bathroom near the Kitchen. The Ensuite houses the toilet, a custom-made vanity of walnut timber and a divine Omvivo oversized white basin. The large walk-in shower incorporates a rainwater shower head, a rail-shower head and lovely, large shower seat. Matte black tapware and accessories ground the space.

Skylights overhead allow natural light to flood in through the Master Suite. Opposite the Ensuite are customised His and Hers Robes in a beautiful walnut timber. Into the Master Bedroom, the walnut timber robes continue through for the more day-to-day items.
