Today is our 6th Birthday!!! What a whirlwind it has been. A delightful, challenging, creative, complex time to be sure – but without a shadow of a doubt, the immediate and exponential growth and success of Birdblack Design is just WONDERFUL!
Let’s stroll down Memory Lane as we showcase some of our favourite projects, our diverse passion for unique styles and celebrate all things from Coastal Hamptons to Modern Industrial to Traditional Glam! Birdblack Design has never been a cookie cutter design company and we are so pleased to deliver bespoke homes, perfect for our individual clients, day in and day out!
The fusion of Hamptons Glam and Aussie Coastal Living is evident here in the cabinetry finishes. A gorgeous highlight blue is seen on the Island as well as in the Home Bar display with custom perforated steel inlays in the overhead cabinets. A crisp white is seen on all the remaining cabinetry, complementing that blue beautifully.
The custom designed panelling and detailing on the walls translate a traditional element of Hamptons Glam. Birdblack Design specified oversized skirting boards complete with beautiful carvings designed into them. The herringbone-patterned oak timber flooring runs smoothly throughout the entire Ground Floor.
In Wollongong, where BD is located, we are blessed to have coastline all around – perfect for a Hampton’s style home. Having said that, a Hampton’s home is DIVINE amongst the countryside, with all that shrubbery and greenery abounding.
With a relatively new home, we had to be quite creative with how we managed the aesthetic of this home. Birdblack Design opted for innovative ‘weathering’ of this home, to make it look older and therefore more industrial than it actually is.
We installed three steel beams, painted in a rusted finish to give the effect that the beams were being ‘uncovered’, however the beams are a brand new element to the home. We achieved the aesthetic our clients desired without starting with an aging home. Creative and innovative design at its best!
The solid timber benchtop with vertical slat waterfall end is fitted with LED strip lighting around the benchtop. This feature lighting is spectacular at night, highlighting the pattern and the definition of the timber waterfall end, adding to the Industrial design of 'Ranchby Residence'.
Stunning brass and marble are evident throughout the Ground Floor, as are the glass, black and metallic finishes which trail throughout the home, including the feature lighting.
The Bar in the Dining Room is a notable feature. We desired the Dining Room to be dark and moody; giving it far more formal and luxurious aesthetic. Dark timber grounds this space. Utilising a mirror splashback opens the space, allowing light to bounce throughout. ‘Redgum Ridge’ opted for custom-made furniture to suit their monumental entertaining needs.
Stunning oak timber and gorgeous shimmery metallic tiles in all bathrooms create cohesion. Every bathroom also features striking pendant lighting as well as warm toned marble-look porcelain.
CONTEMPORARY COMMERCIAL HAVEN
Contemporary can be tricky – because contemporary in particular is ever-changing and evolving. In the 1990’s for example, Classic Contemporary would have been white all over. Birdblack Design passionately stays on top of (and often ahead of) the trends. Then we implement them into your homes and businesses!
By choosing clever materials and a soothing colour palette; home, hope and care is communicated to all patients.
Thank you to all our clients, suppliers, tradies, fans, followers and supporters! Birdblack Design truly would not be here without you all. We are so appreciative of you all!
Also: if you didn’t hear… the Australian Government is offering renovation / new build grants of $25K! It was a birthday gift to us (haha), but we are more than happy to share our birthday gift with new clients! Check it out – then call us.
