Hicks Residence

‘Hicks Residence’ began their renovations 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 2: Kitchen & Dining
The bold and dramatic tones and colours capture your attention immediately. Utilising a metal finish as a backdrop; the flecks within the metal, dance in the light. Undoubtedly the main feature, the Alpha Verdi green marble benchtops and splashbacks take the spotlight.

The skylight overhead allows natural light to stream in, drawing focus to an incredible mid-century design pendant light, sitting above the white concrete benchtop (perfect for food prep) and the American walnut timber dining table. The timber floors coincide with the timber highlights and leads into the new extended living space.

The black accents in the black sink, the handles and the Zetr power points are striking and perfectly offset all the brass.

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