Taylor Residence

Located in the picturesque coastal town of Kiama, NSW, this home would in fact become our clients’ dream home: a representation of their personalities and a place they could enjoy with their extended families.

Our clients LOVE bright colours and retro furniture. Given the 70’s coastal brick home, Birdblack Design was charged with tying all these styles together. We wanted to keep a very classic look about the home, accenting it with existing furniture and some additional bold statement pieces, creating cohesion throughout the newly renovated rooms.

Green is a feature colour throughout the new home, the Kitchen features a fabulous jungle inspired tile on the back of the island bench and cook-top splashback.

New grey ironbark timber floors were installed upstairs and we opted for a shaker profile to the kitchen joinery in a gorgeous satin white finish. The benchtops are Smartstone Amara which provides a beautifully soft marble look. The old kitchen was situated in the middle of the house, away from any external walls. Birdblack Design made creative use of an old sunroom, extending the kitchen into this space. Once new windows and doors were installed, natural light now abounds in this brilliant space.

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.
