‘Sea Spray Residence’ is located in the Northern suburbs of the Illawarra with picturesque ocean views. ‘Sea Spray Residence’ is a refreshing fusion of Hamptons Glam and Australian Coastal Living. Birdblack Design was engaged for a Full Home Design Package.
The heart of the home where the family will spend the majority of their time together, Birdblack Design boasts that this layout is one of their best creative designs as it gives maximum functionality from all of the different rooms adjoining this space.
With dual access to the Kitchen from both the entertaining side (the Lounge/Dining Room) and from the Garage/Mudroom zone via the Walk-In Pantry. If you enter via the back of house, the Kitchen workspace is completely tucked out of sight. The Walk-in Pantry itself has been split into two zones. One zone is the Butler's Pantry with a sink and pantry storage; the second zone houses the integrated fridge and freezer and smaller appliances like your toaster and kettle. Having your smaller appliance within your Walk-In Pantry allows daily use without being on display in your Kitchen.
Speaking of the Kitchen, let’s head straight into this showstopper!
The Kitchen centres on a large Island Bench – the perfect spot for the kids to sit and chat while mum and dad make the evening meal. The tulip glass pendant lights above the Island add a very simple elegance to the space. 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. Paired with a smoky glass splashback, this look is divine. A crisp white is seen on all the remaining cabinetry, complementing that blue beautifully.
Carrara marble is featured as a splashback behind the freestanding cooker. The Hamptons design lends itself to symmetry, so Birdblack Design incorporated framed glass display cabinets on either side of the cooker.
Additionally, this Kitchen links with the Outdoor Alfresco Dining area and Outdoor Kitchen complete with built-in BBQ and additional sink. The benchtop extends out through a bi-fold window, allowing you to pass through food and drinks when entertaining. Alternatively, you can be sitting at the Home Bar while conversing with someone in the Kitchen, and considering the wonder that is ‘Sea Spray Residence’.
