When a big riverfront block came up for sale, it ticked all the right boxes. It was on the water, there was a football field across the road and it was a short bike ride to the boys’ school.

It was on the water, there was a football field across the road and it was a short bike ride to the boys’ school. Rather than renovate the existing house, the decision to knock down and rebuild also fulfilled Bec’s desire to design a dream home from scratch. An epic three-year project ensued, with the design alone taking 12 months to perfect; a timeless, coastal-meets-farmhouse look, underpinned by clever planning considering the family’s needs now and in the future.

“The whole colour palette was selected around my desire to have an organic brass feature tap that would patina over time,” says Bec of the kitchen. Once the Astra Walker ‘Icon’ pull-out sink mixer in Eco Brass was picked, everything else fell into place, from the Quantum Quartz ‘Naturale Concrete’ benchtops, to the Farmers Doors American Oak cabinetry in Dulux Vivid White installed by Smart Joinery, freestanding Smeg cooker, trio of ‘SpongeUp’ pendants by Klaylife and the ‘Kusina’ elm barstools from Uniqwa. “To me, the brass, oak cabinetry and timber stools create a lovely, warm welcoming feel – a space where my Mum, the boys’ Nonna, can come over and cook treats with her grandsons,” reveals Bec.
