Ocean Edge Apartment

Ocean Edge Apartment

Situated right on the ocean’s edge, this couple wanted to create a comfortable retreat with a relaxed but luxe feel. The newly built apartment had an inherited scheme from the developer.  Our clients engaged Kirsten Ford Design to create a look and feel for their holiday home which was more personal, incorporating much loved pieces of art while ensuring focus still remained on the incredible view beyond.

Living Room Layers

We wanted to show you a little peek behind the scenes of how we created this ocean edge living room. Like every project, this space was created in layers. Layering adds warmth and interest to a space - and is a key way of stamping personality on a room, ensuring it tells the story of you.

Timeless Elegance

Timeless Elegance

This family undertook a significant rebuild to transform a tired 1920's bungalow into a stylish, forever family home.  They dreamt of an effortlessly elegant home, one that would stand the test of time and be highly liveable and welcoming for their children, their many friends and the extended family who often stay. 

Grand old lady

Grand old lady

This client took on a labour of love when she purchased this grand old lady. The 1890's villa had weathered over time, and while some period features were still beautifully preserved, a major renovation was definitely in order.  The home is now the perfect blend of heritage details and modern, fresh finishes.

Autumn decor is all about touchy-feely textures and cocooning colours.  The new season releases are full of rich tones and textures to get our homes ready for cooler weather when we spend more time snuggling up indoors.  Here’s my guide to getting your home autumn cosy. 

Modern Classic

Modern Classic

This super busy family of five (and all the teenager's friends!) needed a major kitchen update.  The brief: functional but still fabulous. The client was keen to experiment with colour, but still wanted a chic, classic finish.  The result is the prefect blend of classic and contemporary - streamlined, chic and completely unique.
