The 1940's beachside home of fashion blogger Carmen Hamilton was given a makeover and emerged a fresh, lively space perfect for the fashionista and her partner. The brief for the project given to Decus Interiors was to open the home up to more natural light and add a sense of mordernity throughout. What the interior team has produced has definitely hit that brief, giving the owners a fresh and feminine space. A variety of materials and textures clearly show Hamilton's flair for design goes further than fashion.

The original floor boards were sanded and stained, the kitchen was transformed through the addition of a glorious Carrara marble bench top and the floating Tango 3 brass pendant by Paul Matter is the cherry on top. The furniture was sourced from abroad and locally to create a perfectly curated but relaxed coastal vibe. The bedroom follows suit with soft crumpled bed linen nestled against the perfect bedside light, the Henry Wilson Surface Sconce and artwork from Caroline Walls' series, Maybe She. Tones of muted blush, light timbers, marble and the occasional black accessory accents add to the art deco appeal of the apartment and make it a truly cosy, stylish place to come home to.
