If you’ve been following the blog for a little while, you will know that I teamed up with Interiors Addict last year to fit out and style “Apartment 16” a beautiful two bedroom holiday apartment in iconic Palm Beach, an hour and a half from Sydney’s CBD. The apartment has enjoyed back to back bookings since it’s refurbishment and now I’ve been asked back to fit out a few others in the building.
Apartment 12A, along with another one or two apartments in the block will be undergoing a little facelift in the coming weeks, new paint, new flooring and possibly even re-working the doors to the balcony to make space for an outdoor lounge.
It’s important that the apartments share some common elements so there will be some pieces repeated in Apartment 12A where possible. It’s also vital that the pieces are durable, stain resistant and hardwearing. Serviced apartments need to work twice as hard as a residential home so we can’t have precious decorative pieces in the apartment as they’ll be ruined in no time. The client and I are also really cautious of appearing too “beachy” with the decor, a relaxed Hamptons feel is the look we are aiming for, something calming to come home to after a day at the beach.
Here’s a collage of pictures of how Apartment 12A looks at the moment. It’s going to take some loving to make it look just as fabulous as Apartment 16!
Ps. if you’d like a little holiday to Palm Beach, the Illuka Resort is available to rent for short-stays – an ideal weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of Sydney! For booking information click here.
