Living on the beautiful northern beaches of Sydney, we are lucky to have a relaxed and laid back lifestyle. This aesthetic can be translated into our homes, through our material choices, the shape and layout of the architecture and the connection between indoors and out. Keeping clean, modern lines and simplifying the palette can lift the style to be more sophisticated and upmarket whilst still staying true to the lifestyle we all love. These images showcase natural elements of timber juxtaposed against clean white or black elements. The balance between natural and man made, hard-scape and soft-scape, vertical and horizontal.
