Dream House with Aqua Accents | Part 1
Beach House Charm
A Gold Coast family built their dream home, combining classic Cape Cod style
with stunning architectural elements just made for relaxed living.
I have featured this house before but it's absolutely one of my favourite homes so when I discovered some more photos I just had to share them with you. Not only do I adore the architecture and the coastal colour palette but I also love the attention to detail and the beautiful styling.
A Queensland couple, engaged architect Bayden Goddard of BGD Architects to design them a new home that embraced both their family needs and their lifestyle. The owner, Kate, is a talented interior designer with her own business, Cove Interiors. Kate injected a relaxed coastal-inspired style into the interior that would highlight the home’s impressive indoor / outdoor design. Kate was inspired by designers like India Hicks, she wanted a bit of a colonial, Caribbean feel – almost like Cape Cod meets Noosa.
Airy and open, the home was designed to complement its leafy Southport address. The architect interpreted the Cape Cod meets Noosa direction as a mix of Australian beach style with Hamptons architectural influences. The aim was to not mimic a style but to find a blend of styles to create something new and fresh with it's own personality. The result is a home with a modern, open plan footprint, quality finishes and pared back details. Some of the standout features are the soaring ceilings, the views from the living spaces out over the pool and pool pavilion beyond and the lounge room fireplace for chilly nights. Two impressive twisted driftwood chandeliers from Hermon & Hermon dominate the open plan area. A stripped back colour palette of powder blues and sea greens mixed with the rustic touches of timber and stone make this a first class Aussie beach house.
