Sydney’s Northern Beaches favourite Interior Designers
Advantage has a team of interior designers and decorators who have furnished and styled a range of homes across Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
From Palm Beach, Avalon and Newport down the coast to Freshwater and Manly, the area is home to some of Australia’s most pristine surf beaches and rolling coastlines lined with dream homes and luxury weekenders.
Suburbs like Mona Vale, Terrey Hills, Clareville and Bilgola Plateau have leafy outlooks while waterfront properties with their own boat pier can be found in suburbs from Clontarf and The Spit all the way down to Mosman in the lower north shore.
The Northern Beaches includes a wide range of home styles from your classic Aussie beach cottage to brand new start-of-the-art architecturally designed homes. Similarly, furnishing styles range from the more relaxed and rustic to the popular Hamptons style to luxury high-end.
In keeping with the different suburbs and their unique building and architectural styles, we specialise in a range of interior looks. Whether you’re after a coastal or more contemporary look our interior designers and decorators will work with you to bring your unique vision to life.
Hamptons home in Balgowlah
It was our pleasure to work with the clients of this lovely two-storey home in Balgowlah. The architecture of the home has a sense of grandeur with high ceilings and decorative features and a sweeping staircase. In keeping with a Hamptons-inspired look, both formal and more casual areas were created.
A timeless black and white scheme was chosen for the new furniture in the dining room to contrast with the client’s existing dining table which was stripped back to its raw timber top with a simple matt varnish. A feature pendant and large iron framed mirror are standout pieces in this room.
In contrast with the formality of the dining room, the nearby living room was kept more casual with layers of fabrics in soft neutral colours, a luxurious rug, striking artwork and timber and black accents in the furniture.
The master bedroom was completely transformed to create a luxurious yet comfortable space with a focus on white painted Hamptons-inspired timber furniture along with black detailing on picture frames, the leaner mirror and bed end stools. A palette of white, light blue, navy and dusty pink were chosen for fabrics including the custom-made bedhead in luxurious sky blue velvet.
Beachside Boho in Manly
The location said it all with this project, boasting a rolling surf beach nearby and a family who love the sea. Our interior design brief was to transform this light-filled Manly residence with beautiful premium finishes into a chic home with a focus on white and neutral colours and natural wood finishes. The result is a practical but warm space for a family with teenagers.
Starting with a neutral base, we added carefully chosen accessories including coastally inspired artworks, natural materials and soft colours to create a relaxed beachside look.
The rug in the main living room is natural woven sisal which we layered with a cowhide to add extra texture, depth and interest. The cowhide is the statement piece of this room which adds a bohemian feel to the coastal look.
Calming coastal-inspired colours were added through the soft furnishings, the table lamps and the artworks which feature a serene image of a boardwalk and boating inspired images in the dining room.
