BRIEF

After extensive internal flooding during the pandemic, the clients engaged Maine House Interiors to complete a full interior renovation on their much-loved coastal retreat.

DESIGN

“We chose a classic, American-style marine palette of red, white and blue to reflect the coastal surrounds without playing into coastal design cliches,” says Amy Spargo, Design Director.

“Experiencing a flood is a very emotional journey so we focused on the positive opportunities and incorporating the clients’ favourite things, from the colour red to a wow-factor chandelier on the staircase.

“The owners are passionate about supporting Australian design, so we specified furniture and fabrics from Australian furniture designers and fabric houses.”

A NOTE FROM THE CLIENT

""A renovation is always challenging, but from my first meeting with Amy, I knew that I had found a designer who shared my vision for the complete renovation of our beach house.

Amy has created a space for us that is not only beautiful, but comfortable and inviting for family and friends. Amy seemed to completely understand what I wanted and then went on to deliver above my expectations. We could not be more delighted with the final result."
