Residential Styling & Design Project

Bangalow Ave – Creating a ‘forever home’ for a client is what Bone Made find the most rewarding – when a client desires their home to be tailor suited to their lifestyle and be full of heart and soul. What makes an interiors project so successful is building up a strong relationship with their client from the initial design consultation, where they get down to the nitty gritty by understanding the clients core values, their requirements and what interior styles inspire them however they can’t seem to execute the aesthetic themselves. The 'Bangalow Ave' project was a mix of both styling and design, as the duo designed streamline joinery solutions for the casual living, kitchen and home office.

The existing bones of the residence were a dream to work with for Bone Made. Enhanced space, an open plan layout, lots of natural light, and a beautiful finishes and colour palette. Located on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the client wished for a ‘Sophisticated Coastal Scheme’, however weren’t after anything overly beachy.  

Collaborating with James from JMP (James Middleton Projects), Bone Made designed contemporary joinery solutions for the casual living space - creating a floor to ceiling built in entertainment unit with 'oak veneer look' open shelving for styling and accessorising, whilst concealing all electronics. They created a seating nook across from the kitchen which transformed a thoroughfare into a functional and aesthetically pleasing space, as well as designing a home office unit within their guest bedroom, consisting of an 'oak veneer look' desk, an acoustic pinboard and ample storage above the bench.

Upon completion of the project, the client stated "....We are really happy with the outcome of our place, working with you both was seamless and your communication was excellent!.."

Earthy Interiors

Sydney Interior designer

We love earthy interior schemes for the home. Textural wall finishes, raw and natural materials such as timber and stone, warmer colour palettes (think soft, neutral or Autumn hues for that pop of colour) organic shapes with laid back, minimalist styling and spaces drenched in natural light. We have compiled a few of our favourite ‘earthy’ looks, along with a couple of tips on how to bring a little more earthiness into your home in cost effective ways.

Textured Walls

Textured walls | Our tip on achieving a cost effective textured wall look is the ‘Murowash + sand’ finish by Murobond. A blend of finely grained mineral flat paint and sand mixed together to create a subtle textured finish, similar to render. Check out the beautiful Murowash + sand finish in the new Mr and Mrs White’s new showroom in Manly.

Earthy spaces we love

An earthy scheme creates a feeling of zen, cosiness and comfort. To create an earthier scheme throughout your home, select a mixture of textures (think woven rugs, recycled timber and stone), select a lighter colour palette, use low lying furniture, lots of greenery and keeping styling and decorative accents to a minimum to eliminate clutter.

Case Study | Wyndora Avenue

WYNDORA AVENUE - Bathroom, Bedroom & Study Renovation 

When the Bone Made duo initially met with their Wyndora Avenue clients, the brief was simple - for the design to be timeless, the space to be maximised and the style to reflect a luxurious coastal scheme with tribal elements.  

Beginning with the bathroom - originally a dated and pokey space, rather than a cosmetic upgrade Bone Made advised a full Renovation was required to meet their client’s brief.
By demolishing the entire bathroom back to its original structure, it allowed them to maximise the space to its full potential, increase natural lighting and create functional and practical storage solutions. To ensure longevity within the finishes selection, Bone Made specified a simple white and grey colour palette integrating timber tones to create warmth, ensuring the space didn’t feel cold, uninviting or sterile. Placing emphasis on the height of the raked ceiling, they added a custom, oversized 1200mm diameter mirror to add wow factor, reflect more light and allow the space to appear larger. Pendant lighting, floating shelves, greenery and some cute tribal accessories pulled the scheme together. 

Bone Made enhanced the bedroom space by re painting, re carpeting and re styling. Natural white by Dulux was selected as the paint finish, Caverlier Bremworth’s Lisburn carpet in ‘Damask’ for carpet, oversized bamboo pendants for lighting and a selection of greenery and monochrome scatter cushions were added for the final touches.

The study nook was a space which needed simplifying and scaling back. Removing the original, bulky office desk and chair, Bone Made designed and had custom built by a local joiner a simple American oak desk, paired with floating shelves for storage and to display decorative accents.
