This home started life as a two bedroom dwelling set in established grounds. An extensive renovation took place. A large part of the home was gutted and reconfigured to a better layout. With the addition of a new family room and garage the home is now a well thought out and well-loved home. The home was taken back to its bare bones to provide a totally blank canvas. As the home’s owners intend to live in the home for many years come it gave license to be creative and to stamp their personality throughout the house. Based on a theme of black, white and silver the home is classic in its colour palette but not in how the colours have been used in the furnishings, fittings and fixtures.

About the

Parkhurst Design is a unique interior design studio, specialising in residential and marine interior design. I approach each interior design project with individuality. Just as clients are different, no two projects are the same and this is reflected in the completed projects.

I work alongside respected builders, architects, naval architects and boat builders to achieve the very best results for my clients.
