A desire to escape to the beach is embedded in every Australian’s DNA. For those lucky enough to have access to one, and those who just wish they lived by the coast year-round, there is a particular aesthetic which recreates the summery vibes of life by the sea. Think white window shutters, white linen sofas, sea-shell collections, pale beige and blue bed linen and naive wood designs. My favourite part of this look is the pale oak floorboards, just like the Precinct Oak Range in Loire, best finished with the Atrium Jute Rug in Polo Blue.
Recently, collecting art has become an everyday pursuit, with homes that are inspired by art galleries continuing to grow in trend. They feature bright white walls, flooded with natural light, and are adorned with a curated collection of designer furniture pieces and striking artworks. The most popular flooring preference - a look that pays homage to the iconic converted warehouse galleries of New York City - is Carpet Court’s premium timber range, Terra Firma, made entirely from Australian-grown plantation Eucalypt and manufactured using only the highest quality hardwood timber. Coming in a matte or satin finish, it’s perfect for recreating gallery vibes at home.
