Sunday Loves Spaces: Las Palmas Byron
Resting on a hilltop in the hinterland of Byron Bay is Las Palmas Byron Bay. The design (by DUO Architects in collaboration with Davis Architects) was inspired by Mid Century Modernist architecture and the Palm Springs aesthetic.
The home is divided into two long, low-set wings, one for sleeping and the other for entertaining. The living and dining areas open out to the expansive deck and pool area, positioned to bask in the glow of the amazing sunsets here.
The interior design and furniture choices are a mix of woven rattan pieces, vintage finds and a few chubby and chunky New Post-Modern pieces (primarily from Australian designer Sarah Ellison). The floors are all in a burnished concrete, but an array of gorgeous handmade rugs and runners soften the look.
Offsetting the fresh white walls is plenty of texture and warmth from stone-clad walls, honey-toned timber and brushed brass fittings.
The stone-clad wall is a classic of Mid Century architecture.
White finger tiles in the bathroom give a simple but textural look that doesn't compete with that gorgeous view.
The laundry deserves just as much design-love as any other room.
