A Colorful Australian Apartment by the Beach

Professional Project

Project by: Bronwyn Poole
Location: Bronte Beach Sydney Australia

From designer Bronwyn: I furnished this Bronte Beach Sydney apartment for a young professional couple, Amie and Andy. They came to me with a Palm Springs aesthetic in mind and asked me to create a relaxed vibrant home for them to enjoy. With their first child on the way they wanted it to be easily maintained and child friendly

The apartment had some unusual angles so I designed built-in joinery below the television to square off the space and allow an area rug to sit against it.

We installed mirrors along the back dining room wall to reflect the stunning beach view and filled the space with colorful textiles that bought the iconic Australian beach inside their home.

It was a delightful project to work on and very special to have clients who were so brave and willing to allow me to use such bright and bold patterns.


Thanks, Bronwyn Poole!
