A terrace house positioned just 2 blocks away from the Melbourne bayside waters of St Kilda West was given the kiss of life and granted room to breathe after interior designers, Taimi Sanders and Elissa King of Sanders & King, took on the task of bringing the grand old dame into the modern day era. Armed with a brief to reconfigure the back living area and kitchen as well as opening up what was once a dark poky formal dining room, Sanders & King effectively created more space, better spatial flow and extra light to flood the newly designed interior.
With the original plans having almost doubled in size, budget constraints were a consideration in the overall design, so Sanders & King set about choosing materials to ‘get the look’ without the price tag to match. A mixture of Laminate cupboards, stone bench tops and 2 PAC paint was specified to extend the dollar while maintaining the design aesthetic.
Oversized wall openings were created to allow for a a better flow between rooms, with space arguably one of the most important objectives for the owners and their three pre-teen daughters who live here.
