I’ve had quite a break over Christmas and New Year but back now and kicking the year off with a project from one of my favourite designers… Mixing pattern, textures and materials are the key to Studio McGee’s designs, for example juxtaposing a leather sofa next to a linen sofa. A dark almost black buttoned […]
Another fabulous project from Studio Mcgee, contemporary meets traditional… What’s not to love about this space, a mix of contemporary pieces and traditional give it a modern look with a heritage nod. Textures are big with Studio McGee and if you look closely at the coffee table in image 5 you will see it has […]
Crib Creative If we want to make a personal good impression we will want to dress our best, this can also be said of the first impression one receives as they step inside our home… When someone visits our home for the first time, it gives them an impression of the person we are, it […]
Described as “Cape Cod meets West Indies”, another fabulous project by one of my favourite design companies. The exterior architecture of this new build leans towards Hamptons, however Black Band Design have also injected a tropical feel inspired by quote, the “vibrant waters of the Caribbean”. When planning a new build by oneself with no interior designer […]
1. Image via Mercer Interior The word, ‘boho’ may conjure up a riotous mix of colours and patterns, muddle these together in a messy but creative way and throw in some greenery and you may have the boho of the past. However, today boho can be far more chic, in fact…..’boho chic’. ‘Boho’ stems from the word […]
“Casual and sophisticated, modern and timeless, serene but colourful” is how the designer describes this relaxed, South Carolina home. The designers, Guest House Studio, have used varying shades of blue for this project, with paint, soft furnishing and artwork. Blue is ‘cool’ on the colour charts but can evoke a moody or calming affect when you […]

A Coastal Touch by Molly Frey Design
I love the rustic touches Molly Frey has incorporated into this newly constructed beach house. Traditional style architecture gives this home a timeless feel, and Molly’s interior design is a welcoming addition.
I believe that the entrance to a home should make a statement, an introduction to who you are and what your home is about. It should be welcoming and interesting like the entrance above. Molly of Molly Frey Design has made a statement with a bold timber console and added some elegance with the circular mirror. Other items add further interest. The rustic basket gives a relaxed look, baskets can be a great way of hiding shoes, I actually use one under the small hall table in my entrance way but getting people to use it is another story. If you have limited space then a narrow console such as this is a great option.
Unfortunately there are no images of the bedroom, however I am sure you will enjoy the kitchen and living spaces and a peep of a bathroom.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this lovely home, I especially love the hall console and when I finally move into my beach house (down the track), I would like something similar. Of course you don’t have to live near the beach to incorporate this style into your home. If you would like to see more of Molly Frey Design, please visit their website (link at the top of the page).
