A word from Deb

The Final Reveal – Deb’s “Beach Hutt” Renovation



It’s such a simple word but it evokes a strong emotional response.

Safety, security, comfort, love. What we come home to, who we come home to is a big part of finding our Balance.

Deb embarked on her big beach house renovation project to rebuild her dream home last year and it’s not surprising that she had very clear ideas about what she wanted. That vision has seen her through a hectic nine months and below you can watch a guided tour of the final product…

The Master Bedroom and Ensuite

Deb’s designed her master bedroom to be a relaxing retreat – with the tranquillity of the leafy courtyard outside the window, and of course the stunning view of the ocean. It’s the only room in the house to have carpet so it has a soft, cosy feel. Deb has opened up the back wall of what was actually the original bedroom, with a floor to ceiling glass panel to let in natural light.
