Dreamy beach house offers relaxed living off Australian coast

Beach House-Karen Akers-01-1 Kindesign

This serene beach house was designed by interior designer Karen Akers, located on Avoca Beach, a coastal suburb of the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia. The interiors encompass a soft color palette, evoking the essence of its natural surroundings, with hues of sand and stone with washed out pastels and lovely variations of white. As you look around you will notice the spaces feature clean lines and bespoke cabinetry and furniture pieces. In the living room, the fireplace is the centerpoint of the room, comprised of brick that has has been whitewashed. Beadboard walls on either side of the fireplace are a typical design feature in beach homes. Wooden sofas with plush cushions and pillows offers comfortable and casual places to sit and relax, while a Moroccan pouff sits in the middle as an alternative to the typical coffee table. Expansive windows lets the sunshine in and captures the views out to the sandy beach and beyond to the lapping of the ocean waves.
