Designing & Inspiration

Resort Style Homes 

Holiday at home with the grandeur and glamour of resort style homes. Influenced by the oversized floorplans of tropical resorts, resort style home designs offer the height of luxury; every day. As a result of lockdown living, many homeowners have chosen to embrace key features of holiday hideaways in their homes. Today, resort style homes are a leading home design trend, providing a reimagined take on open living plans, modern designs and outdoor areas.  

This home style is a unique combination of contemporary home design as well as the classic features of coastal or tropical styles. By taking the best of both, the resort style home is the epitome of luxury, reimaging sleek and refined details through the relaxed coastal lens.  

What are resort style homes?

Resort style homes take inspiration from classic tropical resorts. Discover plenty of generously sized windows, an effortlessly connected indoor-outdoor space and an overall emphasis on the natural world. It’s a combination of modernist design features with a coastal edge, incorporating the outdoors at every point possible.   

This home design relies on cold materials like polished concrete, muted natural materials and minimalist design styles, which lends itself to Australia’s warmer climates.
