What was your goal for the build?
Our goal for building Bask el sol was to create not just a house but a sanctuary we could retreat to, reset and revitalize ourselves surrounded by the tranquil landscape and calming energy our land holds.
How would you describe your style?
Bask el sol is a fusion of styles inspired by Queensland’s coastal aesthetic and our love of coastal Mediterranean farmhouse style. White render, arches, an abundance of natural light, an earthy colour palette, and textiles. You will find abundant natural light, sky-high ceilings and vast window openings to connect with the natural surroundings.
Talk us through the process you took in the planning stages of the build!
The planning stage was quite an easy process as we knew the style we wanted to embrace and features that would highlight the coastal Mediterranean farmhouse we wanted to build. We worked with Dall Designer Homes to put our dream to paper, and we have completely fallen in love with what we have achieved. The initial planning stages involved designing a home with a modern coastal vibe, large open plan living areas with sky-high pitched ceilings and an abundance of windows to let in natural light and airflow. We brought in the Mediterranean farmhouse warmth and feel via light oak flooring, bespoke Jatana tiles, reclaimed timber features and rendered bathroom walls. Arches were used as statement architectural features alongside brushed brass tapware, soft furnishings and decor inspired by nature’s colour palette (Jai Vasicek artworks, wall hangings from the Dharma door, jute rugs etc.).
