The Atlantic guest house in Byron Bay redefines all the stuffiness and predicability of holiday accomodation. With its ever-evolving aesthetic and timeless attention to detail, it most certainly lives up to its reputation as one of the Shires most beautiful lifestyle hotels.
In 2005 designer Kimberly Amos took a chance and bought a rundown backpackers hostel that had a stellar location right in the heart of Byron Bay. Amos, along with her husband Stephen Eakin, lovingly set about restoring and transforming the 4 original cottages and grounds into what is now The Atlantic, a gorgeously curated slice of heaven in our very own Byron paradise.
The Atlantic with its considered simplicity, collected treasures and travel ephemera is the perfect home to several styles of our encaustic Jatana tiles. Throughout the Atlantic, Jatana encaustic tiles have been used to create chic focal points full of timeless character and effortless charm.
The use of vintage Jatana tiles throughout the Atlantic guest house design is nothing short of inspiring and breathtakingly beautiful. From bold, modern influenced, tile wrapped kitchen islands to subtle and ever so on trend bathroom floor tiles, that with their tonally monochromatic colour scheme, exuded style in the chicest of ways.
So much of the Australian lifestyle, and without doubt the Byron lifestyle, is lived outdoors and this fusion between indoor and outdoor living is something that the design of the Atlantic embraces oh so well. Without doubt one of our favourite spaces in the Atlantic is the vintage Jatana tiled outdoor shower. We love seeing our tiles out in the elements, basking in the sunshine surrounded by lush greenery…our tiles are made for both indoor and outdoor use and are sure to look just as extraordinary in either
It is nothing but a pleasure to visit my tiles at the Atlantic every so often and to see them featured so magnificently never ceases to make me smile. This is exactly where my much-loved tiles belong, in places where memories are made and many an adventure had.
