There can be no better way to create an individual ambience for your home than bringing on board a designer with the vision to not only create a character interior but also design original pieces that celebrate and complete the design look.

'Take me to a tropical island resort!' – that was the required aesthetic for this home, oozing island influence and set beside its own natural lagoon, surrounded by lush tropical plantings, says designer Kira Gray, who created the evocative interior design, along with key pieces, that runs through the home and the master suite.

Besides designing the one-off entertainer's kitchen at the heart of the exotic home, Kira Gray's interior design and custom joinery pieces give the wider interior the tropical feel that the owners wanted – including the welcoming master bedroom, master ensuite and a natural vibe powder room.

As part of this, Kira Gray designed a feature stained-oak headboard in the master bedroom that doubles as a generous his-and-hers walk-through dressing room on the bathroom side.

The wardrobe/bedhead also provides an easy separation between bedroom and ensuite and gained valuable usable space, a fact reflected by it winning Master Bedroom Suite  – Spatial Innovation at the 2019 NKBA awards.

“Pale, sandy wall tones feature throughout the interior, along with casual rattan or wood furniture, to further the home’s island resort aesthetic.

“The custom wood bathroom vanity and powder room table with their slatted towel racks are part of this. All wood elements connect with the solid wood floors that run throughout the airy home.”
