Lana, Bonnie and Erin, the dynamic trio that make up Three Birds Renovations, are creating a Hamptons home with a twist.
Hot off the heels of their House 10 project (catch the recap here), Three Birds Renovations are back with a new project. Their client, Amy, Reyhan, and their three children, have given the Birds complete creative control to transform their suburban Sydney house into their forever home.
This week saw the team tackle the kitchen, dining and lounge areas of the home. The existing kitchen was barely functional for a family of five, with hardly enough space for three people to stand. The jutting-out benchtop interrupted the flow into the similarly cramped dining nook.
Watch the full episode here:
Lana and Erin were excited to see how Bonnie handled bringing her own sense of personal style to the kitchen and living space, while keeping the family’s needs in mind. The “Colour Me Hamptons” style of the home had to come through in every part of the house.
"[there's] colour and pattern you might not otherwise expect in a formal Hamptons"
Even professionals encounter setbacks in the renovation process. The family wanted the home to feel really open plan, so Bonnie’s first instinct was to knock out all the walls. Unfortunately, one of the kitchen walls was structural. Bonnie compromised by replacing the top half of the wall with a window that opens up the space.
The result is a stunning combined kitchen, living and dining space that’s filled with light. The team have nailed the Hamptons look with the traditional v-groove panelling of the cabinet and lighting fixtures, but the kitchen island detailing in powder blue adds a quirk to the space.
The kitchen centrepiece is the Kado Classic Sink Mixer Tap, whose striking silhouette is the hero of the island bench. It complements the chrome of the light fixtures and pairs perfectly with the white stone. The butler style Shaws Lancaster Ceramic Sink preserves the bench's clean lines and is an ideal contrast to the powder blue island. Both pieces deliver that traditional edge which is essential to the Hamptons style.
