23 Sep Inside Shelley Craft’s Byron Bay Home
Australian TV personality Shelley Craft has fashioned an oasis in the hills above Byron Bay that captures the spirit of the area while incorporating unique boutique design ideas. The home also boasts features that make the most of the natural elements of its Byron Bay location.
Living by the bay offers copious amounts of light, steady ocean breezes flowing through homes and the stunning views. Craft’s residence utilises all of these elements. To begin with, solid white is utilised on almost every interior wall. The white of the residence aids all the natural light that floods through the large glass window panels.
There are also various timber beams throughout the residence that accentuate the natural elements of the home. Rosewood beams and window framings also contrast the white interior.
Craft capitalises on the natural qualities of the home by choosing rustic décor that compliments those elements. A simple writing desk and cabinet with a finish that resembles petrified beach wood compliments the marble boxes and clocks with foggy metals.
The rest of the décor throughout the house makes the residence resemble a coastal boutique resort. Classic antique chairs with patterned upholstery and white sofas and tables mixed in with bright colours like blue and yellow round out the boutique feel of the residence. The indoor-outdoor space of the home is where that design scheme is the most prominent with trendy furniture pieces that incorporate a mix of white and blue patterns.
Blue also has a stronger presence in the bedroom. The rug, bed linens, throw pillows and vases employ different shades of blue patterns that contrast the ever-present white of the residence.
Shelley Craft’s Byron Bay home – The outdoors
Shelley Craft made a number of renovations to the property. One of the things the renovations concentrated on was utilising the beauty of the outdoors. In an interview with the Gold Coast Bulletin, Craft said, “Every change we made was to accentuate the home’s outdoor lifestyle.” It is fair to say they have done just that.
