What started out as a blank canvas has been transformed into a spectacular multipurpose space built to expand on the existing footprint of a family home. Designed by interior designer and founder of SOUL Home, Simone Mathews, The SHACK blends coastal and rustic influences with a hint of the Mediterranean to create a fresh and fun studio with a holiday feel.
Located in Cronulla Beach, NSW, the single storey studio sits on Simone’s property, behind her ‘maybe forever home’. Consisting of an airy and open living and dining space, with a kitchenette and bathroom, the aim for this project was to create a versatile area that could be used as an external rumpus room, a guest room or a potential office in the future. When designing the space, Simone kept the colours light and neutral, using fittings and décor to bring the space to life and accentuate the coastal, holiday vibe – her signature brief.
