Auldana Interior Design Render

Auldana

This project covers extensive DIY renovations to our 1985 build home, carried out between June 2020 and May 2021. We dropped walls, created doors and redesigned all interior spaces with custom joinery / fixtures. The look we were going for is 'light and open' but not overly modern. The 'hero' was the unique quartzite benchtop - which made our focus colours navy and grey (balanced with very light oak timber) ... a theme then introduced into all areas.

This is a quick vid of how it turned out:

Floor Plan 353.08㎡

Being a renovation we were constrained on the actual floor plan. Though we did open up the kitchen / dining / lounge area by taking down a couple of internal walls. We also made room for a combined butler's pantry / craft room by taking down a couple of internal walls.

Master Bedroom

Auldana Interior Design Render
The master bedroom was the only area where we kept the floating timber floors (for the 'warmer' look). Bed was moved (against all feng shui advice) and the foot of the bed now points towards the door (maybe we will introduce a blanket box to improve that).
Auldana Interior Design Render
Moving the bed gave us opportunity to introduce wall to wall built in robes (fantastic choice in hindsight) with two 'secret' (ie flush) doors: one to the walk-in-robe and one to the ensuite.
Auldana Interior Design Render
In what was the original walk-in-robe, all we did was to add a floor to ceiling mirror on far wall (quite inexpensive really) and better lighting, to get a real sense of space (which works well).
This walkthrough best presents the master bed room and ensuite areas.

Shed

Auldana Interior Design Render
We needed a temporary kitchen & laundry during our (long) renovations, so we 'recycled' our old cabinets and some flooring - and refreshed the look with inexpensive Ikea benchtops & splashbacks to get us this room.
Auldana Interior Design Render
This room now has a 'cottage' / 'European' feel of an all-in-one kitchen and laundry. Very happy with it.

Ensuite

Auldana Interior Design Render
We kept the bathroom modern and light. We had no use for the bath, but plenty of use for the new his-and-hers showers (very handy when getting ready to go out). The niches and feature column use a very colourful tile that reminds us of our short visit to Portugal!

Corridor

Auldana Interior Design Render
Not much to say in this small walkway.... we refreshed the joinery, and added a very nice light oak barn door to the powder room to add some colour and pzazz.

Entry

Auldana Interior Design Render
We refreshed the entry with clear cut lines in the niche and white / timber stairs. The hero in this room is the new sphere chandelier.

Laundry

The laundry just needed a facelift and relocation of appliances

Butler's Pantry / Craft

Auldana Interior Design Render
This is the new Butler's Pantry-come-Craft room. It opens up to the gym/office area. Idea here was to maximise storage and be able to have multiple working stations (sink, island and long wall desk).

A combination of mirror and tiled splashbacks combine to give the room a feeling of more space.

Powder Room

Auldana Interior Design Render
We dropped a wall here to make a bigger area, where we could combine toilet, vanity and a new shower cubicle. We tried to keep to the theme of other rooms, and loved using the white tiles to gain a sense of space (in what is otherwise a tiny room).

Kitchen / Lounge / Dining

Auldana Interior Design Render
This is the main living area - with walls dropped to make it open and let light in. Walls were a white colour for the light and to make area feel bigger.

An Escea gas log fireplace is the hero in the living area. This was coupled with thick hearth and mantle floating shelf to finish off the area. All furniture was chosen so as not to be too high (we wanted to keep the view to the outdoor pool area).
Auldana Interior Design Render
In the kitchen, the unique quartzite bench on the island is the hero (and what set the theme - of blues / greys and light oak). Mirror splashbacks were used quite effectively to make the space feel larger.
Auldana Interior Design Render
The wet bar is a big winner too - nice and wide / deep, with mirror splashback for sense of depth (and makes it look like there are many more bottles on the shelves) with the thick oak floating shelves to complement the rest of the room
Auldana Interior Design Render
The lighting fixtures (tiny cabinet LED spotlights and LED strips with diffusers) were designed to make the best of the space and the mirror splashbacks. The idea was to lay them out so they form lighting 'race tracks' into the mirror, giving the sense of a very deep, open bar area.
This walkthrough best showcases the living area and the butler's gulley / craft room areas.
