Stage one of this exciting journey in the Tambourine Mountains is now complete, with stage two on the way. 

We created a gorgeous belltower, which is a culmination of ideas from our clients and ourselves. the belltower features reclaimed windows from government buildings, an original 1920s front door, a reclaimed steel shield on the front from France. mixture of Paul Bangay stone feel meets French mediaeval. Inside there is a locally handmade staircase, and specially made bell engraved with the property name.

The barn was the instigator and the spark for this whole project, our brief was to take the existing Barn and to make it into an inspiring creative space, that’s romantic, a little bit French and a little bit mediaeval. We use lots of reclaimed items from around the country and spent hours days and weeks lining the interior.We sourced lights from overseas and it’s come together in an amazing space a whole scene for the project.

Our favourite part of the property is the amazing grass terrace with an oversize entertaining space. From the hardwood posts, to the festoon lighting, the pizza oven, to the fire pit – what we were really trying to create is a French mediaeval outdoor area, where the expansive skies here at Tambourine can be really enjoyed and to get everybody outside.

The entrance of this amazing property features gorgeous antique train station lights. We designed bespoke gates and stone work to blend with the theme of the property. Also featured are the letterbox, security and cameras. The whole front entrance feels framed and also sets the tone for what’s coming inside now.

A fantastic addition to the project was a refurb of the original bathroom – the goal was to make it into something really farmhouse, really raw, and to play with materials – we used travertine, concrete, recycled timber, brass, beautiful sage green on the walls and a copper pendant warehouse light.

We really appreciate everyone has followed the journey this far and we hope to take you on this journey again next year as we continue stage two with so many more exciting things to show you, stay tuned!
