On Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, a coastal cottage-turned-contemporary family home by Deanne Penberthy Jolly Interior Design takes its cues from the tones and textures found in the surrounding landscape, providing a peaceful sanctuary for its owners. Nestled within the lush, undulating countryside and featuring a stunning, olive tree-lined driveway, the home's earthy palette blends beautifully into its rural setting, while natural, textural elements lend a laidback beach house aesthetic and a 'holiday at home' appeal that serves as a reminder of its proximity to the ocean.
A strong connection to the outdoors is key, with generous picture windows in the living room framing views of the deck. On the sofa, our Flocca Linen Cushion in Russo and our Crush Linen Throw in Brun lend warmth to a cool, neutral backdrop of soft greys and dark charcoal accents, softening the angular lines of the windows and fireplace. Deanne's interior design approach takes cues from nature, with layers of timber, stone, concrete and leather unfolding alongside soft furnishings and handcrafted objects.

In the light-filled main bedroom, our Flocca Linen Bedhead provides an elegant backdrop for Basix pillows in Nox, Flocca European pillows in Brun, our Carmel duvet, and our pure linen bed skirt and generous body cushion in light, sandy Sable, while our Crush Linen Throw in Tempest adds a final textural layer. On the bench seat, a cosy trio of Carmel, Nox and Sable/Nox stripe cushions invite rest and relaxation.
