Immerse Yourself in Nature With This Mid-Century Modern-Inspired Home Devoid of White

House Tour

ABI Interiors

Just a short drive from Byron Bay sits this mid-century modern home, seemingly unearthed from its very landscape. The warm, beige tones envelop the space, creating a perpetual warmth amidst the minimalist decor and grey facade. Organic elements like travertine floor tiles and limewash paint anchor this light-filled, high-ceiling house, further enhancing the sense of being grounded in nature.

Meticulously curated by the team at Salisbury Building Projects⁠, Billi Palms exemplifies the seamless blend of mid-century modern design, rustic European touches, and serene Japandi bathroom aesthetics. Despite its somewhat modest square footage, the open-plan layout, minimalist aesthetics, and soaring ceilings imbue the home with an expansive feel, transcending its physical dimensions.

Upon entry, you'll find yourself enveloped in a sanctuary of light, where textures intertwine to create an oasis of serenity and style.

The main floor of the house seamlessly encompasses the entryway, lounge, dining, and kitchen into a cohesive open-plan layout, differentiated only by varying levels.

Notably, the upper level showcases unique micro-cement flooring; its intricate patterns are inspired and actually crafted by palm fronds discovered on the property. These etched lines beautifully contrast with the organic limewashing detailing adorning the adjacent wall, showcasing a genuine dedication to craftsmanship that infuses additional warmth and character into the space.

In the living and dining areas, expansive floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the space in natural light, enhancing the home's warm hues, while rusted steel kitchen pendant lamps, corten steel doors, and a cast iron fireplace add an industrial element to balance the scheme.

A stained glass circular window perched above the kitchen sink features parrots nestled in trees, perfectly positioned as if really in the foliage beyond. Not only is this window a charming focal point, but it also harmonises with the Elysian Commercial Pull-Out Kitchen Mixer below — enhancing the overall flow of the predominantly angular design.

To the right, floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving provides an ideal platform for styling, while concealed cabinetry effectively hides any daily clutter for swift tidying.

Without deviating too much from the home's earthy colour palette, both the primary and ensuite bathrooms play with a subtle bout of colour, showcasing a subdued pastel-maroon scheme — elegantly complemented by our brushed copper tapware.

A floating vanity, bench-mounted basin, wall-mounted tapware, and additional built-in cabinetry maintain the seamless flow throughout the home, offering a sense of ease as if the residence anticipates and fulfils your needs effortlessly.

Of course, the immersive experience of the landscape outside wouldn’t be complete without including floor-to-ceiling louvres and a skylight overhead to flood the space with ample natural light, the simplicity of the overall design echoing calming Japandi principles.
