PROJECT: Private Residence – Flinders

Whilst specifying, sourcing and supplying the hard finishes for this project, the team at KWD worked closely with a Mornington Peninsula developer to satisfy their vision of creating the perfect Flinders beach house.  The developer wanted an interior that generates a relaxed coastal feel, however at the same time, aimed to incorporate rustic farmhouse elements to construct the perfect balance of coast and country that encapsulates the essence of Flinders itself.


Keeping this in mind, the team at KWD worked tirelessly to source the perfect products that satisfied this particular brief. A palette of natural finishes were chosen to reflect the calming coastal air of the property, using divine American Oak floorboards for the common areas, natural sisal loop carpet for the bedrooms, and by importing sublime Turkish Travertine to tile the bathroom from floor to ceiling.




The balance of coast and country was reflected in the choice to use handmade subway tiles laid in the on trend herringbone pattern, that paired back to and mimicked the vaulted ceiling with exposed triangular beams.




At the completion of the project, both the team at KWD and the developer of the property were more than happy with the outcome, where the careful selection of hard finishes saw the design brief fully satisfied. The property was recently sold by Kay and Burton Flinders. A link to their listing can be found below.

At KWD we look at a project holistically. The sum of all the parts make the whole story work, and it’s this unique approach that sets us apart. The KWD experience provides a streamlined process. We specify, source and supply all hard finishes as well as carpets, rugs, custom furniture and soft furnishings, and manage the procurement, warehousing, freight and quality so every project is worry free. We work closely with interior designers, architects, developers and home-owners, selecting the ideal flooring, designing the perfect joinery and choosing the right paint colours for a wide range of design aesthetics. From finding the perfect paving stones and pool tiles to offering landscaping advice, KWD manages the whole design process. One contact, one invoice and staged deliveries ensure peace of mind. KWD's extensive global network of manufacturers, importers, agents and local wholesalers ensures the selected products are always available. Key supply partners are chosen for their ability to fulfil each project requirement, while our contract negotiation skills will always provide the most outstanding pricing. We often engage architects, draftsmen, lighting designers and builders to complete the design process. We embrace a consultative approach and develop lasting relationships with each and every client. It’s what the KWD team knows and loves. “Design is not a thing we do. It’s our way of life.” Kate Walker
