House Envy: Dated 1940s Beach House to a Modern Family Home!

Today we're taking a peek into Nikki Yazxhi (creator and editor of lifestyle website bellaMUMMA) and Adam Yazxhi's (creative director at Maxco, a brand strategy and design agency) dream family home. 

After contemplating whether they should sell or renovate, the couple decided to stay put in the house and area they love and renovate their 1940s-weatherboard beach home in Avalon on Sydney’s Northern Beaches to create their ultimate dream home for their family of four- Nikki, Adam and their two young boys.
To achieve the simple and elegant interior, a refined palette of neutrals was chosen, using only natural materials such as European oak flooring, marble, stone and brass. Interior designer, Nina Maya designed a space that maintains the home’s original charm, while maximising the indoor areas with added storage. The original wall separating the living area and the kitchen was removed, and to increase the connection to the outside, full-height glass bi-fold doors were installed on the back deck and skylights were used to boost the amount of natural light.

The kitchen is one of the first rooms the family had outgrown. With Adam’s love of cooking and the couple’s passion for entertaining, the kitchen was remodelled and upgraded with new appliances for a modern contemporary space that performed as amazingly as it looked. The kitchen and the benchtop bar are now the hub of the house.

The new kitchen appliances from ASKO were selected for their aesthetic and functionality, like the the ASKO Duo Fusion gas and induction cooktop, the ASKO Elements Pyrolytic Multi Functional Oven, Elements Combi Microwave Oven and Elements Warming drawer were installed for their attractive and hard-wearing qualities. The clean lines, smooth finish, sleek and minimalist design of the ASKO’s Elements range adds to the modern kitchen design.

So let's have sticky beak and see if like me you too get a case of beach house envy!
Safe to say that Nikki and Adam are beyond delighted with the results of the makeover. After three months of renovating and remodelling, the house is the quintessential contemporary dream beach home! Hope you enjoyed this house envy tour of a dated 1940s weatherboard house into a modern family beach home!

Till next time... have a lovely day!
