Case Study Island Bay Villa - Family Home

Island Bay Villa Case Study

In home consultation completed by our team at the Wellington BoConcept Store.
This beautiful villa is located in the heart of Island Bay, Wellington. Our client, a young family who recently relocated from Auckland came to us with a brief to create a modern styled home that blended with the character of the villa. The client had previously shopped with BoConcept before in Auckland and loved our Scandinavian inspired pieces. They wanted to incorporate some of their existing furniture, their previously purchased BoConcept pieces and then introduce new styles as well. We immediately knew this was going to be a great challenge and a fun project on with this young family.  

 Island Bay Living Room 

This light filled, spacious separate living room required functional furniture to accommodate the needs of a young growing family but also needed character and style. We chose our Osaka sofa in Turquoise Napoli for its comfort factor and its true Scandinavian style. The 3 seater is a great size and fitted perfectly within this space. The leather Imola chair is definitely the feature piece in this room but the colour and style of the chair compliment the Osaka sofa beautifully and the pair complete the overall Scandinavian look.

Both styles are great for comfort and relaxation which was the ideal look for the client in this room. The glass Adria coffee and side tables help keep the space feeling light while the white nest of small Cartagena tables are a subtle blend with the wall colour and also help break up the furniture shapes. Our Safi rug helped add some warmth and texture to this space while not taking over the room.

The next room which needed some new furniture options was a secondary living space which was also the kitchen and dining spaces combined. The clients already owned our Monte chair in Tobacco Estorial Leather and our Morocco rug so they wanted to find some complimenting pieces to work alongside these. Because this space adjoins with the separate family room we decided to keep the Scandinavian theme throughout to create a sense of continuity but take a more monochromatic approach to help this room stand out on its own.

 The Carmo sofa was the perfect choice for this space. The clients loved the style and the modular pieces which allowed them to configure it in many different ways for different occasions. As they have a young child and are growing their family we opted for a dark grey felt fabric for this piece. The Carmo leather ottoman was chosen to connect the new sofa with the existing leather armchair and is also great as a coffee table, extra seating option or chaise end. This space needed to be a social and friendly environment and allow a natural flow from the kitchen and dining areas as well.

Island Bay Kitchen Dining 

The kitchen and dining areas share the perfect open plan living entrance straight out onto a great patio at the back of the home. The dining table was existing and obviously so was the kitchen cabinetry so to help add some balance to these spaces we added dark London dining chairs to the white dining table and then white and brushed steel Torup bar stools to the dark kitchen cabinetry. 

Island Bay Outdoor Living 

This helped connect both areas together but still allows them to be their own spaces. The Adelaide outdoor furniture was an obvious choice to help connect the indoor and outdoor flow as the white and wood option blends perfectly with the interior colours.
The BoConcept take on the Scandinavian style has worked seamlessly throughout this light home and was a great look for this design conscious young family. Each space has its own character and individual style but the flow from room to room is easy and timeless.
