Adventure Bay Retreat, The Lair

We were privileged to have worked with our client, Jan Glover, on the interior design for a five star accommodation at Adventure Bay Retreat, The Lair, on Bruny Island. This exquisite retreat showcases Tasmanian furniture design and art to the highest level. 

The beautiful concrete flooring runs throughout the whole accommodation. An opulent rug occupies the living space and complements the outstanding cabinet by Stuart Williams with an image of The Friars off South Bruny.

The interior design for the three bathrooms was carefully considered ensuring they contained a sense of luxury and warmth. The beautiful bespoke basins in each bathroom were designed and made by Hobart ceramicist Lindsey Wherrett. The bowls have a unique texture and have been individually hand thrown. They are a true delight to experience.

The three bedrooms showcase the floating single bed and clipped wing stool in Tas Oak by Simon Ancher. We have introduced some colour and pattern in a contemporary way. In one room there is a monochromatic theme with bold black and white bedding…a fun element. Tasmanian artists Jonathan Partridge, Mandy Renard and Nic Goodwolf feature thoughout the bedrooms and the retreat.

As you descend the staircase, Mandy Renard’s ‘that’s how the light gets in’ looks stunning. It was chosen for it’s dramatic effect, bold colour and movement with the ability to captivate the viewer.

It truly is a sanctuary to be in and was an absolute joy to be involved in the stunning project.
