Style Diaries: Glenfernie Farm’s Black Box Project

Located in the heart of the picturesque Byron Bay hinterland, Glenfernie Farm is a stunning rental weatherboard cottage that offers guests an escape from the hustle and bustle of life. In response to the overwhelming popularity of the Glenfernie cottage, owners Isobel and Millie decided to build the Black Box barn on the property. Nestled among lush gardens and rolling hills, the Black Box is the perfect place to relax and unwind while immersing in the beauty of the Australian countryside.

One of the most striking features of the Black Box is its stunning interior design, which combines traditional rustic elements with modern touches to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The barn is filled with natural light, which is enhanced by the clever use of lighting fixtures and techniques from Lighting Illusions.

In the living room, the striking Airborne Activ ceiling fan hangs above the plush sofa, adding to the sleek, industrial feel of the home. The dining area is illuminated by a cluster of downlights which create a cosy and intimate atmosphere for meals and time with friends and family.

The cottage's bedroom is equally well-appointed, featuring unique lighting fixtures from Lighting Illusions that add to the overall sense of comfort and luxury. Also featured is the same black ceiling fan, which blends in seamlessly with the exterior of the house.

The bathroom in this project features no windows, except a skylight, however the use of neutral colours enhances the overall ambiance, resulting in a bright and ethereal atmosphere. The placement and selection of the wall-mounted exhaust fan in the wet area was meticulously done to seamlessly integrate with the bathroom's interior.

The barn's living and master open up to the sweeping views of the picturesque surrounding hills.
Lighting Illusions lights adorn the exterior of the home, elevating its ambiance and creating an inviting atmosphere.

The Glenfernie Farm Black Box is a stunning example of the perfect country retreat. With its charming exterior, stylish and comfortable interior, and expertly designed lighting and cooling fixtures, it is the ideal place to escape from the stresses of modern life and reconnect with nature and oneself.
