Mt Eliza Beach House

This eclectic family beachside house is located in Mt Eliza on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.
It belongs to Kristan and Tom Dwyer and their four kids.. 

The Dwyer family have lived here for just over a year. Not long after moving in they undertook some basic renovations to modernise and personalise the space – the whole house was recarpeted with Herringbone Sisal, and the interior repainted.  In the hallway and front entrance section of the house, a dramatic effect was achieved using Dulux ‘Domino’ (charcoal), whilst the back rooms were brightened and freshened up with white paint. Additional storage and shelving was added throughout, window furnishings removed and light fittings changed. The result is a stylish and contemporary home that still retains most of its original layout, freshened up with simple cosmetic changes which really brighten and modernise the space.

Kristan has a particularly keen eye for homewares and interior styling, she’s particularly fond of layering vintage elements to create a sense of narrative and depth – she loves her vintage world maps and poster collection. Kristan says what her family loves most about living here is being able to get away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne, whilst still being less than an hour away from the city. The natural beauty of Mt Eliza is peaceful and calming and it has a lovely village community. The beach is at the end of the street and it is a great spot for kids to ride skateboards and bikes as well as surf and swim.
