The home of Mark and Louella Tuckey on Sydney’s Northern beaches completely seduced us (and many of you!) when we photographed it last summer… and one full year later, re-visting these pics still makes my heart skip a beat! Honestly, does the quintessential Australian beach house get any better than this?
Mark and Louella’s home opens right onto the sand at sparkling Clareville beach, like some kind of picture-perfect film location. It is also, of course, expertly decorated by stylist Louella, full to the brim of Mark’s distinctive timber furniture, homewares and soft furnishings sourced by the pair for their stores in Sydney and Melbourne, and artwork by many talented friends, including David Bromley, Rachel Castle, and the late David Band. Despite the extreme photogenicism of these surroundings, there is something so effortless and truly relaxed about this space – at heart, it really is just a rambling Aussie beach shack.
‘The location speaks for itself, but the house is so pure beach shack, it really is a little old farmhouse by the water’ says Louella.
If you’re a fan of the Tuckeys’ distinctive decorating aesthetic, do check out their latest project – ‘The Tabletop Project‘, in which a host of Australian creatives share their ultimate Christmas table!
