Styling the Adam Robinson way: The Clovelly Residence

As you know, we’re all about celebrating Aussie design and living the good life, outdoors. So when this beautifully styled project (styled by Adam Robinson), passed our desks we knew we had to share some of the story behind it.

Having trained in both landscape construction and design as well as interior design and decoration, Adam has a unique perspective which allows him to design and style outdoor spaces with the same sensitivity others may only apply to the indoors.

Believing that “everyone needs their own little sanctuary to escape to,” Adam set up his own landscape design company in 2011, and the list of projects to his name are as impressive as they are beautiful.

And here we have Clovelly House. Styled for landscape company Harrisons Landscaping, Adam began at his usual starting point, by taking inspiration from the space’s architectural and garden style, and allowing his concept to be complementary.

Clovelly House, Adam tells us, “was a contemporary clean grade space so it was calling for the same in furniture.

“I know Tait’s Jak and Jil setting well. The clean lines and modern approach work in well, so it was a no brainer. I wanted furniture that visually breathed and didn’t clutter up the space and this did the trick.”

Another highlight of this outdoor retreat is the combination of materials used.

Designing with raw concrete, timber and charcoal painted render walls, the garden and lawn really work to soften the look as a whole.

“I love the masculine design and simplicity of the space,” says Adam, “it’s hard to believe you can fit outdoor pavilion, pool and lawn into one small space but as it’s been designed well it works.”

We love the way all of the elements at play complement one another and work in harmony. We’re even more excited to see that Tait outdoor furniture were chosen to help achieve this look.
