This whimsical room in the penthouse of the gorgeous, award-winning Le Bain skyscraper in Newstead, Brisbane is like a childhood dream. Part of a wider brief, the Jungle Oasis bedroom was created by Britt White Studios Interiors his designer, Britt Howard, for her two boys aged 7 and her 9. .
Britt worked closely with the boys to understand their needs with a bespoke bunk bed solution born from the design brief.The bespoke bunk bed created by BRC Cabinet has plenty of storage space. (essential in a shared room) and a hidden hole under the stairs, a convenient reading nook for reading a book, and a built-in charger for your electronics. Local craftsman Emmett’s rope designed and hand-tied the ropework for the top bunk bed and lower stanchions.
The room also brings the boys’ individual love of adventure and nature indoors, creating a secluded space they can call their own. The “Garden” wallpaper is “lush” and really creates a “Where the Wilds Things Are” vibe.
“Occupying a skyscraper in Newstead, Brisbane, this project posed a unique challenge for my team. We took inspiration from the river view and surroundings of the penthouse, not to mention the boys’ love of nature, to create a beautiful and functional space that brings Australian design, nature and sustainability to life.” says Britt.
Matt, the homeowner and father of the boys, also praised the room. We’ve created a vibrant, modern family home. The boys spend more time hiding in their jungle room than swimming in the rooftop pool, which was totally unexpected!”
