The resort look.

Feel like you are on holiday in your own home. The definition of a resort is “a place of relaxation and recreation; a holiday destination.” Imagine living like that every day. Renowned interior designer James Treble knows how to give your home this look and feel.

The Resort Look James Treble
James Treble's Resort themed styles although are unique with their own characteristics all have an incredible liveable and inviting appeal.

The Australian Coastal style

The Australian Coastal Look is reminiscent of relaxed and contemporary ocean side living. The use of weathered materials and textures together with natural materials like rattan, wicker, and cotton to just name a few create that easy carefree ambience. A neutral colour palette and the use of white or off white woodwork and detail allows for a fresh ‘‘summer all year round” feel. For added casual elegance, use colour in accessories and layer soft furnishings. With the Australian Coastal look you can almost smell the salt air….

Island Retreat

Pops of colour and lots of lush indoor plants are crucial to achieving the essence of a tropical Island Retreat. Light to medium timber tones in furniture and floors, fresh white walls and natural materials are the perfect base to echo the land and brilliant blues, greens and yellows in soft furnishing and accessories echo the vibrancy of tropical rainforests and beaches. Natural fabrics that are casually layered and sheer flowing drapes add to a relaxed and airy atmosphere. The Island Retreat look is sure to make your own home feel more like a tranquil haven.

Singapore Resort

Combine the best design elements of a sophisticated high end hotel with relaxed living and you get the Singapore Resort look. Large expanses of glass, high ceilings, light wall colour contrasting with rich dark timbers, crisp white line, sleek plantation shutters, warm woven textures in soft furnishings and oversized furniture pieces all come together to give a contemporary casual elegance to your home.


The Mediterranean makes one think of picturesque blue and green waters, centuries old cobbled streets and rustic rendered walls warmed by the sun. Natural materials like timber and stone have a raw timeless quality and are essential to achieving this look. Set these materials against stark white or richly coloured walls in a painted or rendered finish to reflect the warmth and character of this unique style. Add bright colours in accent tiles and décor like cushions, throws and soft furnishings to contrast with the natural appeal of rattan and wicker furniture. The Mediterranean look oozes warmth and says “welcome” all year round.
