Explore More Stylish Homes Peek inside exquisite properties and boutique accommodation across Australia and hear what the architects, interior designers and homeowners have to say. Stepping inside the sprawling 25-acre property of Amileka for the first time, it’s easy to feel like you’re a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay. Situated on the lush hills for which the Hinterland is known and dotted with ancient fig trees; the compound is a world unto itself. And this is the beauty of Amileka – it’s close enough to Byron to enjoy the buzz of Australia’s best surf town, but far enough away that it still feels like your own slice of secluded bliss. It’s this feeling of peacefulness and tranquility that the owners of Amileka wanted to champion the most during the transformation of the five-bedroom retreat, which they purchased in September 2022. While the property already had an incredible, timeless structure thanks to the masterful eye of architect Sharon Fraser, the owners turned to Natalie Spadavecchia from The Palm Co. to give the interiors a modern and minimalist refresh. “We love Natalie’s pragmatic approach to style versus cost. She’s created amazing ‘wow’ moments throughout the home within manageable budgets,” Mark Britt, owner of Amileka and technology and media executive, explains. Working closely with Natalie, the team opted for a natural colour palette, ensuring nothing detracted from the pièce de résistance of the location – the stunning views! “We wanted the home to be part of the landscape,” Mark says. It’s no coincidence then that Amileka boasts several open and expansive living areas with large windows that hero the breathtaking vistas and let the sunlight dance into the home. “The colours and light change throughout the seasons, and the most spectacular moments are when the house is bathed in pink as the sun settles behind the rolling hills,” Mark notes. When comes to the decor, it didn’t make sense for Amileka to have delicate or precious items. “It is a home, not a museum,” says Mark who often stays with his five children when it’s not otherwise rented out to guests. “We wanted it to feel special but usable.” Amileka can sleep up to 10 guests and the property is decked out perfectly to cater to large groups. With a versatile al fresco dining area, an 18-metre, in-ground swimming pool, a spacious fire pit, farm animals, and a mini matching fort playground for the kids, guests are spoiled for choice with how best to enjoy this unforgettable destination. As for how a guest may spend a typical day here, the opportunities are endless. “You could start your day with freshly squeezed orange juice from fruit plucked from the orchard, followed by a refreshing dip in the pool. You might pick up supplies from Federal, which is just two minutes away, or Bangalow, which is a 20-minute drive, to cook up a feast for your family and have a long, lazy lunch under the ancient Black Bean tree. In the afternoon, you could watch a movie in the surround-sound media room, followed by gathering kindling and marshmallow roasting sticks from the forest for use by the firepit at night,” Mark muses. Since opening its doors in September 2023, Amileka has hosted several groups who have all had happy and memorable stays. “It’s a luxurious sanctuary for families and friends to come together to connect and unwind,” Mark says. “It is a home, not a museum.

There’s no doubt that this slice of paradise knows how to show off – in the best way! Things to Do With so many things to do on the Mornington Peninsula, you will be spoilt for choice when planning your stay.

Whilst calm beaches provide the perfect canvas for swimming, diving, sailing and paddle boarding. People have long been flocking to this region for a taste of the Mornington Peninsula, and for good reason. Menus champion the paddock-to-plate ethos, and ocean-fresh seafood is a given. What’s more, the café culture rivals that of Melbourne’s. Add into the mix farmgate produce, weekly markets and some of the best wineries in the state – from leading cellar doors to small, picturesque vineyards worth searching out – and you’re all but guaranteed to come home with a bounty of delicious local goods. One of Mornington Peninsula’s star attractions is its hot springs. From the quintessential Peninsula Hot Springs to the evocative new Alba Thermal Springs & Spa, these are places where you’re encouraged to slow down, recharge and restore.

HOME DESIGN How to Brighten upYour Backyard this Summer Founder and Creative Director of Landart, Matt Leacy, reveals how to breathe some new life into our backyards this season. 08

With summer well and truly here, that means our outdoor spaces are set to get a workout. Think goldenhour sundowners, long lunches and reading a great book before having a cheeky nap in the afternoon sun (under an umbrella, of course). But if you’re looking at your outdoor area and thinking it could do with a little spruce ahead of the warmer months, we’ve got you covered. We speak to garden guru, Matt Leacy, as he talks us through the key outdoor trends to expect this summer, and his best backyard tips and tricks. Looking for more home design inspiration? For styling tips, interior design trends and roundups of the hottest new furniture on the market, visit A Touch of the Med A popular theme that will be dominating outdoor spaces and gardens this season will be a subtle Mediterranean influence, Matt says. To embrace a touch of the Med, while maintaining a timeless aesthetic, Matt recommends updating your outdoor area with a fresh, neutral colour palette, balanced out with splashes of colours like greens and blue hues. “It’s a Mediterranean vibe – but not overdone or as a full theme. These neutral colours will be teamed with natural materials such as timber and stone,” he explains. In terms of plants, Matt says opting for olive trees and succulents is another simple but effective way to bring the Med to your garden. “The planting palette has a big impact too. Think rosemary, bougainvillea, mounded shapes with some more architectural succulents,” he adds. Take the Plunge Matt also points out the rise in popularity of plunge pools, with many homeowners preferring how much more low maintenance they are for busy families with minimal backyard space. “Because they’re a much smaller size there’s also the option to tile them in beautiful tile choices that may be cost-prohibitive for a larger pool. And with jet technology, there’s still the ability to swim ‘laps’ in a plunge pool or turn it into a large ice bath,” he says of its versatility. Alternatively, you can opt for a built-in ice bath, which is also on the rise. “Built-in ice baths, or a space to accommodate an ice bath are also popular as more people lean into the health benefits of them. As are saunas – we’ve created some amazing bespoke glass saunas in a couple of our projects recently,” he says. Size Doesn’t Always Matter Of course, not all of us have sprawling backyards. If you have a smaller backyard or courtyard, Matt has a few tricks up his sleeve for maximising small spaces. “Playing with scale and size is important. Big things in small spaces can create the illusion that the space is bigger, as well as bring a sense of drama to the space. Light colours will also help give the illusion that spaces are bigger than they are,” the landscaping pro reveals. As for greenery in compact areas, Matt says: “If you’d like an edible garden but have very limited space, look at ways to include the edible element in your overall garden design and plantings. Herbs such as rosemary make great trimmed mounded forms if you hedge them to shape.” Eco-Friendly Choices Environmentally friendly outdoor spaces are also becoming increasingly popular with Matt noting rooftop gardens are a great way to create additional green space. “Rooftop gardens will provide natural insulation as well as improve water holding capabilities and they look beautiful,” he says. “On a simpler level, and something that the average gardener can implement, is creating a rain garden either in garden beds or in an elevated planter. And choosing water-wise, drought-resistant plants is also important for a sustainable outdoor space – especially as we’re about to go into a hot, dry summer,” he adds. Be Strategic Finally, Matt recommends being strategic about what kind of big-ticket items you invest in. “If you like to go all out and create amazing dining occasions, a large table and comfortable seating will be your go-to. Or if your style is more cocktail entertaining, you might go for more lounge and coffee table seating, perhaps some bar stools and a bench,” Matt explains.
