Nestled in the heart of Bright, Victoria, Leader Reef stood as a testament to a bygone era—greige and unassuming. Envisioned as a sanctuary for a retired couple enamoured with country-style living, its potential lay dormant until Britt White Studio undertook a transformative endeavour. Commissioned by a dynamic couple in their 30s, the studio spearheaded a complete revitalisation, infusing the home with a contemporary Scandinavian alpine allure.

The property’s new custodians, a spirited Melbourne-based entrepreneurial duo, sought a winter haven enveloped in the ambiance of Canadian and Japanese mountain culture. A vision emerged, drawing inspiration from the rugged mountainous terrain, birthing a moody yet inviting second home—a sanctuary for winter escapes and spirited gatherings.

Initially compartmentalised and facing inward, the home underwent a structural metamorphosis. Spaces were reconfigured, embracing open-plan design and accentuating breathtaking panoramas through floor-to-ceiling glazing. The once-hidden spectacle of surrounding mountain peaks now took centre stage, redefining the home’s connection to its awe-inspiring backdrop.

Defined as ‘Scandinavian Alpine,’ the aesthetic palette married neutral tones with touches of warmth—oak timbers softened the starkness of black, white, and grey. Modular square edge batton profiles adorned walls and cabinets, juxtaposing straight geometry with softened curves, culminating in a contemporary, inviting ambiance.

Beyond its visual appeal, the redesign catered to practicality, birthing a retreat from bustling city lives—a secret office, redesigned kitchens, bathrooms, and reinvigorated living spaces. Each element meticulously curated, from furniture to finishings, culminating in a space that transcends mere renovation—it’s a transformative narrative.

The clients’ reaction echoed pure elation, a sentiment that transcended a mere renovation. For them, it’s a haven—a hug amidst the wintry embrace, an escape from the ordinary into a realm of solace and sanctuary.
