The Ultimate Beach House Choice -  Neale Whitaker

Samsung The Frame TV

For the living room, Neale chose a state-of-the-art Samsung The Frame TV, which has the ability to turn its screen in to a beautiful piece of artwork when not in use, allowing it to be the feature piece of the room.

“I want a home to shine with personality so I don’t believe in sticking to any hard and fast rules about what a beach house should look like”. With this in mind, The Frame TV is the perfect choice, allowing the lucky winner to select their favourite artwork to reflect their own style.

Globewest Benjamin Ripple Coffee Table 

This beautiful table is filled with texture and bold shapes, featuring a sleek metal base and rippled timber sides. The solid marble top with contrasting veining is the perfect match to the light, bright living space. 

“What I’ve done throughout is keep the palette very neutral; I’ve used tones of white, cream and pale grey, and for interest, I’ve added natural textures. I’ve added wood, wicker, grass, everything that is tonal and neutral to keep it interesting and soft and to allow that magnificent ocean view to be the hero.”
