Product: HW2208 Alsace

For many of us, we’ve created happy memories of beachside holidays with family and friends during the summer season. Which is why, when those colder months arrive, it’s common to became afflicted by a ‘case of longing for those sunny, carefree summer days.’ The solution? While we’re yet to discover a way to control the weather, design choices can be dictated. When approached by a family to create the perfect ‘land-based yacht on the beach,’ Phil Anstey from Anstey Homes, a multi-award winning NSW custom home builder, knew just where to source the flooring.

Working with Havwoods since 2010, Phil recommended that his clients explore our extensive collection of products as he was confident that his customers would find a high-quality product perfectly suited to their design vision. After ordering a few different samples via the website, a resource that Phil describes as useful and prompt, the client decided on the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Certified Pureplank Alsace; the beautiful whitewashed details and character grade seamlessly emulating the key elements of the brief – whitewashed, oceanic and driftwood design. 

As a finishing touch, ‘vibrant in color’ art prints and splashes of green inject that nonchalance feeling of lounging at the beach, surrounded by nothing but fresh salty air and the sound of crashing waves against the shore. The result is the perfect family home for beating those winter woes!
