A Cottage with Views in Byron Bay

Issue 82 · Australia by Design · July 25, 2013

A hideaway, weatherboard cottage overlooking Byron Bay has 360 degrees of uninterrupted sweeping ocean-to-mountain views. Can you think of a better way to enjoy the natural wonders of Australia’s Gold Coast?

Owners and designers Robert Schwamberg and Andrea Duff of Strangetrader Design have designed the Byron View Farm cottage to be practical and homey but beautiful at the same time. Inveterate travelers, their approach to design is organic; evolving naturally and changing always, finding inspiration in their most recent trip. For information on staying, see Byron View Farm
