MY HOUSE IDEA: Onxy in Palm Beach – MyHouseIdea

A new tone of Melbourne-inspired design has arrived in Palm Beach with one of the booming beachside suburb’s finest residential opportunities, Onyx now complete. Designed by Story Design Collective and constructed by local Palm Beach builders, a husband and wife team Nicquel and Sam Carmichael of Carmichael Build, ONYX has been crafted utilising the couple’s love for inspired architecture and Sam’s 20 years’ experience as a carpenter and registered builder.


Unapologetically bold, Onyx sports a dramatic dark colour palette contrasting with abundant natural textures and lush greenery throughout.
Mrs Carmichael, who has a background in development management, says the property’s prominent moody colour palette is inspired by renowned Melbourne architecture and interior design and has been employed to mark Onyx as a point of difference in the coastal seaside suburb.

“Traditionally, people on the Gold Coast have tended to shy away from darker tones in architecture, however, there seems to be a new wave of custom architectural homes using bold black interiors and exteriors in coastal suburbs across the city and buyers are welcoming it,” says Mrs Carmichael. “The Eagle House at Burleigh Heads that recently sold and other multimillion-dollar new builds at Koala Park, feature comparable colour palettes and similar striking design elements.”

“When done right, black can be sophisticated and alluring. It is a statement of strength and boldness but also one of comfort and in feng shui, black represents the water element and is symbolic of calmness and depth.”

This level of architecture in Palm Beach and the Southern end of the Gold Coast is sure to inspire other developments in the suburb to push the boundaries of traditional design. Designed to capture light and sea breezes, Onyx’s ground level features 2.7 metre high ceilings and fluid transitions between the living spaces and the property’s multiple alfresco terraces including a pool area, entertaining deck, built-in barbeque, and sunken fire pit.
