Angler’s Shack on Victoria’s Philip Island is the family holiday home of designer and stylist Simone Haag. Phillip Island Beach Shack: We knew exactly what we wanted to do with the space. Which was for it to feel welcoming, eclectic and very much feel like the old place, just contemporised by way of furniture, art and styling
'I love using blue because of the different moods it can create. A pale blue can be so lovely and soft in an interior, while a dark blue can really draw you in and be quite striking.' Photography by Fiona Storey and styling by Simone Haag.
Phillip Island Beach Shack: My favourite furniture piece would be the slung lounge chairs which I fell in love with, whilst at the Stockholm furniture fair. They bring a 1970s vibe to the shack and are super comfortable, particularly for little people as they are like a hammock for them!
Phillip Island Beach Shack: We relined the bathroom walls with timber, replaced the bathroom basin and added interesting door hardware and towel rails. The bathroom is painted in Haymes Yucca, and the choice was helped along by an Instagram ‘committee’. I would post images of the different shades of green I was considering, and get input from hundreds of people following along on the journey.
Phillip Island Beach Shack: The interior of our home in Melbourne is white, and the exterior is black, so I decided where possible to invert the colours for the beach house, so it would feel completely different.

Kari painted the bed a light shade of grey to set it apart from the walls, and painted the old desk (a Craigslist find) a bright white to match. Batman decals are arranged in a regular pattern. Mom also painted a large decorative canvas with chalkboard paint and built a frame with cedar trim. "It was wildly inexpensive and turned out really, really fun," she shares.
