House mural the talk of the town

A COLOURFUL wall mural with a “Sydney street art and Melbourne laneway vibe” is creating a stir in a Broadbeach Waters street.
Sydney-native Tegan Musumeci aimed to bring a “little bit of city life” with her when she relocated to the Gold Coast, and her method has garnered plenty of attention.

The Cam Scale larger-than-life mural artwork on her 10 Rio Vista Boulevard home is the talk of Broadbeach Waters.
“We knew locals would either love or hate the mural,” Ms Musumeci said.
“But everyone loves it, the kids get asked about it at school, it’s a showpiece.”
The bespoke mural sets the tone for what is inside.
Ms Musumeci said she wanted to bring something “bright and happy” to Broadbeach Waters but gave the artist a very liberal brief.
“We really wanted Cam to come up with what would suit best, and he took that and ran with it,” she said.
“He told us to let him know whether we wanted the addition of certain colours, but we loved what he came up with and it was exactly what I’d hoped for.
“It makes us feel good when we come home to see the mural.”

Style at every turn.
Covering one entire front panel of the six-bedroom, six-bathroom home, the bespoke mural sets the tone for what is inside the front door of this one-of-a-kind home.
“The whole house is different, which is what we were going for,” she said.
“We appreciate art, and we love the industrial vibe, but we needed to bring warmth into the space and also a practical element to suit our young children,”

The result sees the effortless blending of polished concrete and pendant lighting with the softness of oak floorboards and flowing linen curtains.
“All of the windows are handmade steel, which is very unique, and it took three months to install them,” Ms Musumeci said.
“I love the use of steel and I love the open plan, but I knew we needed the European oak floors to get that warm feeling and it really works well together.”

Ms Musumeci said she struggled to find a home that suited her tastes on the market.
“When we first got here everything was very white and very coastal and while that is beautiful in its own right, it wasn’t us,” she said.
“I feel as if we’ve built a really eclectic house and it suits the beachside lifestyle, but it’s different to a lot of the homes around here.
“The Gold Coast is really evolving, and I think part of that is to do with new people moving here and putting their own touches on things.”
The wine-tasting room.
With two master suites and three ensuite bedrooms, no expense has been spared to create the sophisticated fit-out that is 10 Rio Vista Boulevard.
