Last year we were asked to create a new colour palette and to add new furniture and fittings to this character-filled, Sydney home interior. We designed the concept of the interior around the rich colour of the existing Turkish rug, making it the focal point of the room. We highlighted the architectural details, the cornices, picture rails and timber architraves, by using colours and toning down the wall colour to create a greater sense of space. We customised the sofa and armchair, upholstered with woven fabric in grey, blue and off-white and customised the pendant light shades for each area with beautiful linen fabrics. To increase the versatility of the guest room interior, we added a sofa bed which could be unfolded when necessary for guests, and folded back to a sofa. The overall interior finish has a calm, uplifting feeling as you walk throughout the home. Here are a selection of before and after shots.

The hallway was a dark space that needed a welcome lift!


Now the hallway is fresh and inviting!


The lounge room.


Within the lounge room, we added new furniture amongst the existing, hereby creating a lovely space to relax.

The door to the guest bedroom can be left open as it will always look fabulously neat and tidy. The sofa can be transformed into a bed for extra guests to stay. The beautiful details of a silk and wool rug, which just finishes the room.
