Toorak residence

Simone assisted the clients of Toorak residence with loose furniture, lighting, art and object. The Friends and Founders La Pipe chair and stool were the starting point for this project and offset beautifully by the solid marble table and Trevor Mein photographic works.

Small touches of stone, brass and linen were integrated into the furniture and objects. The most fun however, was had in the study – where marble wallpaper, a marble pendant light and leather furniture from the Baxter collection created a masculine yet interesting work retreat.

I very much enjoyed working with Simone on this project. I had reservations about the initial concepts presented, but was gently guided by Simone and learnt to trust her intuition. I loved the shopping days and seeing the scheme come together and can’t wait to see what Stage II brings

Along with furnishing the outdoors, Simone also sourced vintage pieces for this project – such as the Italian 50’s stone table which creates the perfect entry statement for this home. 

This project was shortlisted in the 2018 Australian Interior Design Awards Residential Decoration category and the 2018 Interior Design Excellence Awards Residential Decoration category.
