2022 Australian Interior Design Awards –Shortlisted Residential Decoration
Understanding that a holistic outcome involves the seamless integration of architecture, landscaping and interiors; we were fortunate to be brought on board this project almost a year before handover, which allowed for a considered curation of all the furniture and styling. This house presented a blank slate and the clients placed enormous trust in us to select all the key furniture elements in addition to co-curating artwork, sculpture and object as part of the commission.
The client’s brief was to create a home that was comfortable for her family of boys, but also a calm retreat from the chaos of family life in the form of a relaxed, yet sophisticated living room. These clients weren’t afraid of colour and they embraced strong hues in the overall scheme. Standout pieces include a custom-made Thomas Lentini dining table which was pared with teal-accented chairs by Resident. The hero in the space is undoubtedly the Gubi GMG chaise which we upholstered in a custom zig zag fabric – a metaphor for the studio’s innate desire for perfection.
We didn't have a vision for the interiors, but we knew that we wanted our house to feel complete. We bounced ideas off each other constantly, resulting in some unexpected and delightful results.
Simone came highly recommended and I have so much respect for her. She is super talented and we love the end result. I would do it all over again!
