For the final instalment of my clients’ beautiful home in Sydney, I would like to share with you some images from the master bedroom and three girl’s room.

The master bedroom was transformed into a tranquil and calm haven for rest and relaxation, using the existing carpet and dark timber furniture from Coco Republic as a contrast to the classic blue and white scheme. The design featuring a pretty damask wallpaper, large check linen window treatments, a small gingham check on the bedstool and cushions. This was balanced with a plain linen upholstered bedhead.

We added some glamour with the mirrored bedside tables, Moravian star pendant light and silver leaf bedstool, then toned it down with the plain ceramic lamps and textural bed linens.

For the daughters’ bedrooms, each decided on their own style and colour scheme and helped create the look of each room. The eldest teenage daughter’s bedroom was designed to more reflect her age, replacing the twin beds with a double and using colours, furnishings, fabrics and accessories more suited to a teenager. She chose the new shabby chic style floral bedlinen and the blue chevron wallpaper and hot pink leopard fabric were selected to complement the colours in it.

The middle daughter wanted a French inspired room, and chose new Pottery Barn Kids bedlinen which launched the palette of pale pink and grey. We added the chandelier, desk and chair, rug and new roman blind.

The third youngest daughter’s bedroom was brightened up using a gorgeous apple green trellis wallpaper, pulling out the green from the existing roman blind fabric and canvas artwork which was kept. The room was updated to reflect that of a little girl instead of toddler, and to allow her to grow into it. With the addition of new bed linen, a vanity table, chair, lamp and rug the room became pretty, fresh and bright.

All in all, it was a wonderful and immensely rewarding project, at times challenging and sometimes overwhelming, but as I mentioned in the first post, made all the more enjoyable thanks to such terrific clients who I hope I will have the chance to work with again. It was certainly a great way to end the year.

I hope you have enjoyed the tour of their beautiful home and I thank them for allowing me to share it with you.

    It all looks fabulous, what lucky little girls, I bet they are thrilled with their new rooms. I am over feature walls so I love how you have used wallpaper on four walls. Love those cushions on the cocoa sofa, are they available to buy or made to order?

    • Melinda says:

      All the cushions are custom made. I agree, I have never been a fan of feature walls, I always say if you are going to do it, do the whole room, otherwise it just looks skimpy and out dated.

    Love your style amazing what a few changes can do. The colours and wall papers chosen are very nice and the furnishings also. Beautiful home well done

    Beautiful Mel. All fresh and classic, and will last in style. I have never liked feature walls. They always look to me as though you have run out of your other paint, or wallpaper! Congratulations on such an amazing project!

  4. HI Melinda, You’ve done a stunning job! Can you please tell me where you found the curtain rods? Thank you.

  5. Jean says:

    I love everything you do and I look forward to your posts. I was so inspired by the transformation of the cloakroom (and indeed all the other rooms) in this house, that my own is being decorated this week, using the same wallpaper! It will cheer up the wintery weather here in the UK!
