Last week I began the story of the renovation of my clients’ home in Turramurra in Sydney. You can view the post here. Now to show you more of their lovely home.
The former playroom was to be repurposed as a home office, a sophisticated yet masculine study, where the master of the house could retreat from a house full of girls and work after hours. This gave me the perfect chance to break from the blue and white theme and introduce something a bit different, but which would complement the broader theme.
My clients had already purchased the stunning desk and deer from Hamptons House, which was a great starting point and helped set the tone for the scheme. The beautiful grasscloth wallpaper, mix of textures and fabrics, lighting, furniture, rug and decorative objects all fell into place.Above image – Chadwick Real Estate
My clients wanted the living room and dining room to be more polished and elegant, taking a departure from the blue and white of the more casual rooms, and choosing a palette of greeny grey, ivory, taupe with accents of black and silver leaf accessories. The crystal globe chandeliers from Coco Republic were already installed, and helped set the more formal tone for the room. We chose a lovely mix of patterned and plain fabrics in various textures, and repeated them in curtains, upholstery and trim with everything custom made. The new fireplace was installed along with the timber flooring continued throughout.
The theme was continued in the dining room, and I’m so glad my clients were happy to go for a round dining table, as it really worked in the space.
In the next post, I will feature the bedrooms where we used lots of beautiful wallpapers and fabrics.
