A classically beautiful yet challenging Sydney terrace house with a narrow footprint, this home was transformed to ensure a sense of light and space whilst comfortably accommodating a family of five.
The dining area, which doubles as a thoroughfare, was furnished with modern classics to create a central feature – a round Zuster table and custom Thonet chairs upholstered in an autumnal Missoni print.
The open plan living at the rear of the terrace house was kept white in order to bounce light around the space and suggest an ethereal feel. It also allowed us to layer textures, patterns, and rich colours within the furnishings, which complimented the art.
The living area showcases Jardan’s Andy sofa in a dark indigo velvet and an Arana swivel armchair in French raspberry linen. White linen curtains billow out onto a charcoal rear courtyard, creating a focal point whilst allowing a harmonious flow inside and out.
The stairs maximise storage and offer a desk niche for home work, while the sheer soft Roman linen blind lets in light yet offers privacy from nearby neighbours.
The main bedroom was transformed into a dark and cosy space, allowing the gloss white fireplace and the vibrant rich Etamine cotton sateen paisley bedhead to truly shine.
