With the vision of a warm, inviting family home as a starting point, it’s crucial a room-to-room interior design offers space, comfort and liveability for all family members.
The owners of this spacious Plenty home needed the professional guidance of an interior designer to supplement the plans they had for its completed state. The house was newly-built, so they commissioned me to provide a holistic fitout across the master bedroom, study, entrance hall, kitchen, living room, dining room, rumpus room, TV room and childrens’ bedrooms.
The master bedroom redesign began with imported Japanese Grass wallpaper for all four walls. I added custom-made blinds, silk curtains, an upholstered bed head and bedroom chair. To complete the look I sourced imported bedside tables, bed stools, a console table and bedside lights.
Dark chocolate-brown imported Japanese grass wallpaper was added to all four walls in the study. Next I added silk block out curtains, a custom-made timber desk with a leather inlay and custom-made armchairs. A glass chandelier was installed as the room’s vivacious centrepiece.
The client had chosen a red splashback for the kitchen, so using it as my inspiration; I sourced a locally-made red and white pendant light which was fitted above the island bench. Finally, I commissioned custom-made faux-ostrich red kitchen stools.
A custom-made modular sofa and a pair of fully-upholstered swivel chairs were made to suit the living room’s openness and natural flow. I designed a rug to suit the area and placed an upholstered ottoman designed to serve also as a coffee table.
The dining room required a custom-made table complete with eight fully-upholstered chairs. I decorated the space with dynamic locally-sourced art pieces and hung a US-imported pendant light above the table to contribute contrasting light upon the naturally bright space.
