A sophisticated apartment in Sydney. An apartment with a view to die for. But what do you do when the view is so iconic, so overwhelming and just so “there”? Don’t fight it, don’t compete with it, don’t ignore it. Celebrate it. A retrained palette, luxurious but understated finishes. White walls that bounce the bright Australian light deep into the apartment and extend the sense of space. Dark floors ground, provide a solid base for this aerie perched as it is above the Sydney harbour between bridge and opera house. Causal elegant, the finer things but no posturing, no pretense. Definitely a trophy apartment but also very much a home. Interior design by Sarah Davidson.
Contemporary Australian interior design at its best. A lofty statement but true. Part playful, part disciplined approach to spatial design. Pushing boundaries, appreciating the little details. Passion, creativity, enthusiasm, and freshness. Purity of design, an understanding of how people need a space to work, a love of materials and colour. Mardi Doherty and Fiona Lynch. Doherty Lynch. Bright, new Australian design. Inspiring.
Happy weekend everyone! It is very hot here. Summer seems to have come early… very early! Sitting upstairs at a computer dripping sweat onto the keyboard isn’t my idea of fun. I would rather be downstairs in the cave like cool of my colonial brick house working on a new painting. It’s like an old fashioned cold box down there. Cool in more ways than one 🙂 I think this modern terrace house in Surry Hills, Sydney I found stalking might just be a cool place too. Wooden floors, walls that slide open nice and wide. If there is a breeze I bet it gets funneled through. And if it is still too hot then you would find me standing under a cold shower staring at the bright blue sky. Link here while it lasts.
I have to admit I was a bit embarrassed when Clair emailed to let us know about the interior design firm in Vancouver she works for – Angela Robinson. I was not at all familiar with this firm….and I LOVE their work! Have I been living under a rock?! So here is a glimpse into the wonderful world of interiors as thoughtfully devised and beuatifully executed by Angela and her team.
