A historic Sydney home is given a sympathetic and modern makeover to create a light-filled abode.
The living room is a beautifully diverse space. The yellow and white armchairs are covered in ‘Breakwater’ fabric in Lemon by textile designer, Christopher Farr, available from Ascraft. On top of a blue and white ottoman, custom-made by Justin Puddick Upholstery using Quadrille China Seas ‘Island Ikat’, is a Mark Tuckey tray. A Walter G lamp sits on top of a Mark Tuckey stool and a spectacular chandelier from Gypset Cargo looms.
The kitchen was given a quick refresh that included moving the sink, and adding a Zip water filter, extra cupboards and honed Carrara marble. The cabinetry was supplied and fitted by Maroubra Doors & Kitchens, and the brass knob handles are from online store Knobs. Get the look of the flooring with Feast Watson Satin Liming White Floor Finish, from Bunnings.
The beautiful bedhead was custom-made by Justin Puddick Upholstery using the romantic Quadrille China Seas ‘Sultan II’, which is available in Australia through Ascraft. The stunningly textural ‘Sparkle Tufted’ Moroccan Wedding Blanket from Paddo To Palmy is a beautiful foil to chic Country Road sheets and custom-made Walter G velvet cushions. On the oak bedside table is a Freedom lamp and Lumira candle.
The bedhead is custom-made in Quadrille China Seas ‘Lyford Background’ fabric. Sheridan bedding and a hand-loomed ‘Pom Pom’ blanket from Paddo To Palmy creates a sweet scene. Another stunning feature in the room is the framed Hermes scarf artwork. A cream Shack ‘Tub’ chair and a floating bookshelf makes a lovely reading nook.
The beautiful French doors are flung open on sunny days to catch the breeze and light, while everyone gathers for meals in the shady outdoors dining area. The table is adorned with a vibrant striped tablecloth from Paddo to Palmy.
