A Gracious Lady
The vision for this project was to renovate and refurbish a special period home adding a modern and functional layout and elegantly incorporate the original details and qualities. Taking inspiration from the intricate and beautiful ceilings and leadlight features, a mix of tactile finishes and seamless design resulted in flow and functionality for the family homeowners. A feeling of openness transcends the home with varying spaces to enjoy. The now light filled kitchen and living area design opens with views onto the repositioned pool which was raised to be aligned with the outdoor flooring. Design of the exterior landscape by Ben Scott created a lush and tranquil oasis with different spaces for relaxation, entertaining and play. The refined and luxurious aesthetic was achieved with a combination of dramatic and delicate interiors in a cool colour palette of varying tones and finishes, closely working with Karyne Murphy.
