With a goal to create a relaxed space without formality so to cater for a busy young family, Annie Bowen Design was brought on board to complete this contemporary renovation. The project included a new kitchen, ensuite, bathroom and powder room, decorative lighting, window treatments and furniture.
The view was the main point of inspiration for this home, as it is located up high, with a beautiful outlook over tree-tops to glimpses of the Harbour below.
“The lovely light struck me the minute I arrived.” Said Annie. “The house was very beige and heavy, so we focused on adding clever lighting it in the main living areas. We also included accents of natural timbers, blues, greys and sage greens. In the master bedroom we deepened the wall colour to create a cosier feel and to set this area slightly apart.”
The use of natural timber and Australian designed furniture was an important aspect for the owners. Key pieces from Jardan and Armadillo & Co were incorporated into the home as focal points and worked perfectly with the relaxed family vibe.
“My client was drawn to clean lines and had the need for things to be quite robust due to the practicality of family life. The more the design process evolved, the more she found she really loved the story behind some of these Australian design brands. So, was more than happy to invest in quality. Although there is a simplicity to the design, there is personality to the space and a sense of the people who live there.”
