One would not have imagined how this Gold Coast house could be transformed so completely! Clients with a love of colour, mid century design and a keen appreciation for bold choices resulted in a warm and daring family home that is as practical as it is beautiful. An unused space under the stairs was transformed into a modern fireplace with a seating look set off by leather chairs that the client swears are the most comfortable chairs in the world! As their interior designer, I was constantly impressed with their willingness to embrace “out of the box” suggestions like over scaled art and custom designed rugs in wild patterns. We made use of their existing antiques and pared them with funky modern furniture to create an eclectic mix that has been a big hit with the large family.
