This project involved creating a design brief over several in home – consultations. Time was an important factor because my client had arrived in Brisbane without furniture. The project involved sourcing and design work for my clients living area, dining, master bedroom, entry way and pool area.
In the living space above, we sourced the sofa, ottoman and rug. The lovely occasional chairs, and side tables were my pieces that my client already owned.
The denim blue sofa fabric was chosen because it’s a fresh and modern way to layer the home using the colour blue. I also feel that it is one of those classic fabrics that weathers the seasons and fashions well. The 3 1/2 seater is a custom made sofa designed and manufactured in Melbourne. Comfort and height was one of the primary reason for choosing this lounge. It is an amazingly comfortable and supportive lounge that has been exceptionally crafted. We also needed it be a high – set sofa to work with the height of the high – set occasional chairs my client had recently purchased o/s. The rug is made from a beautiful mix of wool and silk. It is a lovely cool grey colour with tiny pops of warmth that tie the space in beautifully as far as colour palette’s go. We chose an oval ottoman for this space as it’s important to have a varied range of shapes within a space, this creates spatial balance and flow. We also chose to have the oval ottoman custom made locally here in Brisbane especially for this project. We wanted to add a very pure touch that will be a family heirloom for years to come. We chose a gold fabric to add a touch of warmth to this area, it’s important to have a good balance of warm and cool colours.
The artwork pictured is from a local Brisbane Artist, Kate Barry. Design assistance was also provided with the console pictured in this entry room.
Design assistance was provided with the mirror below, the aim was to help define the dining space further as well as add a touch of warmth and light. The beautiful dining table and chairs were my recent purchases of my client’s.
This outdoor mural below was also reworked to add a fresh, cooler colour – palette, that was more to my clients taste. The previous mural was firey and overbearing. Design assistance was also provided to via the plants and pots in order to complete the look of the landscaping.
Lastly this artwork pictured was another piece sourced from local Brisbane artist, Kate Barry. It looked magical from the first moment it was hung on the wall!
