On the ceiling

Don't let the white on white with gold accents fool you as you move through this Sydney house. A splash of colour on the front door, dramatic wallpaper in another room, cleverly patterned tile in the powder room give you just a hint of the riot of colour and wallpaper that awaits when you climb the stairs or venture out to the pool cabana. Interior designer Greg Natale takes it to another level with his bold pattern clashes, papered ceilings and bathroom tiling. A glam house, a wham house! Love the striped wallpaper down by the pool? Did the purple chevron paper in the Adore magazine post (the room complete with David Bowie and tufting) tickle your fancy? Both wallpapers are from Greg's new stripe range for Porter's Paints. Hollywood Regency meets retro meets rock star glam. Mix it up anyway you want.

The Greg Natale Collection is available from Porter's Paints.

Its so fabulous and wonderfully Mad Men.

I couldn't live there though - I'd just want to own it and look at it - maybe I need a doll's house like this.

Too Much gold for me.

Love all the white, the orange doors and the yellow table. The rest is too much for me, especially the gold.

It's phenomenal, but no one actually lives there, do they?

While I don't personally love the overall color palette - I do think that it is very fresh. Love the attention given to the ceilings, and the use of pattern and texture are inspirational for me.

Seriously in love with this house! Everything from the bold front door to the patterns on the interior rooms!!!

Me encanta esta casa tan llena de luz. La blancura de sus estancias es impresionante y la decoraciĆ³n no desmerece nada.

Love the peacock wallpaper in the bedroom and that view of the pool and back patio! Ah! So good.

You can really get away with that over-the-top glamour in Sydney, can't you?

no no no...
too much americano, too much glamour.
the bisazza gold mosaic everywhere, the round carpet,the wallpapers...

the orange door the worst thing i the house.
the brass bannister the best.
and the emu garden iron chairs by patricia urquiola.

I'm becoming a fiend for loads of white with touches of gold -- but not stuffy or baroque; when it's done in a modern way, like this. I want to get away from dark walls, wabi-sabi, sad industrial spaces, "ironic" art and, by the way, enough with the black nail polish ... Flood me with lightness, whiteness, fresh colors and some precious AU.
