Set in stone

A sandstone cottage has had new life breathed into it by Sydney based interior designers Morris Selvatico. (Time to confess that it is actually the home of one of the directors Amy Morris.) Exposed stone walls and quirky openings reveal the building age but black floors and modern but sympathetic finishes to the kitchen and bathroom bring the house into the 21st century.

The definition of rustic

This right here is my dream summer home. A sprawling stone mansion in the middle of the countryside. What a magnificent canvas - oh the fun I would have decorating this!

A series of intimate rooms not large open plan areas ensures the home, though large, is on a more human scale. New yet old, relaxed yet sophisticated. By Oz Architects with interiors by David Michael Miller Associates.
