On the ceiling

Posted on Fri, 8 Feb 2013 by midcenturyjo

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.

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

Melanie says:

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?

At first I was like – mmmeeeeeh, too much white.

gaia says:

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.

One of the nicest homes I've ever seen. Ever.

KiM says:

@Liz – it's mosaic tile not wallpaper.
