An exuberant pied-à-terre

Posted on Fri, 20 May 2016 by midcenturyjo

The makeover of this inner city Sydney pied-à-terre saw a nondescript apartment become a celebration of personality and charm. Too often inner city living is thought of in terms of slick finishes and sharp lines, hip and hard. Not here. It’s all about colour, pattern, a stunning harbour view and a whole lot of fun. Potts Point pied-à-terre by interior designers Arent & Pyke.

I love how colorful it is! Not crazy about the forest wallpaper–those things were popular in the '70s, and I saw too many of them hanging on in the '80s and '90s.

Melanie says:

Charming without being the least bit precious. Taste of France: I had the same reaction you had, but when I took a closer look I realized it forest wall-paper–Its a painting. I am sure if you are in the room there is no confusion.

Ruth says:

Love the built in desk and sliding cabinet door to hide messy office stuff.

Peggy says:

Really interesting mix of pattern.

The uneven seat height bugs me in the living area. Very artful way they hung those pictures in relation with the chair and ottoman.

Christine says:

Does anyone know who designed the white chair (chaise longue)?

KiM says:

@Christine it's an Eames La Chaise lounge chair.
