London based designer James Thurstan Waterworth of Thurstan creates unique, rather eclectic spaces whilst in keeping with the period of the architecture. Whether it be ornate and traditional, modern loft or a 17th century masseria in Puglia, each space is breathtaking.

“This stunning home was tired and unloved and required a major refresh to enliven it for holiday guests. The interior of the house needed to complement the magnificence of the view.”

Don’t fight it, enhance it. Josie Simpson of Altus Design Studio loves colour, texture and pattern. In this Blue Mountains house (to the west of Sydney) her approach has been a joyful play of these design elements that don’t detract from the “elephant outside the room” but rather enhances the experience inside.
