Harmonious transition

“A substantial renovation of an existing two-storey terrace house. Paying respect to the heritage of the building, all the while integrating a contemporary style of living; an harmonious transition from the traditional; enabling a sophisticated, yet relaxed, easy-going family lifestyle. Playfully embracing the tensions between the decorative and pared-back, a warm cosiness and a refreshing calm; the interiors are subtly feminine, textural, with organic tones and just a hint of glam.”

I think it’s something Australian designers do so well. The harmonious transition from old to new, a marriage of the historic and the contemporary, skilfully updating and refreshing a property ready to face its beautiful future. Norfolk House by Sydney-based SE DÉA.

Beautiful. Cool whites on the outside and warm whites and pinks on the inside. I will say in a teeny voice – the interior colours will date. But it is incredibly beautiful. x

Lorraine Frances says:

Those interiors are so relaxing. The classic yet modern look will hold its own for many years. to come. Peaceful and calming!
