Collector House

Posted on Tue, 9 Feb 2021 by midcenturyjo

“The Collector House feels wonderfully relaxed. Sunlight streams in from the central skylight and fills the rooms. The view of the harbour, framed by jacaranda and eucalypts, and the ferries passing by all contribute to the overall sense of calm. It’s a barefoot house – warm and grounded, with space for loved ones to gather.”

There are touches of humour and art, honest materials and a sense of the Aussie vernacular. There are private spaces and places to come together. And then there’s the view. Collector House by Sydney-based interior designers Arent & Pyke.

A rustic modern ranch house

The designer calls it a rustic modern ranch house. I call it a stylish, well-considered series of rooms that move from light to shadow and back again. The overall effect is intimate, cocooning and lovely. California Modern Farmhouse by Sarah Solis Design Studio.

The little details

“In response to the brief from a client seeking a family home that would reflect their love of originality, quality finishes and comfort, Phoebe has delivered a living environment where textures, colour and form come together in an unique interplay. Classically timeless pieces are complemented by bespoke contemporary art anD artefacts, without sacrificing comfort, liveability or durability.”

Sometimes it’s about the elegance, sometimes the restrained palette . Sometimes it’s about the luxury of the materials and sometimes it’s a little detail like the double welt trim on the fabric covered bedroom walls. Woollahra House byPhoebe Nicol Interior Architecture.

Garden House

Posted on Mon, 1 Feb 2021 by midcenturyjo

“Natural materials, bright light-filled spaces and an openness to the great outdoors will always be a beloved signature of Australian interiors. When conceiving the interiors of the Garden House, we were drawn to the concepts of timelessness, tranquillity and escape. Garden House embodies the client’s combined passions for art, gardens, and colour.”

With the colours and textures of a beloved garden as the starting point interior designers, Arent & Pyke have created a luxurious yet almost monastic set of rooms in this extension that connects the existing house to the garden. Warm and rich yet calm.

It’s a Hollywood Hills Ashram with tray service from Chateau Marmont and it looks fabulous. What else do you expect from design doyenne Jane Hallworth?
