Beyond the post war clinker brick Art Deco facade of this home located in a picturesque heritage-laden suburb. Salon Eyre is home to a family that adores travel and art, the renovation of this 1920 clinker-brick house has given the family a place that reflects their colourful passion-filled lifestyle.
Eclectic items acquired over time are thoughtfully showcased throughout the home. Salon Eyre is a modern take on Art Deco design, filled with blended mix of keepsakes, art and contemporary furniture that are family friendly towards two teenage boys and a labradoodle.
The Stylesmiths™ brief was to create a home that tells one story through a multitude of assorted elements, ensuring each maintains its own point of difference. As such, individualism is the hero which is scattered throughout each space, creating a rich diverse mix of colours, shapes, materials, textures and eras which harmoniously work as one.
Entering the relaxed family room bathed in natural daylight, there is a nod to comfort and functionality of low maintenance materials that suit an organised and pet friendly household, living zones are made for catching up with family, playing music or entertaining guests. The subtle differences in textures, colours and shapes, are perfectly at home within an Art Deco context. The textured bobble weave upholstered lounge is complemented by a leather armchair oozing with character and anchored by a black and white handcrafted Dinosaur Design rug. Planters filled with indoor plants, add life and lushness to the interior spaces.
The original banquette window seat in the formal lounge has been meticulously brought back to life topped with a tan leather cushion. Other furniture takes its cue from this window seat, facing round coffee tables of glass and terrazzo.
The formal sitting-room is laced with vintage finds that have been acquired during the family’s adventures now take pride of place, including the Gobi mirror from London and framed poster found in New York. The undoubtable hero, however, is the custom made Aceto rug, designed by Hare + Klein, secured through Designer rugs. Six months in the making with a splash of every colour found neighbouring it, the piece now makes the owners smile every time they walk by as it sits in their front room.
A first-time experience working with a design studio, the family says they will never try tackle interior design on their own. Knowing what you want to achieve is nothing, without a helping hand to lead you along the journey.
