The Nelson House called for a marriage between various design styles to create elegant, multi-functional rooms within a uniquely configured building. Designed by The Stylesmiths™ for a busy family with three children they required assistance to beautify a collection of spaces to suit their contrary aesthetic tastes, provide more room for entertaining and cater to storage needs.
The project included an interior redesign of the master bedroom, living room and dining space. Attention was paid to lighting selections, furniture, custom soft furnishings, wall finishes and clever space planning to strike a balance between functionality and decoration. With soaring ceiling heights in the open plan living spaces, scale and proportion were addressed to create more intimacy and warmth.
Beyond the living spaces we love the floating custom joinery in the master bedroom, which transforms it into another multipurpose zone; this room not only transformed into a rich, moody parents’ retreat but new built-in joinery offers additional functionality and flexibility through storage and a sophisticated work space when required.
The Herringbone Rug in the master bedroom was chosen to emulate chevron floors to give a Parisian vibe!
We carefully chose lighting and sumptuous fabrics that offer a rewarding textural hideaway from the demands of the day. The interior design in the open plan living spaces, offers further custom soft furnishings in a variety of colours and finishes that engage with the senses in a unique way. Nothing is ‘finished’ and the clients can add bits and pieces to the display as they wish as they family grows. The dark background allows the wall to hold a lot without ever feeling too heavy.
