This young family home is a terrace house nestled in the back streets of Paddington. The project brief was to reinterpret the interior layouts of an approved DA renovation for the young family. The home was a major renovation with the The Designory providing design and documentation consultancy to the clients and completing all of the interior design components of the project as well as assisting with the building project management. The concept complimented the traditional features of the home, pairing this with crisp, modern sensibilities. Keeping the overall palette simple has allowed the client’s love of colour to be injected throughout the decorating elements. With functionality, storage and space being key for the small house, clever design elements and custom joinery were used throughout. With the final decorating elements adding touches of colour in a sophisticated yet luxe palette, this home is now filled with light and is perfect for easy family living and entertaining.

It’s an oft-heard design objective among folks building or renovating a home these days: “We want to bring the outdoors in!” Indeed, visually or spatially connecting the interior of a home with its surroundings is a great way to make spaces feel larger, improve daylight levels and, best of all, embrace Nature. Most of us enjoy being outside, and when we get a sense of that while inside it has a profoundly positive effect on the experience of being at home.
This remodel of a midcentury home by Garret Cord Werner Architects & Interior Designers is an embrace of nostalgic ‘50s architecture and incorporation of elegant interiors. Adding a touch of Art Deco French inspiration, the result is an eclectic vintage blend that provides an elevated yet light-hearted impression. Photography by Andrew Giammarco.
Stone Design indoor wall decoration panels are made of high quality and durable gypsum. Stone Design is durable, easy to clean, and does not discolor. The subtle variation in color and shape gives your indoor wall that real stone-look. The light weight panels are easy to install with either a regular thin set mortar (tile adhesive), a molding construction adhesive or a drywall adhesive. The right installation is also based on the subsurface conditions. After treatment with a transparent plaster sealer, the surface is even more easy to keep clean.
