The design approach in Sabine's own words:
"This project was so much fun, just a perfect combination of dream clients and an already bright and airy space.
My clients are renting this property, so we opted to invest in things that can be taken with you, like smaller pieces of art, custom made cushions, quality lamps and gorgeous accessories. It made sense to revive existing pieces with new upholstery and fabrics, as they were suiting the space, amazing quality and super comfy too.
On the larger wall we opted for light weight basket art, that does not leave any damage to the wall and adds lovely texture. The colour palette was taken straight from the beautiful Sydney beach on the client's doorstep, a careful mix of neutrals, fresh blues and navy and black to balance the existing dark wood dining table and sideboard. The aim was to create a fresh, light and unpretentious, yet elegant space, perfect for entertaining and in tune with the personalities of the people living in it."
This is a family home so Sabine chose hard wearing upholstery fabrics for the soft furnishings, making them the perfect place for a family to relax. The client loved her sofa and chairs and wanted to keep them, but the large floral was replaced with a soft grey blue fabric which makes these comfy oversize pieces less dominant.
Baskets hung as artwork create enormous visual impact.
Decorative objects, lamps, artwork and a luxurious rug add layer upon layer of gorgeous detail. The finished result is a contemporary space that is sophisticated and fresh, detailed but not fussy. Sabine's considered approach and eye for detail has transformed the space, it was gracious before, now it exudes a cohesive easy to live in elegance.
