“With this project, we wanted to create a classic contemporary aesthetic with an eclectic mix of materials and finishes,” Sarah explains. “We created a layered and rich interior in both the interior design and decoration.”

By lightening the walls, darkening the timber floors and adding incredible feature pendants throughout, the Federation property has been given a new lease of life, and is now a stunning, contemporary and extremely liveable family home.

Nikki adds that it was important to work with the classic style of the Federation home, but with a modern twist: “We used traditional timber colours in the joinery, and neutral tones in the stone and tiles, but jazzed it up with unusual handle details, and interesting feature lights,” she says.

It was important to the clients that the renovated home be suitable for a family with teenage children. Although they wanted a practical home, with space for the kids to feel comfortable, they didn’t want it to feel too precious.

“It was important that we designed spaces that the different family members could escape to and areas that were more ‘adult’ friendly, like the front sitting room/guest room,” Sarah says.

To create a more liveable, functional family home, the basement was converted into a light, bright living room and games area.

“I really loved the result of the lower-ground floor conversion,” Nikki says. “It’s generous in space and light, and increased the usable space in the house by a third.”

Sarah adds: “I loved the bespoke silk and wool vibrant rug that we purpose designed for this room. It added a pop of colour and lustre to a mostly neutral and casual material palette.

“The whole family love using this space. I feel like this room will serve the family and friends for many years to come!”
