Pride Month takes place every year in June in celebration of the LGBT+ community. With this year’s global festivities in full swing, we’re spotlighting our loudest and proudest projects in support of the most colourful movement in the calendar.
Our Seaview Crescent project is an ode to colour. Beyond its iconic P&O style exterior, you’ll find every hue imaginable, from powder blues to sunshine yellows to vibrant reds.
Our client's lifetime desire to travel to Morocco set up the framework for the colour and fabric selections, and his impressive and much-adored art collection also inspired the interior palette. Perched right on top of the cliffs above the sea, with a view to rival all others, the changing light transforms each colour choice and the effect is nothing short of magical.
Our Wharf Crescent client approached us dreaming of a convenient city pad to impress. We began with a largely black and white shell, introducing copper drapery to soften the space and capture the mood of the dazzling, panoramic city views whilst also reflecting the daily sunsets.
In the breakfast nook, we selected vibrant orange shades to imbue the space with a sense of informality, and contrast with the deeper, burnt shades of the more formal living areas. The effect is playful, invigorating and welcoming – the ideal backdrop for the first meal of the day.
The brief for Onslow Avenue was to design a suitable Sydney pied-à-terre that incorporated our clients’ classic aesthetic, had bold colour and whimsy but was intrinsically 'Sydney', as well as being suitable for their visiting young grandchildren.
Our clients were very involved in the project and enthused over every step to go brighter and bolder. This sunshine-hued bedroom is a studio colour favourite and a true reflection of our clients’ bright personality.
In the otherwise soft and neutral palette of Duntroon Avenue’s master bathroom, this green feature shower wall in fish scale tiles produce an unexpectedly playful feature in the adjoining ensuite, whilst also providing a pillar of privacy for the master bath inhabitant. The colour of renewal, nature and energy, green was a considered choice to use in a place where our clients begin their day.
To counteract Raglan Street’s sprawling, open-plan ground floor, which might easily have felt cold, we introduced moments of bold colour to create an intimate sense of scale, such as the deep royal blue of the kitchen’s dining nook.
Despite this occasional vibrancy, the home maintains a sense of calm and elegance owing to its largely monochrome palette that ties seamlessly into the architecture of the rest of the home, making for an easy backdrop to everyday life.
Wentworth Street was all about creating a home fit for a modern, growing family. We introduced touches of colour and luxury that are undoubtedly impressive but given this is a home for a young family, we incorporated nothing too serious or precious.
Every design element is practical and has a purpose, like the hard-wearing indigo rug we installed in the living room which provides a point of playful interest while remaining practical to little hands and feet.
Birchgrove House begun its life as a new-build – we effectively started with a blank canvas that consisted of stark white walls and miles of grey marble flooring. We set out to soften the cold, cavernous spaces by adding vibrant accents in jewel tones. We injected colour sparingly but with great intensity for impact, creating a true sense of home.
A vibrant art piece by Antonia Mrljak in rich plums and violets provides much-needed warmth to the living space.
