Perched high atop the hills in Dover Heights this magnificent Sydney home is a fine example of the latest trends in interior design, from eclectic retro influences to the melding of natural stone, wood and glass, this home is truly something to behold.
Here are some of the interior highlights:
Marbleous trends:Marbles use in design and architecture can be traced back to early Egyptian and Mesopotamian cultures. Its natural beauty has clearly stood the test of time. This home utilises the latest New York Marble to create a feature island in the kitchen as well as a feature stone fireplace. The effect is stunning.
Natural stained/ aged wood: With the advent of the “great room” concept that unites the kitchen and family rooms into one space, it has become very trendy to see hard wood throughout. Reclaimed wood from older homes or even wood that is stained to appear reclaimed is the flooring du jour. It can be compared to the old jeans trend…This particular home utlises that natural aged look to the hard wood.
Retro finishes: There is no doubt the retro trend is back and in a big way! Whilst the style has not come back in the exact materials colours and execution of the seventies, the influence is certainly there. This home makes use of the trend by the use of subtle furnishings throughout, take the coffee table in the lounge or the side lamps hanging above the bedside tables. This is a perfect example of how to incorporate the trend in a sophisticated and unobtrusive manner.
