This beautiful family home in Sydney was designed earlier this year by Claire Driscoll of Studio CD Design and is filled with art, colour and the finest decoration and details. This project was very appropriately called 'Art House'.
The large house was built in 1900 and has a traditional structure. Claire transformed it into a contemporary theatrical home that plays with old and new. "We were lucky that our client had complete confidence in us from the very first design, which meant that we could push the boundaries of creativity," says the designer. And those boundaries were definitely pushed. There seems to be a lot going on when you look inside for the first time. Patterns, works of art, different textures and colours everywhere, a mix of traditional and modern. In addition to the art, the specially made and chosen furniture also plays a major role in the whole. They create a playful but sophisticated atmosphere. The many works of art vary greatly in style: Surrealism, photography, abstract, digital media, and so on. Each piece comes into its own in the room where it is placed.
“We pushed the boundaries of creativity”
Despite the many paintings and art and decoration objects, the house still exudes a kind of calm and serene atmosphere with soft colours such as purple, pink and grey. Everything is perfectly balanced and forms a beautiful whole. You really go on a visual journey in this house.
