Interior designer Daniel Boddam blew a new wind through this beautiful eighties home in Sydney. Lindfield House was given a totally new look that reflects a calm, refined atmosphere and represents the personalities of the owners.
Daniel Boddam is an interior designer as well as an architect and furniture designer. This made him the ideal man to completely refurbish this house. Together with Studio CD he gave the house a new look. The owners wanted a modern interior with a mid-century twist for Lindfield House. With a beautiful and sober selection of furniture, including some designed by Boddam himself, and fine textures and colours, the designers together created a calm, timeless and refined interior in which the personalities of the inhabitants are celebrated. The shape and elements of the existing house were incorporated into the design and different styles were mixed. The beautiful, large stained rosewood door at the entrance immediately sets the tone for the rest of the interior. The floor on the ground floor is made of oak and forms the basis for the refined and calm colour palette. All the doors inside have been raised and replaced by glass doors with a black steel frame. This gives a more modern look and provides more natural light. The interior is generally simple and sober, but still makes a strong impression by the beautiful furniture and here and there a surprising colour or decorative element. The living space is enveloped in beige and grey tones. Here, we find a piece by Boddam himself, namely the Kelly Chair with underneath it the 'Agra' carpet by Armadillo & Co in the colour 'Pearl'.
De brief was: ‘Modern with a mid-century twist’
The special table in the dining room is also made by Boddam. The 'Vilda 3' chairs by Great Dane Furniture perfectly match the unique table legs with terracotta colours. These shades are beautifully complemented by a golden pendant which creates a warm whole. The kitchen contrasts with this colourful space. Marble and dark wood are used here. Yet the atmosphere remains airy because the floor is so light and the bar stools break through the palette. There is a second sitting area that is elevated and separated from the other living room with a sliding door. The natural colours that reign throughout the house are also reflected in the chosen pieces of decoration, including many ceramics objects by Spence & Lyda. At the top of the stairs leading to the first floor hangs the impressive 'Christopher Boots Prometheus II' lustre of Est Living. Further on in the bedroom there is a grey colour that is beautifully complemented by green/blue and brass details. The different textures of the wallpaper, carpet and special velvet headboard give a stylish and cosy effect.
The whole house feels elegant and sober, yet cosy and warm. A true statement of timeless design.
