When Kerrie-Ann Jones and her spouse acquired this dwelling on a subdivided block in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire, it nonetheless retained many of its initial retro functions.
‘It was in first condition, entire with silver disco wallpaper for the dining area, yellow and kitchen, and a cobalt blue rest room,’ states Kerrie-Ann.
As magnificent as the retro facts ended up, most of the inside was rotten with water harm, that means Kerrie-Ann experienced to strip nearly all of it back again to principles. This was the very first undertaking Kerrie-Ann experienced ever tried as an operator-builder, and she jumped in head 1st – with aid from her dad and carpenter Nick David of ND Developed.
Initially up, Kerrie-Ann made some significant improvements to the structure (swapping a space or two there, growing the primary bedroom), and she also prioritised restoring the exterior facade.
Upcoming, it was time to devise a contemporary new substance palette and styling plan, from the floor up.
‘I designed the interiors with bespoke information, like curved edges for the kitchen island, rangehood and hearth,’ Kerrie-Ann describes.
‘It’s texture-prosperous with supplies these as the walnut veneer in the kitchen and the use of many stone products in the kitchen, living space fireplace and bathroom’ she elaobrates. ‘I like to layer textures yet stay in just a warm neutral color palette. I’ve curated our residence to be layered, with a blend of classic and up to date home furnishings and artwork gathered around the several years.’
The culmination of this careful, textured layering is the palladiana-design mosaic floor in the lavatory, designed from significant marble offcuts.
‘I experienced the notion about three years ago. I have noticed it finished on a little scale but rarely utilizing huge parts,’ suggests Kerrie-Ann. ‘It took 6 months to locate a tiler and stoner polisher who was prepared to do the occupation!’
But so totally worthy of it! We’d go so much as to say it is the pièce de résistance in this dreamy spouse and children pad!
