This was the second time the interior designer had been called on to work on this home. The first time, twenty years ago, was to update a 1980s interior that had been installed in the 1912 Edwardian home.

Now the owners are empty-nesters with grandchildren, and wanted the ground floor totally upgraded again to suit their new lifestyle.

Existing glossy marble floor tiles throughout were removed and replaced with beautiful custom, wide-board oak flooring, complete with underfloor ducted heating.

The under-utilised formal dining room has been transformed into a light modern dining space for family gatherings. Meanwhile, the family seating area has doubled in size, and now accommodates two new sofas and armchairs.

Solid bi-fold doors between the family and living rooms were replaced with a custom designed iron and glass wall.

And another iron and glass wall separates the entrance foyer from the living room, creating a more intimate formal space which can be viewed from several angles.

The kitchen was also refreshed with new surfaces, and a large skylight removed to enable three Falling Leaf pendants to be positioned above the island.

The TIDA judges noted how this second interior revamp has skilfully created a more contemporary style with cleaner lines, while maintaining the integrity of the home’s classic Edwardian architectural elements.
