Home' Scoop Homes and Art : Insite 23 Summer 2009 Contents That interior designer Judith Barrett-
Lennard has a tasteful, charismatic
home comes as no surprise.
What does surprise is how
effectively she pulls together two design
extremes: elegant and understated on one
hand, eccentric and bold on the other.
It's this very dynamic that gives
her Shenton Park home an intriguing
disposition, inviting each visitor to closely
inspect the finer details.
Her collection of fabrics, antiques, art
and furniture pieces have accumulated
over 25 years of work and travel, the two
opportunely combining in the colourful
world of interior design.
When Judith moved into the modest
135sqm house two years back, she gave
herself just three months to gut out the
existing interiors and make them her own.
"It was a complete redesign -- both
structurally and aesthetically," she says.
" e room layouts changed, a fireplace was
put in, more windows were added for light.
Basically the only thing I left was the roof
and exterior walls."
She then started on the wall colours,
choosing a subtle palette of citrus whites and
creams to unify the home.
WHERE THE HEART IS: (Left) A mix/match of arts, antiquities
and fabrics create warmth and intrigue in the formal lounge;
(right) the light and airy feel of the activities room is made
possible thanks to the terrace openings; (bottom) a mounted
bull's head unifies the design nuances through the activities room.
