Home' Scoop Homes and Art : Insite 24 Autumn 2010 Contents Opposite the curved wall in the living
room is a large, opaque window that allows a
gentle diffused light to enter the family
space. To maximise storage, Meaghan placed
three shelves across the window, which now
store the family's books. More storage is
found in gloss-white cabinets, which skirt
the length of the living room, offering
another visual connection across the two
different floor levels.
With the design sorted, Meaghan and
Yolande together turned to sourcing what
fittings were needed. While Yolande worked
alongside Meaghan to source the light
fittings, benchtops and tiles, plus
commission key pieces, Ivan also had a hand
in it. "It was a team effort," Yolande says.
e children's bedrooms were untouched
architecturally, yet Yolande has brought the
rooms up to date through a generous use of
colour and playful extras.
e master bedroom is the core of a 'parents'
wing', which in addition to a sleeping zone
includes a walk-in robe and ensuite. In its
previous life the bathroom was the dining
room, and the original wood-frame
windows are now a highlight of the space.
"We wanted a luxurious feeling in
this area," says Yolande. And they got it
-- decadent wallpaper, diffuse window
treatments and elegant furniture in the
bedroom, plus top-notch light fittings and
Spanish floor-to-ceiling tiles in the ensuite,
all create a look that is restful, beautiful
and stylish. In fact, that sums up the feel
of the entire home. I
