Soft touch

Australian House & Garden - - Houses -

Through­out the home, linen is used to soften hard sur­faces. Beau­ti­ful Bel­gian linen cov­ers on the so­fas are re­mov­able for easy clean­ing and the cur­tains in the main bed­room fil­ter the harsh WA sun. The linen-cov­ered din­ing chairs are a laid­back yet so­phis­ti­cated con­trast to the rus­tic din­ing table, and Michelle has draped linen throws in dif­fer­ent ar­eas of the home for com­fort and an ex­tra layer of un­struc­tured soft­ness.

‘We wanted a sim­ple home, one with an in­door-out­door feel and no wasted space.’ Michelle Wil­liams

MAIN BED­ROOM A fea­ture wall of weath­ered above and left hard­wood pan­elling pro­vides a colour and tex­tu­ral con­trast to the room’s pre­dom­i­nantly white scheme. The side chair be­longed to Michelle’s grand­mother. Bed­li­nen, In the Sac. Bed­head, pen­dant lights, side table, stool, throw and cush­ion on bed, all Blu­peter Home­store.
