Australian House & Garden - - CONTENTS -

For in­te­rior de­signer and mum of twins Juli­ette Arent, liv­ing close to the beach in Syd­ney means tow­els and swim­mers are added to the wash­ing load in the sum­mer months, while a dryer is part of the mix dur­ing the cooler win­ter months.

“My laun­dry is con­cealed in the kitchen zone, so it’s a high-traf­fic area. My hus­band is a won­der­ful cook, so he is the chef in our home while I take care of the laun­dry – so we get to spend qual­ity time to­gether!

“How­ever, my ideal laun­dry would be slightly more gen­er­ous in size, have bench space for sort­ing clothes and a linen cup­board. Nat­u­ral light is al­ways paramount so a win­dow and a door lead­ing out­side to the gar­den are also a must.”

“The theme for my ideal laun­dry is mod­ern and ur­ban, which, at Arent&Pyke, we de­fine as a de­sign that pro­vides func­tion and flex­i­bil­ity for ev­ery­day liv­ing, typ­i­cally with some lim­i­ta­tions on space.

“The slate wall colour shown here is im­bued with sooth­ing green tones to sig­nify an oa­sis and to con­nect back to the green­ery out­side. Used as a high­light, the pati­nated bronzed brass fin­ish on trims and fix­tures through­out adds a layer of be­spoke de­tail­ing to the join­ery. The warm tim­ber floor­ing soft­ens the laun­dry space, cre­at­ing a more re­laxed and invit­ing en­vi­ron­ment for this ev­ery­day rit­ual.”
