Art of the mat­ter 18

Australian House & Garden - - TOP 50 ROOMS -

The own­ers of this Syd­ney home are keen art col­lec­tors so it’s no sur­prise to dis­cover that a prized paint­ing, Around The World by re­spected artist Ian Smith, was the start­ing point for this liv­ing area’s scheme. In­te­rior de­signer Ade­laide Bragg took the room back to ba­sics, re­mov­ing the striped wall­pa­per and re­paint­ing the walls gallery white to make the most of the room’s nat­u­ral light and show the en­er­getic botan­i­cal themed art­work to best ef­fect. Re­tain­ing key fur­ni­ture, Ade­laide brought the room to life with soft fur­nish­ings and ac­cent pieces in a pal­ette of warm pinks and muted reds picked out from the paint­ing, which hangs to the right of the mir­ror.
