Warm wel­come

Australian House & Garden - - TOP 50 ROOMS -

30 In trans­form­ing this Can­berra fam­ily room from cold to co­coon­ing, the de­sign­ers from Jour­ney Home took their cues from the clients’ col­lec­tion of Pa­pua New Guinean arte­facts and the home’s 1960s ar­chi­tec­ture. The re­sult is an invit­ing, tac­tile space filled with nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als and mean­ing­ful ob­jects. Its stone-clad cen­tral fire­place brings warmth and wow fac­tor, while the rat­tan arm­chairs, large jute rug, over­sized tim­ber ta­ble, open-weave cur­tains and cush­ions cov­ered in vel­vet or em­broi­dery add lay­ers of tex­ture. “Now our clients can en­ter­tain with­out com­pro­mis­ing com­fort,” says prin­ci­pal de­signer Na­dine Neil­son.
