WIN A $1000 MAKEOVER

Su­per Stylist Fiona works her magic on a fam­ily room in St Ives, Syd­ney, to give it fresh but clas­sic ap­peal.

Homes+ (Australia) - - BEST BUYS -

THE FAM­ILY ROOM of this home in Syd­ney’s leafy up­per north shore is large and has a lovely out­look over the pool and gar­den but owner Emmy was keen to lighten and freshen the space and give it per­son­al­ity. Her style is not dic­tated by trends and the fam­ily likes to live clut­ter-free, so Fiona chose a clas­sic and sim­ple look.

The ver­dict

The ex­ist­ing mo­du­lar lounge was al­ready in prime po­si­tion so it stayed put, but the rug was ro­tated to bet­ter suit the shape of the room. In­spi­ra­tion for dec­o­rat­ing came from a large nau­ti­cal-themed art­work: Fiona added a fold­able but­ler’s tray in coastal white as a side ta­ble, in­tro­duced task and am­bi­ent light­ing with the floor lamp and side lamp, also in white, and found an ar­ray of cush­ions in nat­u­ral and aqua tones. A new round cof­fee ta­ble picks up the tim­ber of the floor and win­dow trim, while pot­ted plants and flower add liv­ing green.
