STEP UP YOUR FLOOR GAME

Inside Out (Australia) - - Things We Love -

Floor­ing is the foun­da­tion of a home’s style, so chang­ing it up can make a big difff­fer­ence. “There were a few difff­fer­ent tim­bers in this house – yel­low-toned Cyprus pine down­stairs, or­angey tim­ber on the stairs and red­dish Jar­rah up­stairs – and it was all a bit dis­con­nected, so I laid Provin­cial Lane oak lam­i­nate floor­ing from Car­pet Court through­out the house my­self over a cou­ple of months,” says Dar­ren. “I usu­ally like to redo all the fur­ni­ture when I redo a house, but I think I’ll keep these chairs – they work per­fectly for beachy style,” he says of the white Wind­sor-style Thonet chairs with grey felted wool seat pads.

Through­out Dar­ren’s home, there are plenty of styling vi­gnettes show­cas­ing his re­fined re­laxed luxe style. This com­bi­na­tion of faux co­ral with a ham­mered metal bowl, both pieces from his Myer range, (op­po­site, left) is a great ex­am­ple. An art­work by Dorothy Na­pan­gardi (op­po­site, right) gives this kitchen nook a fo­cal point. Stools from Sounds Like Home and ‘Stol’ chairs from Thonet (this page) pro­vide clas­sic seat­ing op­tions while an over­sized rat­tan pen­dant light from Bisque In­te­ri­ors brings coastal ap­peal.
