EX­PERT Q&A

Your Home and Garden - - Reno -

In­te­rior de­signer Tomi Wil­liams from Indigo De­sign What was your brief for this pro­ject? To cre­ate a home that was re­laxed, wel­com­ing and a place where fam­ily and friends could con­gre­gate. Felic­ity and Si­mon were at­tracted to a num­ber of dif­fer­ent styles so I needed to bring all of them to­gether in a co­he­sive and unique way.

What was the big­gest chal­lenge dur­ing the pro­ject? Felic­ity and Si­mon were great clients who were look­ing to be chal­lenged in terms of colour and how it was used. Of course, this meant I was chal­lenged to use colour in dif­fer­ent ways to what I would typ­i­cally do. Plus I then needed to con­vince them that it would work! What part of the home are you most proud of? I ab­so­lutely love the big, oak-framed, slid­ing door in the liv­ing room, which has the book­shelf be­hind it. The door it­self is a lovely fea­ture and func­tional, too. While it closes off the art and crafts room, it en­ables that space to still feel con­nected to the main liv­ing area, which was cru­cial for the girls be­cause they are still so young.
