Find de­sign in­spi­ra­tion in a space that al­lows you to ex­hale and un­wind, writes Sarah Pick­ette.

Australian House & Garden - - ADVICE -

Lib­er­a­tion is the sen­sa­tion we all seek over sum­mer. Whether you find yours in a cor­ner of your own home or fur­ther afield, that elu­sive feel­ing of es­cape is truly sooth­ing. In over­haul­ing this Syd­ney boathouse, in­te­rior de­signer Sarah Dav­i­son has cre­ated a re­laxed sanc­tu­ary that feels cosy when the own­ers are en­joy­ing sun­set drinks by them­selves, but is gen­er­ous enough to house overnight guests. A queen-size bed, kitchen and bath­room fa­cil­i­ties have been tucked into the space. “The own­ers use the boathouse to un­plug from tech­nol­ogy and con­nect with na­ture and fam­ily,” says Sarah. “They say it’s where they have their best con­ver­sa­tions.” sarah­davi­son.com.au
