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