ARENT & PYKE, SYD­NEY

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Design & Architecture -

When Juli­ette Arent and Sarah-jane Pyke went into busi­ness to­gether 11 years ago, they made a con­scious de­ci­sion to move away from the min­i­mal in­te­ri­ors that were so preva­lent at the time. In­stead, says Pyke, ‘we wanted to cre­ate homes with warmth and spirit, full of per­sonal ob­jects, art and books, so that peo­ple are more con­nected to the spa­ces they live in’. Nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, con­sid­ered colours (they of­ten favour dark, co­coon­ing bed­rooms) and lay­ered light­ing are all sig­na­ture threads that run through their work. They also pride them­selves on al­ways us­ing be­spoke de­signs, whether it’s cus­tom cast-iron and brass han­dles by lo­cal de­signer Henry Wil­son or fur­ni­ture by Gary Galego. ar­ent­pyke.com
