- Interior Designer
Returning home to Sydney after a secondment abroad, out clients —a professional couple and their young children— were looking to create an outdoor space that could make the most of the weather they had missed in their absence.
An entertainer’s garden, the design should be dynamic and engaging, taking advantage of the property’s north facing aspect while framing, softening and enhancing the architecturally-designed dwelling.
The project is beautiful in its response to the architectural form where rather than simply providing a backdrop, the landscape is integrated with the property. But it also takes on a Palm Springs-like design philosophy, highlighting indoor / outdoor living and the application of simple, uncomplicated materials. It is sophisticated, vibrant and suited to a family of evolving tastes.
“Whispering of mid — century Cali cool, strappy palms in graceful poses flourish under the limelight in a garden of glossy greens.”
