Bellevue Hill House

Bellevue Hill House

In this spacious family home, the needs of the family members are catered to through a variety of comfort levels. From relaxed and casual pool-side recreation areas to intimate bedrooms and both formal and family dining areas, the home, while opulent, is unmistakably a family home. It was imperative that, while the furnishings, rugs, objects and bespoke elements be both independently and collectively exquisite, it should not read as overtly ‘designer’.

Generous rugs frame the lounge and dining areas, and furniture throughout the home features the combined merits of sculptural form and luxurious comfort. Creating a sense of place, a warm and softly calm material palette of stone and timber allowed decoration a more robust freedom in form, colour and textural presence. Bespoke cabinetry, such as the reframing of the fireplace, and decoration, including objects and art, define and soften the interior in a harmonious flow that visually connects the whole.
