1885 House

With a fine heritage building such as this 1885 sandstone home, designing and decorating a 21st century iteration is a high-wire act. Respect for the elegance of the architecture was key, as we aimed for the sweet spot between classic and contemporary. 1885 House is undeniably grand, however for this family of five, it needed to feel relaxed, comfortable, and playful with a wow factor.
