Located in Bellevue Hill, this very fancy new home accentuates stunning views across Sydney city skyline, with equally glam interiors by Alexandra Donohoe Church, founder and managing director of Decus Interiors.
Decus Interiors were brought onto to design the project’s finishes, joinery, lighting and furniture scheme to complement the house’s architecture by Luigi Rosselli Architects.
The brief was to design a classic yet contemporary home to accommodate a family of six. ‘There is a European inflexion in the language of the architecture. Our response was to mix timeless pieces with fun personality pieces throughout, building depth through layering in the finishes, joinery and furnishings,’ says Alexandra.
Furnishings in the living space are light, simple and translucent as not to disrupt the view – a scheme Alexandra describes as ‘easy, breezy Covergirl.’ The lighting scheme is similarly minimal, except for key, dramatic pieces such as the five-metre drop pendant by Lindsey Adelman in the stairwell. ‘Other choices were intentionally made to be quiet, to allow other aspects of the rooms to talk,’ says Alexandra.
While the living scheme contains mostly neutral tones, the bedrooms and bathrooms inject more personality into stylish home, introducing tones of blue, green, mustard, and pink as well as textured tiles and wallpaper accents.
It’s hard to look past the splendour of the indoor-outdoor main living area, but the bathrooms definitely come close as a favourite room in the house! Standout spaces are the stone powder room, which Alexandra labels an ‘explosion of colour and visual layers’, and the bathroom shower window that frames incredible water views. A true Sydney stunner!
