Different supplies within the total palette equally replicate the will to open up the house, from a hand-painted predominant bed room ceiling (‘a waterscape of lilies and pond ripples [that] increase the room’s depth, inverting the water views past the balcony,’ as Yasmine describes the work by Artistic End), smoked bronze, and golden silk textiles.
A number of furnishings items (no beige allowed!) immediately reference the couple’s present artwork assortment, such because the candy-striped ‘seashore ball’ lights levitating above the eating desk that tie in with the Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri portray behind them.
