An original 1940’s timber framed house in North Ryde was renovated into a modern light filled cottage with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, laundry, open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room. A garden studio was added at the rear and connected to the paved patio by a timber deck.
All four bedrooms were relocated to the front of the house; the kitchen, laundry and living spaces to the rear. These entertaining spaces are orientated with views onto the open and sunny back garden thereby capitalising on space and light. Timber floor boards were painted with Porters Floor Paint to create a continuous flowing look through out the cottage. The furnishings and fittings with their textures and colours were chosen to compliment the owners’ eclectic collection of artifacts and art.
Layering of bedding and cushions with contrasting colours but organic patterns help add visual texture and softens the bright master bedroom.
