Before & After: Vaucluse Residence
This stunning family home in Vaucluse needed a few updates to give it a fresher, more modern look and to better reflect the owner’s personal style. We’re still in the process of finishing off some of the rooms, but we thought we’d unveil some of the latest changes. Kitchen: The large kitchen was already quite functional, so all that was required was a bit of a revamp. The Design Hunter team had the cabinets resprayed in Dulux Vivid White and added new drawer handles. A fresh coat of Dulux Vivid White was also applied to the walls and ceiling throughout the home, the overhead lighting was updated and vintage Vietnamese fish traps were hung as pendant lights. The look was completed by updating the charcoal paint on the rear wall to Porter’s Paint Thoroughbred and adding a set of beautiful Seville bar stools. Foyer: The floor boards were in great condition, but the yellow tone of the timber looked dated. To freshen it up, the floors throughout were sanded back and refinished in a more muted, custom tone from Porter’s Paints. Interiors Consultant, Stephanie Waterman, sourced a new rug, pendant light, table and indoor plants to complete the space and complement some of the owner’s existing furniture and artworks. Study: Previously used as a storage and entertainment area, the owner wanted to turn this into a functional study space with a desk and overhead storage that related well to the rest of the home and reflected her eclectic taste. The open shelves now display books and treasures and the custom pin-board is a stylish way to incorporate the owner’s favourite green and blue tones.
