Over the last few weeks I’ve been writing about connecting the interiors with the outside through the use of colour and material palette. There’s so much inspiration outside and if a beautiful natural landscape is in eye-shot then treat it like it’s in your own backyard.

I’m currently working on an interior design concept for a combined living / dining room and with floor to ceiling glazing, this room looks out on abundant native gardens, with the Grevillea putting on quite a show! So I’m thinking…
For the Living Room – warm timber french oak flooring with a muted stain, not too warm as I’ve got the rosey colour accents I’m borrowing from the blooms, and steel grey linen upholstery. A nice combination of warm and cool tones and textures.
For the Dining Room – as we near the full height windows we need a strong connection so I’ll transition to grey stone tiles with a bit of sheen for contrast. The dark stone will downplay the floor and make the outside pop! A honey toned floor rug and dining chair upholstery will connect the two spaces.
I now have a complete design that extends from the centre of the home to the outside gardens, not only making these spaces feel even larger but also adds a feeling of serenity.
