Going Native!

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.
