ART INSTALLATION FOR TOOWONG QUEENSLANDER

I was recently engaged to assist the new owners of historic Craigsmount with their interior design and decoration. Built in 1886 in the leafy Brisbane suburb of Toowong, the house is listed on the Brisbane City Council Heritage register.

A young family live in the home and their original brief was to furnish and accessorise the home in a traditional way to work with the period architecture. However, I’ve been able to convince them that we should be less predictable, by creating a blend of old and new that still pays homage to the character of a Queenslander while showing a playful and adventurous side.

On Saturday, I got our hanging team to install a number of artworks. I’m also creating black and white photo gralleres around the home that showcase family memories.

The living room is anchored by a Persian rug. The James Stewart sofa is a contemporary version of a traditional Chesterfield that interprets the period architecture in a tasteful but playful way, while the marble coffee tables and luxury linen and velvet scatter cushions bring a touch of luxe to the scheme. The room is finished with a classic Hanover sofa from James Stewart and a Ruby Star monochromatic cabinet. Artworks are from Designer Boys.
