Living | Polychrome House by Amber Road
- Photographer Prue Ruscoe
It’s an absolute given from the outset; the Polychrome House has an infectious sense of fun and adventure designed by Amber Road. The formerly defective sixties brick home in Cronulla, Sydney, was no fit for the happy-go-lucky owner. And who better than Amber Road to create the exact embodiment of joyful living? Described by the studio as ‘an energetic design playground’, this now extended indoor-outdoor retreat by Amber Road has blossomed into a successful union of art, architecture, play and comfort.
Colour was integral to making the Polychrome House a happy and harmonious place to be. Amber Road explained this as a suite of ‘quiet colours’ that act as a base palette in harmony with the existing face brick tones, that are then altered by a secondary palette of electric colours. “Bright primary colours which were layered throughout the interior became the heartbeat of the ‘joyful’ experience we were all committed to creating,” Yasmine said.
