You may recall our latest Est Style Hunter, Alexandra Donohoe from the current issue of Est Magazine – The Nordic Issue. Fabulously stylish in the home, and in life, Alexandra and her team of dedicated designers at Decus Interiors have just had one of their busiest years to date. Today we share with you their latest project on the sunny shores of Sydney’s Tamarama Beach.
Armed with a brief calling for a practical home with a ‘bare-foot vibe’, Donohoe and the Decus team set about transforming an apartment spanning half a floor and situated atop the awe inspiring clifftops along Sydney’s eastern suburb coastline.
Layering neutral toned, tactile materials consisting of a mix of handmade tiles, natural oak flooring, concrete pigmented flooring, and v-groove paneling, the Decus team accented the mostly monochromatic palette with installations of bold photography from MCM House and Leila Jeffreys.
Joe sofa from MCM House, Nemo lamp from Cult, Gervasoni stool from Anibou, Saarinen Tulip dining table and Knoll Spoleto dining chairs from DeDeCe, Lean Light Floor Lamp from Great Dane, Rug from Cadry’s.
Deltalight Wall Light from Inlite, Saarinen Tulip Dining Table and Knoll Spoleto Dining Chairs from DeDeCe, joinery 2Pak polyurethane in Vivid White, veneer finger pull detail in Oak Crown Cut Limed from George Fethers & Co and Nemo lamp from Cult.
