‘House & Garden’ Top 50 rooms 2008

The Traralgon project involved the refurbishment of an existing early 90’s house, with a generous layout and beautiful aspect on to a feature pool and garden designed by Paul Bangay. However, the house was steeped in the 90’s style – a very overpowering bird’s eye veneer had been used extensively throughout. The paint colours were originally soft and gold based so a more graphic palette of crisp white, taupe and charcoal was employed to bring some impact to the space. A clever mix of contemporary furniture and dramatic modern art add aesthetic punch to the interior. By also renovating the kitchen and built-in joinery, as well as replacing the carpet, the property has been given a new lease on life.
