There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that each and every room appearing on the pages of SA Home Owner has a range of show-stopping features. There are, however, the few that stand out from the crowd. From a sophisticated bedroom fit for a corporate executive to a sumptuous lounge with an abundance of bright colour, here is a selection of our favourites from April…

Sumptuous sophistication

Interior designer Bianca Suttner, used smouldering shades of white, charcoal and grey throughout the home. The neutral palette is offset by designated pieces in Turmeric, such as the comfortable chair and footrest in the main bedroom, which stand discretely away from the focus furniture pieces, such as the bed, dressed in white with dark and charcoal pillows.

Coastal cool

Specialising in commercial and residential design, JSD Interiors was brought in to oversee, source and implement all aspects of the interior decor and design. The major built-in components, such as the kitchen, bathroom vanities and bar, were designed by JSD to reinforce the “upcycled” theme, which runs throughout the home.

Hannah Interiors was approached to conceptualise a design that reflects the owners’ modern lifestyle, with a minimalist edge. Working to a palette of neutrals, the company employed a mix of natural and contemporary materials to create an interior that is warm and inviting, while maintaining a sophisticated appeal.

Bold design

Interior designer Di Morris made sure to keep the six en-suite bedrooms, open-plan living space and home cinema of this bright, bold and contemporary holiday home, which was meant to accommodate three generations of the family equally, uncluttered yet comfortable. Generous pops of primary colour were incorporated to keep things fun and interesting.

A seaside aesthetic

Offering a complete interior design service, Anien Bell Interiors was commissioned to supply all of the interior furniture and curtaining for this home. Envisaging an elegant, classic beach house that would suit the whole family, the home owner opted for linen and shades of blue to incorporate the seaside aesthetic. A central painting of Tellaro, a small fishing village in Italy, brings brightness to the neutral palette.
