Our Sydney client purchased this holiday cottage on the picturesque slopes of Sausalito. Our brief was to arrive two weeks ahead of our client in order to furnish the entire house, finishing to a level so that our client could walk in and feel at home. We specified, purchased, arranged and styled all that was required from large items of furniture down to plates, cutlery and linen. We also engaged trades to lay new carpet, paint throughout, plant the garden, furnish three decks and coordinate custom drapery throughout. Our final layer was accomplished on a second sourcing and styling trip to add a layer of books, art, objects and drapery.
The inspiration was 70s California when colour was celebrated and the feeling was relaxed. Furniture, carpets and art were sourced from vintage stores, auction houses and antique stores over a hectic, highly strategic fortnight to produce this result. The view over to San Francisco City can be soaked in from many of the cottages rooms.
