This residence, nestled on the Swan River in
Shelley, was built by Ross North Homes.
The new owners engaged the services and
expertise of YU Interior to style the home with
new furniture, window treatments, and soft
furnishings to make it their own. In the brief it was
important to incorporate artwork and artefacts
that the clients had collected from their years of
travel around the world, while keeping in with
a very classic yet contemporary style.
The existing colour palette of the home
was strongly dominated with brown and taupe
colour tones in which it was YU Interior’s task
to soften the look by bringing in elements of
colour and texture.
Initially YU Interior went through and painted
the entire home in Dulux Natural White. They
also installed floor-to-ceiling sheer curtains
throughout the home to add softness. These two
elements alone immediately freshened up the
overall feel of the space, creating a light-filled
inviting ambience. It was now the furniture,
artwork, rugs and accessories to be selected to
make the biggest transformation.
In the main living area, soft ‘duck egg’
blue was used as the accent colour, which
works wonderfully back with the existing
brown taupe tones and Emporador stone
benchtop in the kitchen.
Boyd Blue grass-weave wallpaper was used
in the large recesses giving the walls texture and
dimension. The bespoke dining chairs upholstered
in an Elliott Clarke fabric are a talking point,
and catch your eye as you walk up the solid
floating-timber staircase. The soft blue hues tie in
wonderfully with both the hand-picked rug from
The Rug Establishment and the clients’ existing
slipper chairs and Ken Done artwork.
For the lounge, YU Interior commissioned
Creation Design to create a stunning custom
made-to-measure modular sofa, to fit perfectly
in the space. The leather for the sofa was sourced
from Decor Design Centre in Northbridge.
All bedrooms were given an injection of
personality, with a selection of wallpapers ranging
from soft florals to the on-trend grass weaves.
Bespoke padded bedheads, coordinating bed linen
and cushions were all custom-designed by the
team at YU Interior, to complete the overall look
and enhance the character of each room.
The master bedroom also won the West
Australian Window Coverings Association Soft
Furnishing project of the year for 2015.
