This renovation was for a relatively new property. Only
three years old, it was in need of a severe overhaul as it
lacked warmth and personality.
The client desired a fabulous family home that was
conducive to entertaining, but suitable for the everyday life
of a young family.
Jodie Cooper Design set about redesigning the house
as a home -- creating a luxurious yet intimate space, while
enhancing the magnificent city views.
To transform this residence from cold and unfeeling to
warm and inviting, Jodie Cooper Design translated the
personality of the clients and their interests into the decor.
Their admiration for the Pilbara has been reflected through
the colours and textures used throughout the home.
Employing an eclectic, global style, Jodie aligned
modern pieces with handcrafted rustic objects and
Sahar (temple) rugs, while placing wooden carved pieces
alongside soft furnishings. This created warmth and texture
in what was previously a cold space.
The cabinets for the study, activity room and dining
area were custom designed to look as if they were
part of the original building rather than an addition.
The dining area's cabinets, in particular, were cleverly
designed to incorporate a recess originally intended
to be a fireplace.
All of the artworks throughout the home are by local
artists and based on a photographic book of the Pilbara,
which was commissioned and produced by the clients.
