The Leafy Suburb House
Project by Anne Resplendino
Anne Resplendino is an interior decorator and stylist in Sydney.
She was briefed by a professional couple to design the formal lounge and dining spaces in their house.
The client was inspired by a photo of a lounge room set in a Danish Palace; they liked the feel of the room - fresh, uplifting and formal and in particular, the colour blue!
Anne’s brief was to create both rooms in a modern yet elegant formal style.
A list of specific requirements included:
• The colour blue had to be dominant especially in the lounge room
• A rug with a luxurious feel underfoot and preferably blue
• A reading nook with good lighting was essential
• The dining table had to be the star of the room
• And all had to blend in with the client’s existing artworks and accessories.
Anne’s initial concept was met with extremely positive feedback.
Once she had direction, she visited various hi-end showrooms for the furniture and other items, including LightCo’s showroom in Alexandria. At LightCo, after consultation with Monica, she chose Me by Northern and the Alchimia collection by IL-Fanale to create the right light for the spaces.
