Today we revisit a stunning quintessential Leura Weatherboard, on this occasion exploring the cosier spaces of the home. If you haven’t previously seen this feature property, designed by T&B Interior Designer Fiona Harding, you can explore the kitchen and living spaces here.

Beginning with ‘the snug’ aptly named for its cosy, warm embrace, this room was created intentionally as a place to retreat to on chilly Blue Mountains days, to enjoy an afternoon movie with the family.

On entering the room, the oversized ‘Under the bell’ feature pendant light, fills the tall ceiling space, creating intimacy and warmth along with the choice of mid-tone wall colour, Porters ‘Old Stone Wall’. 

For the large, street facing window, the idea of pairing of a sun protection blind with a curtain gives flexibility with light and privacy. Using the sun-block blind during the day allows the lighting in, whilst allowing privacy from the passers by outside. Then, drawing the ivory Irish linen block out drapes during the evening or on particularly cold days adds warmth, full light blockout and thermal protection. Choosing natural linen for the curtains also gives a natural, organic feel to the space.

Fiona also supported our client with furniture selection, including a Florabelle floor lamp, with a classic brass base and linen shade, once again introducing natural elements to create a space of calm. A handcrafted Molmic ‘Coogee’ Armchair features as you enter the space, custom designed using a gentle, organic print, finishes the space to perfection.

Moving into the bedrooms, the Fiona continued the theme of window furnishings, pairing sunblock blinds with Irish linen drapes. This time choosing a lighter tone wall colour, Lexicon Quarter. Using fresh white gloss trims throughout the entire house bridges the rooms together, providing continuity and flow between the interior spaces.

Finally, a productive working space was fitted with custom cabinetry, ensuring there are plenty of cupboards and draws to hide away paperwork. Finished in white with warm brass handless adds warmth and ties in with the kitchen design, creating harmony between the spaces. Vertical join board at the rear of the cabinetry provides interest and texture.

Finally, adding a custom designed Molmic ‘Coogee’ sofa, provides a space to read reports or books whilst not sitting at the desk space. For this lounge, choosing a neutral linen textile allows the opportunity to change the mood of the space with patterned throw cushions in seasonal colours.
