Tour a Striking Australian Home That Ticks All The Boxes

, , , , By Catherine


Australia couldn’t be further away from Scandinavia, but once in a while, I stumble upon a gem of a house Down Under that ticks all the boxes. This 230-square-meter Victorian home in Sydney designed by Alexander & Co. is one of them. 

It is elegant but understated, curated but warm and welcoming, modern yet timeless. And it is furnished with the right mix of classic and contemporary design. All these elements are intrinsic to the Nordic design ethos that I love.

One of the things that makes this house striking is the respect for craftsmanship and materiality, among others. There are so many careful details and interesting touches – Notice how brass, linen, velvet, limestone, oiled bronze, essences of wood, clay, and other gorgeous textures and materials blend beautifully together. And look at the sink in the powder room – Awesome!

    Dear madame, sir
    Beautiful pictures! There is one of the living area with a black mobile on the table. Can you inquire where it’s from?

      I don’t have this info, sadly – I’d also love to know. If I find out, I’ll get back to you :)
