Whilst in Sydney last week I received an email from Melbourne reader Anthea, who put me in touch with her sister Tina in Sydney… I think her words were “She’s got an amazing house in Tamarama by the beach… and she’s a bit of a design tragic too, she’d be able to give you cook’s tour of design shopping in Sydney!”… or something along those lines! Anyway, curiosity got the better of me, so of course I got in touch with Tina and arranged to meet!
Tina gave me so many great suggestions of design shops to see in Sydney (Surry Hills Shopping Guide to come!), and was also kind enough to show me her beautiful home so I could take some shots to share.
I hope you enjoy these photos of Tina’s gorgeous home. Thanks so much to Tina (and Anthea) for getting in touch, and for letting a complete stranger with a camera into your home!
Tina’s understated bedroom with a feature wall of ornate wallpaper in aqua/bronze tones behind the bed, dark floorboards, classic white walls and blinds, and that gorgeous Eames rocker in the corner! Lovely vibrant touch.
Tina’s second bedroom, entirely wallpapered in silver ‘Horses Stampede’ wallpaper by Florence Broadhurst. So brave! Love it.
A stack of stuff in the second bedroom. Those tram/bus scrolls are a little bit everywhere but I do still love them. Wish I has ‘styled’ this shot a little more! Was rushing a bit at this stage but in retrospect I wish I’d removed that hand-towel on the left!
