In keeping with our annual tradition, over the Christmas to New Year period we’ll be posting the TOP TEN Australian Homes of 2016!
We’re kicking this series off today with the incredible mid century home of retailer Louise Bell of Table Tonic, her partner, architect Graeme Bell, and their kids Jasper and Anoushka, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
We do LOVE a mid century home around here, and we know you do too! This particular home is one of our all time favourites.
Last summer, we (photographer Eve Wilson and I) had the great pleasure of visiting and photographing this spectacular 1950s home on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, which belongs to retailer Louise Bell of Table Tonic and her young family. With its distinctive ‘butterly’ facade and bold yellow accents, Louise’s home is a well known and much loved local landmark.
Built in 1957, the house was originally designed by Australian architect Loyal Alexander for his own family. The project turned heads even then, first featuring in the August 1958 issue of Australian House and Garden Magazine! As striking now as it was when first built, the design of this home is a testament to the timelessness of mid century architecture.
