Meet Yasmine Ghoniem of YSG Studio – the 2020 TDF + Laminex Design Awards Interior Design Award Winner!

TDF Design Awards

Yasmine Ghoniem of YSG Studio is known for her adventurous and unique projects incorporating contrasting textures and bold colour. Her studio’s incredible project ‘Budge Over Dover‘ took out the 2020 TDF + Laminex Design Awards Interior Design category last night – this young Sydney design studio is definitely one to watch!

Honed with an artisanal energy mutually celebrating whimsy and functionality, YSG (formerly known as Amber Road) transformed this hard-edged freestanding house in Sydney’s Dover Heights into a tactile haven, celebrating nuanced colour and sculptural forms. Curved walls, archways, and rounded banquette seating soften previously harsh geometric lines, while sage Marmorino polished plaster walls and blushing aubergine ceilings complement handmade terracotta tiles lining the walls and floor.

We recently caught up with Yasmine to find out more about this inspiring project, and her studio’s overarching design philosophy.
