Smart Design Studio - Sydney Architects

Tusculum revisited

Smart Design Studio received numerous awards for work completed at Tusculum, where a grand spiral staircase forms the pivotal junction between old and new. Almost ten years later, passionate new owners engaged the practice to furnish and decorate the terrace in Sydney’s Potts Point.

Richly coloured walls and classical architectural detailing signal the formal living room. The space is furnished with a pair of leather bound linen sofas and an oversized marble coffee table . A specially commissioned painting adds visual interest while acting as a sliding door for the television behind.

The original master suite had a palette of soft lilac and crisp whites. While these colours were retained, elements were added to increase the complexity and detail. This included a subtly patterned customised silk rug, a moss green velvet armchair and a sculptural bed complete with luxurious linen.
