This Mosman period home renovation beautifully combines traditional elements with contemporary architecture for a striking aesthetic that bridges old and new.

The existing cottage at the front of the home was fully renovated, with older heritage features such as the tessellated tiles being restored to their original condition. The team at Sunday Homes added a second storey to the home, as well as an open plan kitchen, living and dining room, and deck leading onto a new pool and spa.

The client’s brief was about creating a sustainable family home that was both practical for everyday living and entertaining. The addition of newer, more modern elements to the older home created distinctive contrast, however the use of consistent colour palettes on the tapware, tiles and flooring kept the overall feeling seamless.

The colour scheme was kept neutral and classic, although pops of colour were used throughout. Crisp white walls, tall ceilings and timber flooring are featured in the spacious and light-filled living areas for an inviting interior, and sliding doors opening onto the deck bring the outdoors right in.

 

Quality was an important part of the client’s brief, requiring classic pieces that would last a long time and remain functional for everyday family life. They chose our Gunmetal tapware in the main bathroom, adding contrast to the neutral space for a striking and dynamic look.

A parents retreat was added on the second level, including a study, walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. The spacious bathroom, complete with a large window and skylight, has a coastal feel introduced by the blue vanity and panelled wall. Gunmetal tapware has been used again with the artful blending of our Pegasi and Zeos collections.

The blue colour scheme used deliberately throughout the second level is continued into the powder room to create a moody setting. All elements within the space are brought together with the patterned tiles which incorporate light and dark shades.
