4 HOME TOUR “The lounge is the owner’s favourite room in the house,” continues Cushla. “They call it the ‘viewing deck’ as its floorto-ceiling windows allow them to watch the trees in the wind and the birds in the branches all afternoon. It’s particularly nice when it rains, and the easement is flowing!” An arched amber rippled-glass door separates the house’s public and private wings – the acidic colour imbues a warm glow throughout the house and down the hallway. The terracotta flooring and curved shapes continue into the private spaces. “The main bedroom sees a textural and layered material palette come together. Terracotta flooring, inset rattan joinery, rich walnut timber andsubtleyet luxebrass accents createaplayfully sophisticated retreat that is as practical as it is aesthetically beautiful,” explains Cushla. Themain bedroom’s ensuite and themain bathroomboth nod to the ’60s with curved joinery, a spherical basin and lighting, and terrazzo and forest green-tiled surfaces, never waning from the rich colour palette of the natural bush land of flora and fauna that abounds outside the home. Still, it’s the moments of playfulness throughout that give the home a cohesive feel and an authentic connection with the garden and outdoor spaces, with its laid-back sophistication fitting in withWahroonga’s blissful lifestyle.
