The beauty of paint and Wallpaper never ceases to amaze me…MMiD were recently lucky enough to be invited to do a small project to a terrace home in Annandale, a suburb inner west of Sydney.Our quest was to transform rooms that had been painted but needed that little bit more, Our solution to this was a fresh coat of paint and feature wallpapers “Also known as the Tashy special”.  The owners initial reaction to wallpaper was that she loved the light and airiness of the rooms and didnt want to rob them of the natural light that existed. With this in mind we set about trying to find the perfect wallpapers..

The Lounge

The owners passion for all things monochromatic lead to Osborne and Little’s Chinese Dragon wallpaper from Seneca.

This ensured a simple palette remains but it gave the room the required drama.  The wallpaper was hung on a small wall at the end of the lounge so when you look through from the front of the house to the back you can see the dragons.

The Dining

This room is in the centre of the house with not a huge amount of natural light.  Keeping it light and airy was the main focus but hewing the wallpaper to sit with both silver and gold reflects that existed in the room was also a requirement.   A geometric pattern in pewter by Neisha Crosland (from Designer’s Candy) was selected as it was light enough not to rob the light and worked the gold/ silver tones.  I loved this wallpaper and the statement that it gave to the room.  I think if I had had my way I would have done the whole room and not just a feature wall.

Over the next few weeks we are having some new lights installed and look forward to being able to share.

Remember Life’s too long for bare interiors……….

Love Tash and The girls xx
