The owners worked with an architect to build their dream mid-century-inspired bungalow, but wanted more warmth than the grey palette they had. They asked the Singapore-based interior design firm to “imbue the home with colour and warmth and make it a welcoming family home,” says Hunt.
From the front porch, the entry hall breaks off to the right and leads to the study and master bedroom. Inside, the hall opens up to an open-plan communal space that features the living and dining areas and kitchen; while outdoors is a lounge area, barbecue, backyard and swimming pool.
The daughter’s room is princess-themed with the bed’s tulle canopy; although the ink-splotch wallpaper adds a touch of edginess.
Hunt talks about the process of designing a Perth house from Singapore: “As we do with most of our overseas projects, the majority of the soft furnishings and furniture were made here in Singapore. That way, we can ensure the quality and that every element works together to complete and enhance the other elements in a room. We pack everything up, from wall coverings, light fittings, even the tiniest of accessories and ship it all off in a container. We send a team over to oversee wallpaper installers, electricians and then unpack and place furniture. This means that the client doesn’t see a gradual change as elements get delivered over time. This was a pretty instant and complete transformation of an empty building into a home, teeming with character and style. It’s fun (but exhausting) to do and the family were absolutely blown away.”
