Styling job - Ashfield Street property.

I had the pleasure of being involved in a styling project this week. The freshly renovated apartment by young architect/furniture designer Josh Fitzgerald (a director of Archier) is a great example of what can be done with in a small space. Josh has done a brilliant job with this very plain 70's penthouse apartment - opening up and simplifying the space by removing a couple of walls, replacing doors with sliders and updating a very average bathroom and kitchen. The real hero of the new fit-out is the oak parquetry flooring - hand cut and laid (in a herringbone pattern) it made my styling job so much easier - the floor is quite simply awesome! (running a close second is the grey granite bench top in the's very good!)

So we fitted out the space with some product from LUC. it really needs a cow-hide but hey... they all sold over Christmas...!! (nothing a reindeer hide can't suffice). Matt Prince chair, an Art hide ottoman and one of Zilalila's great woolen bean bags managing to still show off the floor and the apartment to it's open, light, spacious best. Linen sheets, Pendleton rug in the bedroom and accessories from byLassen, Jai Vasicek, Dinosaur Designs and Tom Dixon all look great in this space.

The apartment is for sale and is being marketed through Hobart agent Charlotte Peterswald - it's a great price for such well-finished and resolved apartment. Take a look (plus the LUC. product looks pretty good in it as well!!)
