This project was to redesign the master bedroom of a townhouse in Sydney Macquarie Park. Our customer, a young family, wanted to update the space which was rather quaint and achieve this within their budget and limitations. The generous sized bedroom was not used to its full potential and one of our aims was to make a better use of the space. As a minimum, the family wanted for the carpet to be changed, new modern curtains and furniture. During our specification meetings, we found out that she loves to read and they both liked neutrals, blue and green and liked both pastel tones and vibrant floral patterns.
We noted the existing furniture was quite dated and our customer would have liked to have that updated to more modern and elegant style.
The initial floorplan was drawn and two different variations were offered to our customers out of which they picked the one below.
Macquarie Park, Sydney
Entering through the door, one cannot miss the enormous window leading to the balcony and the greenery the room faces. We wanted to use the light and freshness and our first specification was to move the bed around so that the family can wake up to the serenity and vibrancy of the day through the window. This allowed for even more space in the room. Larger bedside tables were also specified so that the small chest of drawers could be removed.
She loved the idea of a reading corner in the bedroom and given the plentiful of space, we could not say no. a cosy armchair and a pouf were specified as well as a small side table and a floor lamp.
One of our clients' biggest concerns was that there was not enough artificial light coming from the ceiling light and ther were just two power points located on one side of the bed in the initial plan. To curb this, we added three additional power points to accommodate the new design and installed tracklights which were the better solution for the space. Each of these had dimmer switch so that the amount of light could be controlled. A floor lamp as task light was added to the reading corner.
Our customer asked us to style the bedroom and specify new modern furniture. We presented two different moodboards which differed in feel and colour scheme.
