A new approach to tone and mood infuses the latest project by YSG, a 19th century heritage-listed former corner store in Sydney’s Inner West.

“A two-storey, four-bedroom, heritage-listed sandstone home in Sydney’s Inner West pares back YSG’s trademark maximalism to reveal a more mature but no less boundary-pushing approach.”

Furnishings and fixtures subtly reference Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s delicate Art Nouveau flourishes and the quiet restraint of timber framing devices prevalent in traditional Japanese interiors. Within, bold hues and textures harmoniously mingle with whisper soft sensuality.

Elegantly radical palette selections for soft furnishings mix grace with attitude. Taking inspiration from striking stained-glass floral reliefs in the original leadlight windows, their delicate jewel tones are sprinkled throughout the house.

All existing timber floors were painted a mellow pale eucalyptus grey/green.

Spaces swell and expand through pattern integration. The square macro outlines of the Travertine floor pavers sync in miniature scale with the master en-suite’s mother of pearl mosaics and the salon’s lilac open weave linen curtains, enhancing flow.
