TYPE: Residential

SCOPE: Interior Design, Furnishing, Object and Art

CONCEPT: Blanc de Blanc

PHOTOGRAPHY: Graham Jepson

The initial brief from our lovely clients was “white, white, white! I like everything white!”. Our response was to deliver a concept “Blanc de Blanc” the art of giving good white. They had bought a sunny terrace which needed an overhall to take it out of the 2000’s.

New bathrooms and kitchen were the starting point for this renovation along with custom joinery design and furnishings throughout. The palest timber floorboards were installed along with all new light fittings. We sought to deliver a space that combined the pure simplicity of white with a continuous flow of a completely neutral wrap. The silence of white was firmly grounded through a selection of materials and finishes that were both tonal and textural. Stone used throughout the bathrooms and kitchen included shades of cream and white which continued to the furnishings. From our client’s love of green we punctuated varying shades in accents throughout. The bathrooms are a continuation of the palette with an additional layering of powdery grey finishes to provide warmth.

The result is a soothing and calming space that sits lightly with a fresh ambience.

Conway and Wise were recommended to us by a friend as an innovative and easy-to-work-with interior design company. We weren’t disappointed. Shellie and Mishell worked collaboratively with us for more than 12 months transforming our 20-year-old apartment into a beautiful, light-filled contemporary home in Paddington that exceeded our expectations.

Very different in personality and outlook, Shellie and Mishell each brought their own unique skills and flair to a challenging renovation that taught us much about the importance of light, colour, fabric, flow and - above all - harmony. Always ready to listen, they had firm views about what would and wouldn’t work. But they never sought to impose those views and readily accepted our preferences and “must haves” to give us what we wanted. They were invaluable in helping to find and coordinate the purchase of materials and furniture. And they were present at critical moments during their delivery and installation to provide quality control and ensure the tradies adhered to the design concept. We highly recommend Shellie and Mishell for the excellence of their design work, professionalism and personal integrity.
