A neutral base was the starting point for this witty and whimsical Sydney house

This beautiful historic house was transformed into a contemporary city home by Claire Delmar, Creative Director of  Studio CD, reflecting the family’s passion for art, travel and fashion without diminishing any of its architectural origins.

This two-storey Italianate house built at the end of the 19th century in Woollahra, one of Sydney Australia’s inner city suburbs, features an open plan kitchen-dining-living area, plus a more formal living and dining room, as well as a study and playroom. The first floor has the main bedroom en-suite, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a nursery.
