Interior Themes -
Australian Living

Creating a feeling of cohesion with your natural landscape is a key feature of the Contemporary Australian Living Theme. Taking design cues from our lifestyle, climate and surrounding environments. This translates into free flowing indoor/outdoors spaces flooded with natural light, high quality yet casual furniture and pops of texture and pattern in our soft furnishings. Australian art and décor showcasing beautiful photography of native flora and fauna are prominent, creating a casual and relaxed atmosphere.
