Sydney Spanish Mission Beach Apartment
I have loved this apartment ever since I stumbled across it in Design Sponge over a year ago. It is the home of interior designer, Sarah Davidson and embodies what I love about great design: beautiful evocative aesthetics filled with the personality of the occupant mixed with functionality and ease. It is a relaxed home which invites you to sit down and take it easy. The location in an iconic 1920s Spanish Mission-style building overlooking Tamarama beach in Sydney isn’t too bad either.
Some highlights for me is its size (small) with an eclectic mix of furniture and furnishings including art such as a piece by the Australian photographer Bill Henson famed his chiaroscuro paintly atmospheric work. I can spot Ikea mixed with vintage (such as the bamboo chair) and iconic 20th pieces such as Harry Bertoia “Large Diamond” armchair and platinum-glazed “Bishop” side table by India Mahdavi.
Bathrooms are so often neglected and can appear to be a bland after-thought. But the Moroccan tiled bathroom here is breath-taking. No wonder it is Sarah’s favourite room in the house.
It makes you wonder why apartment living is not that popular in Australia.
