Designed by an Australian architect as own family home in the 1950s, this easy, breezy, beautiful midcentury in Sydney's northern suburbs is, once again, a well-loved home for an architect's family. Owned for the last five years by Louise Bell, owner of home goods retailer Table Tonic and architect Graeme Bell, the house, just featured on The Design Files, has been carefully renovated in that time.
And most of the work, including restoring all the steel and timber frame doors and windows, as well as introducing a new '50s-style sandstone fireplace and teak joinery, were done by Mr. Bell himself. The interiors, a refreshing palette of black, white, yellow, and greys thrives in the bright and airy space, as do various textured wall hangings sourced from Table Tonic.
