POCO Design have transformed the interiors of a Federation-era home by bringing a contemporary blend of rich textures and unexpected colours to each space — all to the backdrop of classic architecture.
Designed for a young family, Hunters Hill invites functionality paired with indulgent yet durable materials such as marble, velvet, and timber. POCO Designs retained some original elements of the single-level home, such as herringbone flooring, traditional wall mouldings, internal arches, and a coffered ceiling which each speak to the materials introduced. The team layered these original elements with thoughtful details such as polished plaster, brushed brass joinery and mosaic flooring that each elevate the home’s overall aesthetic and atmosphere.
The open plan living, dining, and kitchen feature a shared language of curves from the entry arches, kitchen counter, sofa, tables, and fireplace detail. A green narrative also begins in the kitchen by Melmac Interior Joinery, through to the window seat’s custom tabletop and plush velvet Studio Giancarlo Valle-designed sofa. The green and curves continue through the hallway and into the powder room, though a departure into the children’s rooms sees blue and pink embraced in the colour palette. In the main bedroom, neutrals rein, providing calming retreat. Similarly, the shared bathroom and ensuite feature a soothing swathe of whites, creams, and pearly hues.
A shared narrative of plush materiality and pungent colour ensures Hunters Hill by POCO Designs is a timeless family home that will retain its classic and contemporary core in the years to come.
