It has been a long time between posts. Twelve months in fact. A client recently asked if we were still operating as I hadn’t posted in so long. Be assured, our team at The Urbane Property Stylist is as busy as ever, recently property styling this Bardon stunner.

And the same goes for myself. Whilst raising my first child and renovating my first home, this has been the busiest twelve months I’ve ever had. I’ll be sharing a post on the renovation soon.

Staging a Bardon Home Built to Its Surrounds

Now, to the point of this post. I wanted to share this beautiful new home staged at 11 Vista Street Bardon.

This new build was recently completed by one of our favourite clients, Inform Building Group. We love property styling their builds, and you’ll see why in the video below. It’s a stunning home with incredible views. On a street fittingly named Vista Street. The layout, feature timber and finishes make it a home truly suited to  Bardon.

The property is listed with Sacha Hennessy at Place Paddington and is now inviting inspections.

An Expressive Entry

Timber is an accent present throughout this home. Present from the moment you enter. Welcome to the sitting room with a garden view.
A unique and clever space. It is both an entrance and a second media room.

Rich timber panels wrap the walls and ceiling contrasting against the polished concrete floor. We kept crisp and streamlined styling to compliment the clean lines of the timber panels and thin balustrade.
We paired a sofa in frost (white) with the Como marble coffee table, both sourced from GlobeWest. Both feature black legs which match the slick black lighting.
The furniture, rug, accessories and cushions are deliberately understated. This allows the timber, and the incredible feature fern it frames, to remain the hero.


Timber Living

Moving to the main living room, the timber transitions from the walls to the floor. Yet, timber remains a feature through the built-in entertainment unit and bench seat. It runs the entire length of the wall, and returns framing the living room distinct form the second living area below. Further timber accents are present in the window framing and louvres.

Again, this room called for neutral styling to let the timber triumph. I chose a natural jute rug from Natural Rugs Australia to add texture and tone down the primness of the other selections
The lounge setting positioned in an L-shaped layout remains open to the built-in upholstered bench seat.

Australiana Dining

Spanning a length of ten meters this room is grand. The kitchen bench alone spans six meters so a long dining table is essential to couple its scale. We used a three-meter table, which at first glance looks tiny. However, adding generous dining arm chairs creates a suitably sized dining setting. Small dining rooms require chairs that nestle under the table, whilst larger rooms allow for more expressive chairs. The upholstery of these chairs soften the timber on timber of the table and flooring.

The expansive blank wall called for three large canvases. Our client provided a brief for the property of “Australiana”. So, we selected artwork featuring flowering gumnuts native to Australia.

Adjacent the dining is a more intimate sitting area. The black coffee table tied with black tile framing the fire place. Here is a second jute rug. Round this time. It creates a border for the sofas to align with, focusing inwards to the fireplace. Clay cushions provide a subtle pop of colour and pick up the colour of the flowering gumnuts in the artwork.

Master Bedroom Haven

Property styling of a Bardon master bedroom with grey carpet, white walls and feature timber bedhead and built in low set storage.

Timber is pervasive through this home, featuring again in the Master Bedroom. Deep walnut panelling behind the bed emulates a luxurious timber bedhead. On the adjacent wall, it continues functioning as storage along the wall.

All white bedside tables work seamlessly against the timber. Cool and calming greys offset the warm timber. And a shot of blue velvet with the occasional chair completes this relaxing haven.
