Welcome to my dream home
Welcome to the home of Rose Seidler. When completed in 1950, this home was ‘the most talked about house in Sydney’. Designed by Australian architect Harry Seidler for his parents Rose and Max, the house 'overturned almost every convention of suburban home design'. The house is now one of Sydney's Living Museums and can be visited on Sundays between 10am and 4pm.
I was lucky to visit the house on a trip t0 Sydney and the experience was one that will stay with me forever. What stuck out for me was:
- The use of bold primary colours combined with natures colours of brown and slate.
- The utilisation of wall sconce and flouro strip lights, instead of ceiling spots.
- How built-in furniture creates a simpler space.
- Two clear entrances, one internal, one external.
- The enjoyment you get from living with a large bright wall mural.
