The interior, once bland, is now decorative, theatrically confident and rich, a collector′s room and Richard has been bringing about the change gently, masterminding a carefully paced metamorphosis.

The interior bears no link to its exterior⁏ no link with the 1930s post—and—beam building and what it ′says′. The apartment block might be in cosmopolitan Elizabeth Bay, New South Wales. But some of the rooms suggest a grand decaying chateau, and others, the charmed eccentricity of a certain Beatonesque vision of England.

But if your purchase won‵t survive everyday use, it‘s not a steal ― no matter how cheap. Spending cash on something that will soon need replacement is a sheer waste. However, discontinued sample or floor models of expensive pieces are usually excellent buys. Even if the piece has a slight imperfection like a scratch or nick you’re better‐off purchasing it than buying an item that is not so well–made.

I know it‵s French, but I loved its Australian botanical look ― it‘s not too cabbage‐rosey, and the fabric determined the paint color for the walls in the sitting room.“ Working closely with her painter, mixing one yellow after another, Jullie finally decided upon Dulux ’Honey Sweet’, ”mixed with just a bit of black to take the zing out of it.” And surveying her handwork adds thoughtfully: ″I′m surely not a modern house person. I couldn‵t cope with all those slick clean lines.″

He can talk at length about the technique of dipping fabric in tea for a desirable faded background. He will go to great length to choose the right fringe for a chair, one that is not too fat, nor too him; and he simply "cannot live" with overhead lighting.

But down cannot be washed to remove dripped in spills and its luxurious sink‐in feeling also means the pillow must be plumped up after each use. Solid foam, which is flatter and boxy–looking, arrives in many densities ― the denser, the more expensive. Less—dense foam contains a lot of air, so it‵s easy to flatten and won‘t wear so well. Shredded foam wrapped in a casing of poly‐dac is usually a good compromise. It gives the look of down (what the pros refer to as a "high crown") but doesn't need constant plumping. It’s washable also long–wearing.
