Living Room - ManlyMediterranean Living Room, Sydney

Salt Interiors custom joinery was featured in the August issue of House & Garden Magazine. For this project, Salt Interiors worked with Senior Interior Designer for Coco Republic, Natasha Levak to provide custom joinery for the 1930s Spanish-revival home. Levak’s vision for a neutral palette helped to determine the polyurethane paint for the renovated joinery unit Salt installed in the room.

    Hi trixeepixel,

    It is a Strelitzia Nicolai Palm. They are relatively easy to find in Australian nurseries. Ee just had a quick search online for you and even found some available at http://www.palmsonline.com.au/products/nicolai/13/1.

    We hope this helps.
    All the best,

    Hi emma moran

    Thanks for your question.

    The doors seen in the Manly living room are arch top french doors.

    All the best,

    Hi [andrew1990[(https://www.houzz.com.au/user/andrew1990)

    Thanks for your question.

    The side tables with dark shell detail and gold legs were added by the Interior Designer, Natasha. The Ichibald side table from Oly [ www.olystudio.com ] adds an understated glamour to the room.

    Good luck with your project.

    Best,

    The Team at Salt Interiors

    Hi Brooce,
    Thanks for the question. Here is what the interior designer Natahsa let us know about the custom chairs: The stone washed linen sofa is flanked by side chairs in Dedar Allure in Zebra- a snakeskin- embossed glazed cotton with ebony stitch detail adds a pattern without being dominating. I loved the contrast piping on the armchair, it's an upholstery detail that can define the silhouette of a piece and ensure the fabric doesn't overshadow the core shape of the chair.

    Hi lmgowdie,
    The Interior designer had the ottoman custom made with a firm, deep-buttoned top to ensure its dual use as a footstool and a coffee table. Thanks for the question!

Keep it simpleSpanish Mission and modern houses from the 1970s often had decorative arches incorporated into the interiors. These homes are now popular choices for updating. It can be easy to refresh arches in these homes: smooth dark, heavy brick walls with render; remove and replace outdated wall claddings and coverings; repaint with a white or neutral colour palette; and install newly designed doors and windows.Tip: Use steel-framed doors and windows for a contemporary look and a slim-profile frame within an existing arch.Find an architect near you on Houzz to help you modernise your home’s period features

Be water wiseOver- and under-watering are major hazards for houseplants. Make use of technology to keep your watering on track. Read your plants’ care labels (photographing before disposing of them is a great idea) and set reminders on your phone for watering day. Before watering perform the ‘finger test’ to determine whether the soil is moist or dry. Place your finger in the soil at the base of the plant and dig down two to three centimetres. If the soil feels moist, leave off watering and check again in a couple of days’ time.

Neutral hues“Tan works really well with other neutrals including charcoal, off-white or punchy black,” says interior designer Tennille Joy Burnup of Tennille Joy Interiors. A statement piece, such as a leather upholstered coffee table or a vintage armchair, pairs perfectly with a muted colour palette ranging from white and light taupe through to darker greys and slate.See more neutral and beige living rooms

Nice mix of materials and colors-except ottoman too strong. Notice the console behind sofa is similar in style to yours.
