Styling An Artist’s Former Retreat.

Coco Republic Property Styling recently styled a character filled home for sale in Sydney’s prestigious Watsons Bay, a residence once belonging to legendary Australian artist John Olsen, painter of the distinctive Opera House mural, Salute to Five Bells. Olsen is also the co-founder of internationally acclaimed brand, Dinosaur Designs.

The breathtaking c1860 weatherboard home is privately positioned behind an intimate traditional facade, with the residence opening to reveal a spacious three level abode designed by John Normyle in 2008; a design seamlessly balancing period elegance with contemporary appeal.

To enhance the residence’s inherent appeal to potential buyers, Coco Republic Property Styling utilised a sophisticated colour palette of neutrals to style the five bedroom home. Key pieces featured from the Coco Republic collection include: the Royale Dining Chair, Montego Outdoor Dining Chair, Club Slipper Chair, Downing Piped Bedhead, Juliet Occasional Chair, and St James Dining Chair.

The designer kitchen has stainless steel benches, Ilve gas appliances and a large walk-in pantry. There are soaring 13 foot ceilings, as well as a large private office, ample storage, fireplaces, picture rails, plantation shutters and original polished floors.
