Headland House exemplifies the importance of personalised furniture and art selection. The family of four had been living in the terrace in the inner west for some time before engaging Lot 1 to help with the interior furniture and art curation. With concrete floors and burgundy window and door frames, the CO-AP designed house needed a textural layer to make it feel like home. It also required detailed furniture planning to make best use of the light-filled spaces.
Artworks were key to the transformation. Artist Gabrielle Poole had used the house as an art gallery/ studio prior to the family taking up residence there. Her watercolours feature prominently as a nod to the home’s former life. They feature heavily in the living room, furnished with an array of armchairs and side tables to suit entertaining. A botanical wall hanging by artist Tracy Deep animates the hallway.
The pendant in the dining room was shifted so an eight-seater dining table could be comfortably accommodated within the space. Smart polypropylene chairs are a practical choice for the children while woven and leather Moroso chairs make a statement at either end. A large wall hanging by Crossing Threads adds much needed softness to the space without the worry of food spillage.
The entry doubles as a media room for the children. Lot 1 met the challenge of this hardworking space with playful light-weight furniture that can be easily moved around, even out into the courtyard on a sunny day. The coat rack adds a functional yet sculptural element to the space, while a sideboard is a neat storage solution for technology. The whimsical Gandia Blasco rug completes the picture.
"Lot 1 have been pivotal in the design and project management of our home interior.
Lot 1's understanding of our family needs, commitment and attention to detail resulted in an amazing family home."

The layout of the bedroom was reimagined to fit a king size bed. Set up against the windows, a high wingback bedhead creates visual privacy from the courtyard below and a sense of intimacy. Opposite the bed, cupboards were added to provide additional storage, and the shelves above styled with objet d’art. Around the corner, shelving was replaced with a mirror and light to create a modern dresser.
