A DARLING POINT HOME IN ART EDIT

MAGAZINE ARTICLEClaire Delmar

Within the serene architecture of the newly renovated home, in Sydney’s Darling Point, STUDIO CD curated furniture, art and décor to fit seamlessly into the family home.  

Introducing curved and organic shaped furniture with contemporary appeal the art was introduced through painting, sculptures and ceramics to compliment the rooms. Selected specifically to give scale and impact, large artworks in muted and worn tones add drama through soft texture and natural references.

INGREDIENTS

1. Architects Furniture 1960-2020 - Cite de Architecture Museum

An incredible 300 piece collection of furniture, spanning 60 years, of the most iconic pieces of this century’s architects. Enjoying a privileged and private tour of the collection with the curator of the exhibition we were taken on a journey of standout pieces designed with architectural knowledge of each space. 

2. DOOQ World of Details – ‘Malibu’ Armchair

Boucle and soft curves featured throughout the fair but it was the velvet detail pinching in the oversized arms of the ‘Malibu’ chair that set it apart from the rest.

3. Restaurant Balagan

A theatrical evening of the senses experienced through Israeli food and interiors by Dorothee Meilichzon of Chzon (also known for Hotel Panache and Hotel Des Grands Boulevards) for Experimental Group. The combination of music, food, atmosphere and a highly specified design marks an unforgettable experience with details considered from the ceramic tiles, ‘Mathilda’ chairs designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso , down to the glass amber plates and green glassware. 

4. Atelier Jerome Pereira – ‘Chaos’ pendant

A magical play on poise the ‘Chaos’ light has the effect of a mobile. Formed from hand blown glass and timber to balance it felt like a sceptre hanging from the ceiling above us.

5. Paronetto Paola – ‘Paper Clay’ new pastel colour range 

Always a stying favourite for its unique raw and textured ceramic finish, the new pastel tones released in shades of blue were a standout. 

6. Theoreme Editions

This exhibition was a thoughtful celebration of emerging contemporary designers which had a serene balance of calm. I could have purchased the entire collection, in particular Francesco Balzano’s ‘Constantin’ solid cast resin stool in the softest blue/grey.

7. Birkenstock Showroom

Set within a grandiose Parisian apartment and designed by Vinson & Co the sandals sat seamlessly within the interiors layered with vintage and contemporary furnishings such as the Faye TooGood ‘Roly-Poly’ chairs and Pierre Jeanneret ‘Chandigarh’ chair.

8. Blomus ‘Fuum’ Glassware 

A beautifully unique range of fine glassware celebrating an elegantly soft curve in muted amber and grey tones, designed by Theresa Rand.

9. Exposition AD Interieurs

An incredible, standout experience of the week created by a collection of rooms within the one building. Each room was expertly designed by one of 13 selected designers demonstrating their own unique awareness of the space and creating the feeling of walking into a different world each time. Pierre Bonnefille’s room in particular captured earthy tones, textured finishes and a play on soft curves and geometric shapes nodding to mid-century and modern design representation. 

10. Moustache Showroom

The playful ‘Bold Chair’ designed by Big-Game expressed modern font and featured at the newly appointed Moustache Showroom.

STYLING THE ARMADILLO & CO AGRA CAMPAIGN

EDITORIAL STYLINGClaire Delmar

The versatility and subtle elegance of the Agra rug and its new colour ways allowed us to form multiple stories of styling.

We used a mix of modern furniture in geometric forms, vintage, mid-century and contemporary pieces that sit alongside hand formed ceramics, soft draped linens, brass accents and lush velvets.

Art House - Studio Delmar - Interior Design Project

Studio Delmar's recently completed interior design project features over multiple pages in this month's Vogue Living.

Working alongside our passionate, design savvy clients, a young family with a love for contemporary art, we created a theatrical wonderland, each room a source of visual elegance and entertainment. 

Utilising the Woollahra homes heritage features we highlighted and embellished traditional references through detailed wall panelling, soft tonal grey’s, carefully curated joinery and murals of wallpaper that encompass the room. These features create a backdrop, embracing the client’s love of European architecture, as well as creating calmness and unity to the bold art, bright pops of colour and modern furniture and décor layered throughout.

Intricate details such as visual repetition, shapes and textures form a timeless refined home that is functional yet whimsical.

ART AND INTERIORS IN ART EDIT MAGAZINE

MAGAZINE ARTICLEClaire Delmar

Art has always been a passion of mine and the right piece can change or complete a space. The use of art in a room expresses feeling, stirs emotions and adds texture and shape.  In particular I love strong portraiture, still life and ceramic sculptures which have become my signature when styling.

The Mosman Residence represents modern Palm Springs and contemporary Sydney through its design which allowed for modern yet organic shaped ceramics, touches of brass, oak timber and colour to reflect the bold designs.

Thoughtfully designed pieces sit together with relaxed family living. A harmonious mixture of colourful furniture, patterned cushions and strong decorative items fill the house and include coloured bowls, bold sculptures, strong portrait paintings and a mix of vintage and contemporary furniture and décor.

MULBERRY - THE WARM AND THE COOL

INTERIOR STYLINGClaire Delmar

METHOD
Eyes can be drawn to colour almost immediately. You may even find that colour has the ability to dictate how we feel. Colours are universal, symbolic and powerful. They are seen by some and felt by others. How beautiful would it be to capture this atmosphere in your own home?

When styling a table, you can distinguish colour through almost anything and even though viewing colour is an extremely subjective process, they can work in every aspect of your styling decisions. Take a look at these images for example. There are different shades of colour in the background, table cloth, the objects on the table and they mould together effortlessly. What I hope this portrays is an intricate simplicity. Two overall colours, one warm and one cool, that blend and intertwine. The lightness of the blue shades and the depth of the shades of red create a harmony that can be present in any home. The pieces on the table collaborate in their space, forming many enjoyable focal points for the eye. They are organised in a creative structure that emphasises their individuality, whilst demonstrating their collaboration. Look for objects that may seem unusual, that have a touch of quirkiness about them. Placing them in the same space can create a unique atmosphere, that can make your table ever so inviting.

STYLING A CREATIVE HOME

MAGAZINE ARTICLEClaire Delmar
Home-styling_Studio-Delmar_VL_p1.jpg

For a home already bursting with personality it was a pleasure for Studio Delmar to further layer the family home of artists Edward Waring, Susan Hipgrave and their daughter Nina for the multiple page Vogue Living article.

Working with the redesigned home by late interior architect Brian Keirnan and a backdrop of the owners artworks, eclectic art collection and bold coloured furniture we played on the fun yet contemporary aesthetic.


Modern furniture with vintage characteristics were brought in alongside a collection of organic and linear formed ceramics to compliment the architectural spaces. Adding to the creativity of the home a sculptural potted plant adds to the playfulness and ties in with Susan’s botanical ceramic drawings.

Owner and artist Susan Hipgrave’s exhibition “It’s a Jungle Out There” is currently being held at the Arthouse Gallery.
