Located in the centre of a renowned Australian racing horse stud, this five bedroom bluestone homestead was built in 1880. In recently underwent a complete interior makeover.
The client wanted to give the home a new lease on life without surrendering the character and personality that its heritage and role at the centre of a working farm, afforded it.
One of the challenges Natale faced was sensitively filling such a large house with sizable furniture pieces that would create comfortable living spaces, all the while satisfying two client aesthetics – one industrial and rustic, the other dressed and glamorous.
Greg Natale founded his award-winning interior design company Greg Natale Design in 2001; one of Australia’s top design studios, Natale’s work examines the integration of design and decoration in residential, retail and commercial spaces as well as residential exterior design.
Directing his passion for the principles, possibilities and heritage of design towards creating inspiring spaces that span from awe-inspiring to intimate, Greg Natale’s style is a study in vibrant colours, contrasting graphic details, geometric patterns and rich textures. Through exploring the layering of textures, tightly editing a visual sense of balance as well as thoughtfully styled modern touches Greg Natale has hewn for himself a signature look.
“In my industry, it’s all very well to be on trend, but what gives a design longevity and meaning is the connection it makes with people,” says Natale Today, Greg Natale Design’s product portfolio also continues to grow with commercial and residential rug and carpet collections for Designer Rugs, wallpaper collections for Porter’s Paints, furniture ranges for Stylecraft and World’s Away as well as a cement tile collection with Teranova. Later this year Natale will also be releasing his first cushion collection.
September 2015 will see the launch of Greg Natale’s first book, The Tailored Interior. With a forward by Jonathan Adler, this is a design-lovers tome, demystifying the process of interior design by addressing the process holistically and in real terms, accompanied by breathtaking photography of Natale’s projects by acclaimed photographer Anson Smart.
