MOSMAN HOUSE BY DAVID BAILEY
Rug 1 Hallway Custom Fair Isle
Rug 2 Living Room Jan Kath Boro 10 – Naturals
Construction Tibetan Highland Wool, Nettle and Silk
The brief was to develop a rug for the hallway which incorporated the colours of the very strong and graphic artwork in a subtle manner. We wanted a small scale pattern which has breaks and variation, as the space is large and the hallway quite long we didn’t want anything too regular or stripy. We used the silk in the background of the design to create an iridescent shimmer as you move over the rug. We also incorporated natural nettle to give variation in colour and strength as its used daily. The entrance hall is in the original part of the house so we wanted to keep the look classic but fresh.
The focus in the living room is on a serene neutral palette and a mix of textures. The terracotta tiled floor provides the warmth, the remaining furniture and fittings are neutral and understated. The Boro 10 rug by Jan Kath is a perfect seamless addition to a cool and sophisticated space.
