Situated in Sydney’s Darling Point, this tranquil retreat – a family-owned home dating back to the 1920s – was rescued by designer Terry Kaljo and transformed into a breathtaking space filled with style. We took a look inside for some very useful home decorating tips. Here’s what we took away:

The key to filling a room with an eclectic number of decorative styles? A whitewashed scheme with a select handful of colorful accents (black counts) to define the decor.

Juxtapose decorative styles to instill a refreshing element to the aesthetic of the room. Case in point? The dynamic wall art that instantaneously reinvents the space.

Every bedroom deserves an ornate chandelier, especially when paired with a relatively minimalist decor scheme.

A vibrant palm wallpaper, inspired by the home’s tropical surrounding, fits right in with the contemporary accents of the chic bar. Rattan stools and a woven area rug further accentuate the laid-back motif.

Vintage treasures coupled with a pair of Moroccan-inspired mirrors lend a worldly touch to the coastal deck.
