“In just under four months, we crafted a modern, audacious ‘surprise’ home for a young gentleman’s new bride,” says Dylan Farrell, cofounder of Dylan Farrell Design (with his wife and business partner Nicolette). “The time frame, to be honest, was terrifying. But, lucky for us, she overwhelmingly approved.”

For this four-bedroom Sydney home, the objective was to create modern spaces for a young family. With its quirky shapes, colors and proportions, the daring decor combines with minimalist hallmarks, and sharp details and tones throughout. Green, marble, concrete and bright contemporary artworks prevail downstairs while textures and soft hues characterize the peaceful areas located upstairs, creating the perfect balance.
