Interior designer Greg Natale has completed an interior makeover of a historic country house in Australia

The Sydney-based designer has recently unveiled a project that saw a complete transformation of a country house in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. Built in 1880, the five-bedroom farmhouse is located at the centre of a renowned racing horse stud, and the client wanted to give the home a new lease on life without disrupting its character and personality.

Being the epi-centre of a working farm, the design needed to incorporate elements of functionality and practicality. It also had to satisfy two different client aesthetics – one industrial and rustic, the other dressed and glamorous. Natale has designed colourful patterned rugs for the property and has kept the ‘pattern’ theme going through most rooms to bring a rural charm to the house. Elements of brass and steel allude to a traditional farmhouse throughout the interior, and these are juxtaposed against a range of colours and materials to create a modern country home.
