WORDS | KARA TOWN



With subtle references to a classic French interior (an abundance of warm oak plank flooring and crisp white walls) Kara Mann has, for her clients, created a space that is light, bright, and will absolutely stand the test of time. Each room successfully flows through to another, all while maintaining a design integrity of its own. Mann has used a classic colour palette and simple iconic furnishings - both of the moment, and timeless in the same breath - with an elegant outcome. In fashion terms, this home would be best described as ‘chic.’ It is one of those homes that will have to ability to move and change, perhaps even enduring a number of successful interior iterations over the years; starting off on the right foot, with this one.
