Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful William Morris author, designer and craftsmen

The words of William Morris resonate deeply as you reflect on the simplicity and beauty of this special Ainslie home.

A delicate palatte of white on white, filtered light, organic materials and simple design have created a most inviting and intimate home.

When you understand the home belongs to a highly regarded and recognised Canberra artist, a painter of flowers and gardens, the organic interplay in the beautiful neutral interiors speak to the subtle variations and allow for crisp contrasts.

The home employs its carefully contained palette to arrive at striking compositions and luxurious impressions. Set against the intricacy and abundance of nature and the outdoors, the understated elegance of this design sets it a notch above and apart.

Just as the art brings beauty and sophistication to the interiors, the carefully curated and thoughtfully designed gardens encourages intellectual and emotional reflection.

The home provides comfortable and warm accomodation, three generous bedrooms, fully insulated with double glazing throughout and thoughtful connectedness to the beautiful gardens and bush reserve.

One may consider the timing of this home most appropriate. In the month of November when the Design Canberra Festival celebrates canberra as a global city of design, the words of William Morris aptly conjure an image and deeper understanding of this very special home in Ainslie.
