Home Tour: Colourful Home of Sydney Artist

One of the reasons I started writing Bright.Bazaar was because I felt passionate about people using colour to express their personalities through home decorating. So you can imagine my instant delight the moment I saw this tour of Daimon Downey's Sydney home. And, really, Downey's home couldn't be more fitting: he has literally decorated his home with his own colourful artworks and quirky finds; the items upon his classic Parker sideboard are testament to this. The reflection of Downey's relaxed vibe continues as sporadic brushes of paint adorn chairs throughout the property. Yet, his use of colour isn't entirely unhinged - notice how the dining area is painted in a bold orange hue across the two corner walls. This helps to zone the eating area as a separate space from the rest of the open plan room. Fresh, vibrant and invigorating - I love this home! What do you like about it?

  19. What do I like about it? Hmm, everything, I guess! :-) But I have to mention that old trumpet, it is just perfect. I usually know about a place or a home that I like it, when I realize I would love to have a piece of it in my home, too. Well, that trumpet is a MUST! :-)

    I LOVE LOVE bright colors all mixed and mashed together! That's what makes this house so happy to me! I paint furniture for my dreary therapy room at work...so much so that my boss calls it "The Dr. Suess Room"!!

  22. I love the paint splattered on the floor! Growing up I was always getting in trouble for spilling paint on my bedroom floor. Hey, an artist has to do what she has to do! ;)
