Ageless beauty
Thanks to a very personal interior refresh, this Sydney townhouse is now a superbly stylish, easy-living home.

The owners of this townhouse in Sydney’s north derive a great amount of glee from the responses of visitors to their new home. “They love that it doesn’t look like it belongs to a couple who are approaching their 80s,” says Janice Yim, who fitted out the home with fellow Studio Quarters interior designer Theresa Chan. “But downsizing shouldn’t have to mean you’re forced to accept a look you don’t love – style has no age limit.”

Beautiful design can coexist happily with low-maintenance, age-appropriate inclusions – a point Theresa and Janice make very powerfully in every corner of this property, from its uncluttered entry to the selection of furniture that’s easy to get in and out of (and not a recliner in sight). “We were given a wonderful brief,” says Janice. “The owners essentially allowed us a free hand, asking only that their home feel joyful and uplifting.”
