This Balmain terrace belongs to cushion designer Ellie Bradley, the woman behind Xavier&Me.
Ellie, her husband and young son Xavier (now you see where she got the business name!) moved into this newly renovated Victorian terrace in Sydney’s Balmain in October. They quickly added some colour to the blank canvas. As a huge cushion and rug addict I’m thinking it must be seriously useful to create these things for a living when it comes to furnishing your own home, and changing it whenever you get a bit fickle!
An expansive open plan lounge and dining area and a Caesarstone galley kitchen lead through 3.6 metre doors to a sunny garden.
Ellie works from home too, in this cosy looking office, which was the third bedroom. With a view of the street and glimpses of the city, it provides welcome light and inspiration.
The house has 3 bedrooms, including an upstairs parents retreat with ensuite and a second bedroom opening out onto an internal atrium (first photo).
This busy working Mum has succeeded in creating a simple yet beautiful home, perfect for life, work and play. Check out the latest Xavier&Me cushions and rugs.
