My Houzz: Calm Prevails in a Light-Filled Sydney Apartment An up-and-coming designer brings his dated apartment into the 21st century and creates a welcoming home base

Renjie Teoh, a graduate architect, renovated his 1920s Georgian-style apartment in the Darlinghurst neighborhood of Sydney with the goal of making it fit for 21st-century living. Reconfiguring rooms and installing a new kitchen, laundry area, flooring and cabinetry gave the apartment the fresh look and practical layout it needed to suit his busy lifestyle.

Drawing inspiration from Japanese and Chinese design, Teoh made use of new and collected pieces to bring his home to life. The result is a calming retreat from the daily grind where he loves to spend his downtime. “I just simply want to snuggle on the couch, feet up, with a cup of hot green tea in my hands, read a book, or just let the music run softly in the background. It’s a calming space,” Teoh says.
