The objects that tell stories, the colours that call to the senses, the materials that evoke certain moods – all these play a vital part in the design of a home by Arent & Pyke. Known for their focus on the psychology of space, the design duo maintains that a well-designed home can enrich your life. Their masterful approach to colour and materials results in optimistic, meaningful interiors high on charm and comfort. With expertise in the softer nuanced tones of the tertiary palette, colours such as coral, nougat and olive, Juliette Arent and Sarah-Jane Pyke use colour to lift the spirits and arresting material pairings to evoke a nostalgic allure. Whether it’s the drama of three different types of marble or a checkerboard terrazzo floor of variegated greens, the Arent & Pyke signature style balances colour and materiality. This, their first book, addresses their design ethos expressed through joy, colour, character, spirit and alchemy, and showcases their best work. Each of the projects featured include paint names, fabric brands, key learnings and insights into how these spaces were created. Generously illustrated and artfully designed, Arent & Pyke: Interiors Beyond the Primary Palette exemplifies how a thoughtfully designed space has the power to generate a sense of grounding, comfort and freedom to create a full, joyous living experience.
