Launceston interior designer Lydia Maskiell has had her work included in the prestigious 2017 Australian House & Garden Top 50 Rooms feature.

Her restoration work on a century-old room within a Launcseton property focused on a soft grey colour palette and luxe materials to develop a safe and calm space for the property owner to retreat to.

“[The] owner wanted a calm space to retreat to after demanding days,” Ms Maskiell said.

The room restoration involved implementing shades of white and grey to soften the light filtered through floor to ceiling curtains.

Details focused on a range of textures from wool, faux fur, velvet and chunky knit and darker grey and black furniture.

Ms Maskiell attended the award gala in Melbourne last week, representing Tasmania in the award categories.

Her design career began working in Canada for a renown designer where she “gained an appreciation for detail, texture and warmth” before moving to work in both residential and commercial styling.

The Austrlaian House & Gardens Top 50 Rooms feature has been running for 19 years and focuses on bringing the best of Australian design and style to the fore.
