Multi-award-winning interior designer Natale takes readers deeper than ever before into his intricate approach to layering – the process of curating and editing elements to create warm, welcoming interiors.
Told in Natale’s refreshing, personable style and accompanied by rich visuals, The Layered Interior is a celebration of the design elements that give a home character, such as vintage and contemporary furniture and lighting, artworks, ornaments, and accents thoughtfully combined with colour and pattern – from the lush feel of a burgundy velvet chair to the dynamic effect of an Art Deco rug and the way wallpaper can transform a room. Featured residences include a modern palazzo on Queensland’s Brisbane River full of arches, red and gilt elements, and glorious patterned wallpaper; a Melbourne city mansion that is all sumptuous hues and dark, moody opulence; a penthouse on Sydney Harbour blending soft pink tones and sculptural curves; and another penthouse in Melbourne’s exclusive Toorak suburb that channels a dazzling Dynasty vibe.
Through eight in-depth projects photographed by Anson Smart in all their exquisite detail, The Layered Interior explores the many layers of Natale’s interior designs, from the initial concept and inspirations to the sumptuous application of finishes, furnishings, and accessories. A captivating journey through the sophisticated interiors for which Greg Natale has become known, this book is layered with colour, pattern, texture, and storytelling.
