In the beachside Sydney suburb of Cronulla, a split-story midcentury residence was reborn with dynamic wall art and pops of color. Sydney-based interior architect Yasmine Ghoniem and artist Sonia van de Haar worked closely with the owner, Harry Kapoulas, and his wife, Boel, to renovate the 2,690-square-foot home in a way that reflects the couple’s upbeat personalities. Throughout the interior, van de Haar’s abstract murals display shapes and lines that were loosely inspired by aerial photographs of the surrounding terrain.
