Jill Sparrow’s Sunny Combined Kitchen and Dining Room

Combined Kitchen and Dining

Granted, Creatives, I’ve not heard of Saratoga on the NSW Central Coast – but I’m ready to book my train ticket (or chopper flight) ASAP if it means I get to soak up the sun in this combined kitchen and dining room. Belonging to Creative Jill Sparrow, this three-bedroom home is a sun-lovers dream and is decked out with some stunning pieces that make me want to grab at my chest; reminiscent of a daytime soap character when their beau comes back from the grave!

One street back from Broadwater, Jill tells me that it’s a space she feels 100% at home in.
“I finally feel that I never want to move again,” she explains. “The home is full of an eclectic mix of furnishings old and new. Everything seems to have found its place, and as a would-be stylist, I finally feel content”.

And with good reason! I love the mix of vintage and contemporary pieces in this space (adore the ‘On Air’ sign); they seem to work in perfect harmony against the neutral backdrop. It’s so wonderfully calm yet interesting at the same time.

“I love the light that enters the room at all different times of the day,” Jill says.  “Not just through the front doors, but also through the highlight windows”. And what a view she has out those doors!

I have to admit, Jill – I am hitting a homewares store and fruit shop pronto to score me some lemons like the ones you’ve styled above – simply divine!
