Sarah Idrissi Yazami, a Belgian designer with Mediterranean roots, has a background rich in art and creativity, which initially led her to pursue a law degree before following her true passion for interior design in Australia. Growing up surrounded by artistic influences, Sarah developed a love for drawing and painting, laying the groundwork for her design career.

Balancing creativity with the discipline gained from her legal and ballet training, Sarah approaches interior design with a unique blend of precision and artistic expression. Her designs emphasize technical mastery, ensuring they are both beautiful and functional.

Sarah believes in the power of design to evoke emotions and transform living spaces. She values versatility and layered approaches, drawing inspiration from diverse environments and experiences. Her favourite space, her studio, symbolizes her dedication to creativity and productivity, serving as a sanctuary for personal and professional growth.

With aspirations to bring her expertise back to Europe, Sarah's journey reflects her commitment to creating balanced, emotionally resonant spaces that connect deeply with their inhabitants. Her designs are a testament to the beauty and complexity that thoughtful, multilayered design can achieve.

Description of Wildash project:

Introducing the Wildash project, where every room tells a unique story yet shares a common thread of balance between existing architecture and carefully integrated new elements. 

The Wildash office is a testament to this approach, with the timber stud panel serving as both a functional "blind" and a striking design element. The deliberate decision to work around the fixed window, allowing it to slide open for natural light, showcases the studio's dedication to preserving what was existing while enhancing it with thoughtful design. In the bathroom, the use of Patagonia stone is not only an aesthetic choice but also a nod to practicality, as natural stone helps regulate humidity levels. This serene haven is a result of working with the natural finishes and soothing vibes, creating a space that encourages relaxation and tranquillity. Moving to the formal lounge, the inspiration drawn from an underground jazz bar is evident in the rich hues of dark green and warm orange. This room is designed for intimate gatherings, balancing comfort with upscale sophistication.

Throughout the Wildash project, the team's dedication to integrating new elements seamlessly with the existing architecture shines through. Each room showcases a unique mood and purpose, yet all contribute to the cohesive magic of the entire space. Stay tuned for more insights into the creative process behind this remarkable project!
