A Look Inside The New York Loft Inspired Project by Peachwood Interiors
Style Sourcebook Profile: Peachwood Interiors
Here at Style Sourcebook, we love seeing our design community’s mood boards coming to life. Say hello to the Selworthy project, a New York Loft inspired home that started as a mood board on Style Sourcebook and was brought to life by the talented Andriana from Peachwood Interiors. Andriana is a resident interior designer at Peachwood Homes and brings to life a plethora of projects, with Selworthy being one of them. With an aura of sophistication, Andriana creates projects that are anchored in minimalism and incorporate textures such as marble and other natural elements. We recently sat down with Andriana and talked all things design style, mood boards, and of course uncovered a behind the scenes look into the Selworthy project that has taken our breath away.
Hi Andriana! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and Peachwood Interiors?
From a young age, I was often curious about what it was that made people happy. It led me to studying Psychology. Prior to interior design, I worked as a HR consultant working with executives and senior leaders, for almost a decade. My role was to provide insights on how to best motivate and engage their employees. In many ways, it’s not dissimilar to what I do now in my interior design role – which ultimately is helping clients create an environment where ‘users’ of the space, feel a sense of ease, of joy and inspiration. So much of a person’s individual style, I feel, ties back to their psychology. It’s straightforward in my mind; understand how someone best operates, and then create a functional and beautiful space to reflect that.
In terms of Peachwood Interiors, the business was born from my unwavering obsession to help others love the space they live and work in. I know first-hand how impactful redesigning a space can be on someone’s state of mind and the consequential ‘pull’ this creates. The ‘wanting’ to spend more time in the space. I wanted to share that with as many people as I could.
How would you describe your design style?
It centers around Scandinavian design style. There are various interpretations of this style nowadays, but the style for me, is anchored in minimalism, a focus on function and incorporating beautiful textures like marble, and other natural elements.
You’ve been part of the Style Sourcebook community for a long time, how do you use Style Sourcebook mood boards within your design process?
Using Style Sourcebook for mood board creations is a standard part of my design process. It’s the beginning of the validation process and allows the client and I to have a clear understanding of direction and theme for the space. I stumbled upon your website and used it ever since. They say a picture says a thousand words – if so, a mood board must say a million!
Your Selworthy project is gorgeous! How did this project come to be and what was the inspiration behind it?
Thank you! Our Selworthy clients were introduced to me through my husband, who is a (talented) builder. He had already begun work for this client and frequently heard them mention they were feeling stuck and unsure about their choices, to which he replied, ‘You really should chat to my wife!’ A phone conversation and two emails later, we were working together. As demolition was already in progress, we moved quickly, getting a deep understanding of their needs and wants in the space. I have what I like to call a ‘formula’ to really help this process along. We landed on a ‘New York Loft’ style, with elevated pieces weaved in, to create a timeless sophistication. It’s been such an exciting project to be involved in, and our clients really trusted us, which is always such a privilege. I don’t take for granted that renovating a home, for most people, is a once in a lifetime event. Almost a year on, I still consider these clients as friends.

What does a typical day in the life look like for you?
Cliché I know, but no two days are the same. Some days are spent consulting with clients (virtually mostly these days) and sourcing and selecting for projects. Others are spent viewing supplier’s show rooms, and other days are spent on the building site checking up on build progress! I do like to keep some things consistent about my weekdays – dropping my girls off at school followed by reformer Pilates. They’re my non negotiables.
Do you have any exciting upcoming projects that you’d like to share with us?
Every project is exciting its own right. One that is on the horizon though, is a project in Byron Bay. I have a friend moving there who really wants to create the house of her dreams and has asked me to get involved when the time comes. I’m thrilled for her and the chance to support her to make that dream come true!
