HOUSE OF PJ: Steve Cordony Chooses Phillip Jeffries Wallcovering

Phillip Jeffries wallcovering sets the scene in Interior Designer Steve Cordony’s country home office.

At Phillip Jeffries, we love to find inspiration on Instagram, and one of our must-follows is Australian interior designer Steve Cordony. His classic design mixed with contemporary flair deliver a sleek, elegant finish whether it’s for a client’s house or when styling an editorial or advertising shoot. Just peep his country home, Rosedale Farm, in New South Wales. Built in 1877, he and his partner Michael Booth have been renovating it since 2017-and documenting it for all of us to see via their Instagram account @rosedale_farm.

Home Office
For his home office at Rosedale Farm, Cordony installed a Phillip Jeffries natural textured wall covering. The Belle magazine style director chose Chevron Chic in Bay Blue to add depth and warmth to his space.

"I used Phillip Jeffries Chevron Chic in the study at home," Cordony tells The Textile Company.  "The texture and pattern instantly made the space feel warm, and gave the room a subtle graphic pattern which pulled everything together."

The Chevron Chic collection harnesses the centuries-old tradition of Japanese paper weaving but mixes in modern luxury and style. For a modern graphic twist, two colors of paper are woven into a chevron flame stitch pattern in this popular collection. The natural wallcovering is a perfect fit if you want the texture of grasscloth wallcoverings but without the paneling that comes with it.


We love the way Bay Blue complements the decor of the room, which is one of Cordony’s cornerstones of design. He makes sure that each space he styles relies on similar color palettes that work together and talk to each other. With his touches of brass, navy furniture, and leather, we wouldn’t mind working from this office

Designer Tips
Want to achieve a look a la Cordony? He advises to start with a mood board. First, he develops an image-based mood board by collecting online images of rooms and products (yes, your Pinterest board counts for this step). Then he moves to a tactile or material-based mood board. Here, he’ll place different woods, marbles, tiles, and wallcoverings together to ensure they will work well.

As Chevron Chic comes in 13 stunning colors, you can mimic Cordony’s office look. And, since our New Jersey warehouse has almost 400 options in a wide array of designs in stock, many of our seamless wallcoverings are ready to ship on the same day. That means getting a Cordony-approved wallcovering in your home is easier than traveling to Australia. And won’t give you jet lag!
