Seen in her former home in Sydney’s Woollahra, a very secluded four-bedroom Italian-style building surrounded by a lush garden filled with statues. Zampatti is distinctive with an intuitive play on Italian romance. In the following, we will go further into this beautiful house.

Her heritage and beloved home have not been spared from their stunning Italian design. as reflected in the entrance hallway. She combines sculpture by Elisabeth Frink to fill the corners of this area.
The Living Room
She bought this house in 1975 at a time when real estate became very affordable. The house, built in 1928, was left intact, except she had painted the floors white and revamped the kitchen. But for all the bathroom remains intact, just like it was in the late 20’s. The living room is filled with classic, but timeless interiors and ornaments.
In the library, there is a Pierre Jeanneret chaise longue alongside a carved table and classic patterned tapestries. It also incorporates indoor fresh plants and lets natural light be its main supplier.
The Dining Room
