On the Market: Oak Floorboards & Calacutta Marble

 When beautiful materials 
{like wide timber floorboards & richly patterned marble}
are specified in a renovation,
there is a sumptuousness which defines the architectural mood.
Isn't it fascinating how libraries are creeping back into homes?
{I have one myself, and the children can often be found
in there - as it is a room of quiet and calm.}
The house at Toorak has been renovated under the guidance
of architect Bruce Trethowan,
probably better know for his commercial & retail work in Melbourne...
...like the new Chanel store on Russell Street,
being refurbished to provide 3 levels of shopping elegance
& 1 level for staff.
Hand sketches capture so much of the character of an idea.
But back to our house with the decadent materials...
So what do you think?
Are the oak floorboards calling your name?

Would you love to live here?
