CONTRASTING ELEMENTS

The design for the renovation was inspired by the notion of contrasting elements.

Contrasting luxe & familiar, rough & smooth, black & white, shiny and matt.

MUTED TONES, SUBTLE PATTERN

The new kitchen and bathroom/laundry feature Spanish porcelain hexagon tiles, New Age Veneer cabinetry and honed black Indian granite benchtops.

SOFTEST VELVET ON A CUSTOM-MADE OTTOMAN

Designed to be a double duty piece, we had an ottoman custom made to suit the apartment, with luxuriously deeply buttoned French cotton velvet in the softest oyster grey. 

It can either be a dining bench, pulled up to the rustic table, or it can swing around to the centre of the room and become a coffee table or foot rest - however the mood strikes.

CONTRAST OF TEXTURE
