DICHOTOMY OF CONTRASTS APARTMENT
A NEW BATHROOM AND KITCHEN, IN GLAMOROUS & SIMPLE MATERIALS, ARE THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS FULL RENOVATION TO A 1960S APARTMENT, IN AN INNER CITY LOCATION.
BUILDER STUART GREIG
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
A hand made concrete basin contrasts with the perfectly smooth Indian Granite bench on which it sits.
Handles of randomly cut agate contrast with the intricate hexagon tiled floor.
