Filled with original features, from the pressed-metal ceiling tiles to the large box bay window, the formal sitting room exudes elegance. Custom-upholstered ‘Uncle Buck’ armchairs from Brook Furniture echo the rich hues of the vivid painting by Jane Creenaune. A glass chandelier from Custom Lighting pays homage to the room’s past.
Formal living room
The large wooden ‘April’ dining table from Zuster and chairs custom-upholstered by interior designer David take centrestage in the sumptuous dining room. Dark taupe walls, in Aalto Ropeable, create a moody atmosphere, while opulent drapes in Osborne & Little ‘Suji’ silk frame the room’s large windows.
Latte-coloured walls and tactile elements inspire rest in the luxurious master bedroom. Exquisite attention to detail is displayed all around, from the upholstered suede bedhead to the custom-stained side tables. Walls painted in Aalto Envelope contribute to the cosy atmosphere, as does the traditional oiled bronze pendant lamp from Custom Lighting
Clean lines and elegant tones add a sense of space to the compact ensuite. Large format ceramic tiles from Perini Tiles clad the walls and floor, offering a wet room-style ambience. Undercounter basins, wall-mounted taps and deep storage drawers keep the benchtops clutter free.
Elegant yet playful, the bold stripy wall in Emily’s favourite hue, Tiffany blue, is a chic and vibrant look. Try Wash & Wear 101 Low Sheen acrylic in Candy Green, $44.45/litre, Dulux for a similar colour.
The picture window
Offering panoramic views of the garden and pool, the picture window off the living area fills the space with an abundance of natural light.
‘Phoenix’ sofas from King Furniture, topped with patterned cushions from Window Workshop, provide ample relaxation and entertaining space. A pale blue rug from RC & D (Rugs Carpet & Design) adds a soft touch underfoot, while a barely-there glass coffee table contributes to the airy ambience (try Freedom for similar). An abstract painting by Sheryl Lewis highlights the shifting blue tones in the pool outside.
The all-white kitchen from Adelphi Custom Kitchens features sleek glass splashbacks and stainless-steel appliances from Miele. The large white benchtop, covered in Quantum Quartz engineered stone in Luna White
from WK-Quantum Quartz offers the family plenty of space for informal meals. Magis ‘Bombo’ bar stools from Corporate Culture complete the smart look.
A lacklustre yard was remodelled into a garden vista. The area boasts an inviting pool and spa, numerous entertaining spaces, a quiet spot with a comfy rattan armchair and elegant Dedon ‘Lounge’ furniture from Domo. Antique urns and Spartan Juniper trees give the garden an Italian villa feel.
