Chromatic Minimalist

This palatial, house-sized apartment features whimsical detailing inspired by the classic revivalist spirt of 19th century Paris seen through a modernist lens, bold blasts of colour and a polished mix of vintage and contemporary furnishings. Set across two levels, each volume was stripped bare in order to appoint each space with soaring ceilings, and lofty, open layouts. Soft pastel palettes are interrupted by broad strokes of rich colour and unexpected artworks from our clients’ own storied collection.

The Formal Living Room features a hand-sculpted ceiling recess and panelled walls finished in a silvery-grey micro-cement. Mid-century modern accents, generously scaled sofas and a punch of scarlet lacquer enliven the space.

The open Kitchen engages both the Dining Room and the Formal Living, and the monolithic stone island doubles as both a daily breakfast bar and servery for dinners. The cabinetry’s finish evokes the beauty of tarnished, heirloom-quality silverware scattered amongst state-of-the-art, minimalist appliances and a sleek blackened steel hood.

A muted eucalyptus finish on the Pantry doors and a pair of contemporary Murano glass pendants finish off what is both a practical and polished food prep area.

The Dining Room showcases stunning views of Sydney Harbour, and the custom-crafted Wine Room is both conspicuous and inviting at once.

The Master Bedroom and Master Ensuite are connected by burnished mirror and steel glass doors. Custom-created mouldings, corbels and friezes ornament the otherwise minimalist architecture.

Pops of black, powder blues and arabescato marble dominate, and the lavish walk-in shower creates a spa-like experience.

The Study doubles as a retreat within the Master Suite and includes a coffered ceiling, bespoke conference table, lush textures and dramatic art.

As one meanders between levels, the passages and stairwells offer a journey sprinkled with sunshine and colour.  Vintage venetian glass chandeliers dot the spaces.  Aqua polished plaster walls and domed ceilings yield a backdrop of glamour and fun.

Fully dressed balcony spaces dot the perimeter of both levels, mixing modernist, comfortable seating with glazed ceramic and carved stone tables.

The Guest Suites offer a home away from home and are swathed in earthy greens, crisp whites and a curated mx of lighting.

The Powder Room was intended to feel secretive and inspiring, replete with contrasting polished and rustic stones, lightly antiqued mirror and dramatic accessories.
