From the designer:

Design brief  

We were engaged after construction was well under-way of this contemporary family home – the brief being to bring the WOW factor and transform the interior into a modern home, reflecting a feel of  European luxury.  

The light-filled luxurious master suite, featuring a makeup zone and dressing room/walk-in robe, and ensuite for two, is as functional as it is beautiful. 

The layered and textured bedroom is grounded with a plush wool dark charcoal carpet and grass-cloth wallpaper.

Plus, the bedroom features customised artwork and a carefully configured floorplan to allow our couple to occupy the space across varied times uninterrupted. 

The hallway – lined with both sheer floating curtains for transparency and light diffusion and blockout curtains to ensure evening privacy – leads into the makeup zone, showcase and ensuite. 

A custom featured makeup zone is positioned to take advantage of the natural light but also features concealed LED lighting.

The make-up zone features a modern example of traditional Hollywood style makeup lighting, for functionality, along with ample shelf storage hinted at behind smoked glass.

This space leads into a carefully planned robe and dressing room dedicated to designer details in its layout for shoes and handbags together with lined drawers for jewellery and precious items.

The robe and dressing area is connected to the master suite through the inclusion of the same Neolith sintered stone and warm oak finishes.

The natural textures and colouring in the stone and the warmth in the oak timber exude a calming and connected atmosphere. 

Utilising Neolith sintered stone to clad the ensuite walls as well as for the vanity benchtop creates a seamless look.

The large custom double vanity provides an elegant furniture element that complements the timber framing in the custom mirrors – and of course the wood finishes in the adjacent spaces.   

With a large freestanding tub, a walk-in shower for two and a concealed toilet for privacy, this bathroom features ample natural light from the long linear window above the shower, to the large skylight and wall of windows running along the hall and into the ensuite defusing light but also with the option to open up to views over the city. 

The considered and restrained design paired with the choice of tactile materials in a calming, classical colour palette invites the owners to linger in these carefully curated spaces.
