"The colour palette for the rest of the interior comes from the jewel-like notion of the screen," says Woo. "Immediately behind this piece, for example, is an emerald green sofa, which enlivens one end of the open-plan living area. We also introduced a dining table in a purple-sapphire shade, and a wonderful gold chair in the reading room, which I call the Bewitched chair, because it reminds me of that television show, and it's a totally unexpected piece in a contemporary setting."
Woo says a lot of modern interiors are not particularly colourful, and he wanted to create something quite different. The interior also needed to have a strong international flavour, to reflect the clients' background the owners are well travelled, with homes in several countries.
"The central linking element for the entire living room is the blue-grey rug, which has a shimmering pile that creates a shadow effect. The geometric pattern is reminiscent of underwater sea ferns, with the waving fronds bringing both halves of the room together."
Other furniture in the living room includes lavender grey chairs, a dark navy sofa, which anchors the centre of the room, and custom Macassar ebony tables with drawers lined in emerald green velvet even the handles resemble items of jewellery.
"The interior is also about proportion," says the designer. "Just as in the natural world, some things are small, others are large, some tall, others low. In every room, the furniture and furnishings are balanced to create a cohesive look."
