In the dining room, the expansive lacquered table sits atop a floor covering of glimmering woven metal by Hechizoo from Cristina Grajales. The chairs surrounding are covered in woven strips of leather that embrace hammered satin backs.
A magnificent painting by Elaine de Kooning adds fresh vibrancy to the neutral palette, and a sculpture by Tony Cragg leads the eye to the river view to the west.
In the small cloak room, the entire space is clad in gilt panels accented with glistening mother-of-pearl commissioned from artist Nancy Lorenz.
Another unique commissioned piece travels celestially down the long bedroom hall: poured glass “planets” individually applied by Rob Wynne.
The owners directed that they wanted a colour story that would not stop one from enjoying the views in all four directions.
Drake and Anderson settled on pearl and platinum as the background, and accented it with cobalt, wisteria, lavender and citrine.
