The client was so thrilled and happy with my choice that he has been a great supporter.  Due to confidentiality I cannot give his name but I can say to you, he has kindly written a “Recommendation” on LinkedIn.  (I think you will be able to work it out).

This project was a refurbishment, makeover and styling.  The existing layout comprised a spacious open plan living included two (2) bedrooms, two (2) bathrooms (en-suite off the main bedroom), a study nook a north aspect (which is priced here) and full width balcony.  An over sized car space with direct lift access.

When briefing the client, I asked which three (3) household items he couldn’t live without.  One of those was a Persian rug that held significant emotional value because his late grandmother gave it to him.  This helped me with the colour palette.

The result was a sleek interior finish throughout.

  • Milk chocolate coloured walls help create a moody and calming effect.  The sheer curtains add a touch of sophistication and also softens the room.
  • A custom designed floating credenza is suspended off the wall houses the entertainment unit and a mini bar.
  • Because of the open plan nature of this apartment, I integrated the different zones by matching the timber veneer (Wenge) for the credenza, dining table, suspended desk and kitchen cupboards.  A soft white Caesarstonewas used for the kitchen bench tops.
  • The Philip Stark “Mademoiselle” dining chairs were reupholstered in a fabric to compliment the colour palette of the Persian rug and a feature wall was also upholstered in the same fabric to compliment the chairs.
  • Everything was customized for this client including bed linen and even the bathrobe while working within a very tight budget.  No detail was left unattended.
