“Enviably located opposite the gardens and War Memorial in St Kilda Rd, Melbourne, this three bedroom apartment in the iconic tower of The Melburnain complex was well due for a refresh after 20 years. Being a weekend city escape for our clients, the brief was that the apartment feel like walking into a luxury European six-star venue.
We had the luxury of free rein and completely gutted the existing fixtures and finishes, in order to overlay the more classical elements required. The addition of wainscoting and brass mesh to create a more intimate nook for gathering and listening to music was enhanced by the use of the ever so beautiful Horsehair Roan grass cloth wallpaper by Phillip Jeffries in the softest of blues. Being the only space in the open plan kitchen/living/dining space allowed us to define the music nook and create a beautiful, soft and textured ambience.”
