Family of five and a schnoodle

Building a new home to their own design was a chance for this couple to create a home that not only practically suited the needs of their busy family, but was also stylish and stood apart.  The design brief - to balance luxe and glamour with urban industrial.

Engaged early in the process, the project required us to specify all the finishes for the home, creating a unified look throughout, allowing us to work closely with the architect and building company to create a well resolved, beautifully finished home. 

Walls of windows facing north and west flood the home with light and allowed us to use a moody colour scheme.  The palette included layers of rich and tactile materials - concrete look tiles used on floors and walls, rusticated timber flooring, metallic cabinetry, statement stone and antiqued glass. 

Special attention was paid to the selection of feature lighting throughout. Furniture, window treatments and furnishings continue the balance of style and function - selecting special new custom pieces of furniture to complement existing pieces.  

The finished home is cleverly cohesive and most definitely stylish - and a unique reflection of the lifestyle and personalities of this family.
