Mid Century Apartment
A NEW BATHROOM AND KITCHEN
IN GLAMOROUS & SIMPLE MATERIALS ARE THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS FULL APARTMENT RENOVATION
BUILDER STUART GREIG
The design for the renovation of this 1960s apartment, in an inner city area of Melbourne, was inspired by the notion of contrasting elements.
Contrasting luxe & familiar, rough & smooth, black & white, shiny and matt.
The new kitchen and bathroom/laundry feature Spanish porcelain hexagon tiles, New Age Veneer cabinetry and honed black Indian granite benchtops.
Softest velvet on a custom made ottoman
Designed to be a double duty piece, we had an ottoman custom made to suit the apartment, with luxuriously deeply buttoned French cotton velvet in the softest oyster grey.
It can either be a dining bench, pulled up to the rustic table, or it can swing around to the centre of the room and become a coffee table or foot rest - however the mood strikes.
Contrast of Texture
A hand made concrete basin contrasts with the perfectly smooth Indian Granite bench on which it sits.
Handles of randomly cut agate contrast with the intricate hexagon tiled floor.
