A new high-end home in Ivanhoe, this project was driven by the client’s brief for a French Provincial luxury home that sits grandly upon the site. This home was designed with luxury in mind, and luxury was what the client got.
The ground floor, being the mancave, features dark wood flooring and dark grey wall panelling as the key feature. The main sitting area on this floor features opulence furnishings and a black marble fireplace with gold details adds a cosy yet extravagant touch. This is carried on to the pool area and the TV room where, even though intricately detailed, the furnishings have a calm and homely feeling. The bar room features full height display shelves which also double as a hidden door which leads to the wine cellar which was designed to make visitors feel like they’re in a cave.
The first floor is the main living area. This level is lighter and the implementation of gold elements, luxury furnishings and natural marble make visitors feel like they’re in a showroom. The green modular sofa adds an element of colour. The white marble tv feature also doubles up as a fireplace that was designed to make it feel like it’s ‘elevated’, making it look less heavy.
The second floor contains the private living areas. We designed a separate family area that’s light and cosy. We wanted the private areas to sooth the homeowners from the glitz and glam of the other levels. The design of the master bedroom evokes calmness with the beige and gold colours gently introduced.
