A fusion of Peter Staunton’s creative vision and the exquisite beauty of Art Deco-inspired décor from KOKET this is a sight to behold for everyone who adores a glamorous blast from the past.
The low pitched roof design of LeanToo helps it retain the classic ‘cottage’ feel even while ushering in a modern vibe offering the best of both worlds. Responding to the unique demands of the site and creating a harmonious contemporary getaway this fabulous Texas cottage is both intimate and open at the same time.
The attractive teak screens go beyond being mere eye candy as they bring in a flood of natural light and provide the right level of ventilation on the second level of the house even while protecting those inside from prying eyes and rough weather.
It is the glittering dining room that undoubtedly ends up being the showstopper of these transformed spaces with its silky chandelier vintage-inspired Orchidea cabinets and the silver and black Nanook Chairs from KOKET. But all these seem to only play second fiddle to the two diamond dust paintings of Marilyn Monroe and that should barely come as a surprise to anyone!
The fifth-floor apartment has a more industrial-retro feel to it with exposed concrete walls and an iron frame-coated glass closet setting the mood indoors. Space-savvy décor and smart lighting complete the interior where comfort is coupled with ergonomics in an efficient fashion.
The latest extension also brought along with it a revamped kitchen and guest room that embrace a neutral color scheme while the rest of the cottage offers ample opportunity for the homeowners to display their wide art collection.
Bringing in plenty of natural light and giving the old home a brand new lease on life the lightweight extension does its very best to blend in with the existing brick façade even while showcasing elegant contrast. With the house being revamped even the rear garden and alfresco space were altered and given a fresh perspective with many of the indigenous ferns being carefully relocated and donated to Belgrave Square.
