An­gela Locke adores Ital­ian de­sign, as re­flected in her choice of liv­ing room fur­nish­ings, the ma­jor­ity of which are from Bax­ter. Linen-cov­ered so­fas by Lin­teloo add warmth to the ex­pan­sive space.


An­gela Lock­e熱愛意大利設計,從客廳多種傢具裝飾中即可見一斑,大部分作品均來自Bax­ter。Lin­teloo覆上亞麻布的沙發為開揚天地注入暖意。 opted for an Ox­ford Stone hue from Far­row & Ball. Then she se­lected the cur­tains, fab­rics and car­pet­ing, all in neu­tral tones, to form a blank can­vas upon which she could de­ter­mine how each space would be used, and per­son­alise it ac­cord­ingly.

An­gela took pains to en­sure the fam­ily home is as tech­ni­cally ad­vanced and func­tional as it is chic. She spent a month on the Lutron light­ing and then went through the elec­tri­cal plan with Mark Ka­vanagh of Fu­ture Light­ing to make sure it all sat well with the lo­ca­tions of the fur­ni­ture. "Our pro­ject man­ager was David Daniel and with his help, we found the process of adding in eco-friendly tech­nol­ogy – such as the geo­ther­mal lake loop and the Ni­lan air cool­ing sys­tem – quite sim­ple," adds An­gela. She fur­ther cred­its their build­ing con­trac­tors, Colin Res­i­den­tial, who were on-site at the time and proved to be easy to work with and very re­li­able.

This looks like a house built for en­ter­tain­ing, with its mag­i­cal panora­mas of the lakes that stretch on to in­fin­ity, the seam­less in­te­gra­tion of in­door and out­door spa­ces, the stylish 12-seat din­ing room (filled with warmth de­spite its size) and the state-of-theart open kitchen. An­gela ex­plains that this is in­deed the case. "The ground floor was de­signed for en­ter­tain­ing and we have had quite a few themed par­ties for Christ­mas and

屋子設計跟其四周景色同樣吸引,讓置身其中的人不其然放慢腳步,放鬆身心,細心欣賞周邊美景。「我希望打造一個寧靜和諧的世外桃源。」An­ge­la解釋。於是她展開了搜購天然元素之旅,摒棄塑膠或人造東西。她先從牆壁色調入手,挑選了Far­row & Bal­l的Ox­ford Stone色,窗簾、布藝和地毯也採用中性設計,為全屋定下基調,好讓他們能因應不同空間的用途注入特色和個人元素。

屋主費盡心思,務求令居所集智能、功能和時尚於一身。她花了整整一個月挑選Lutron燈飾,再跟Fu­ture Light­ing的Mark Ka­vanagh一同研究電線規劃,確保跟傢具擺放的位置相配合。An­ge­la補充:「我們在工程經理David Daniel協助下加入環保科技,例如環形地熱線和Ni­lan涼風系統,安裝容易。」她亦大讚建築公司Colin Res­i­den­tial可靠,跟他們合作十分順利愉快。
