White Won­der


Dur­ing the de­sign stage, the clients ex­pressed a pref­er­ence for a clas­sic in­te­rior with touches of French de­sign in the fur­nish­ings. Con­cerned that the look would ap­pear dated over time, the de­sign team sug­gested go­ing with­out in­tri­cate mould­ing. They turned it down with sim­ple sil­hou­ettes for the walls and fur­nish­ings. These work with the Vo­lakas mar­ble slabs, which were care­fully book-matched so that the pat­terns flow. In the liv­ing area, the slabs form an in­verted ‘V’ and re­sem­ble the shape of a moun­tain and frame the fur­nish­ings in grey, white and brown. The de­sign team also in­tro­duced hints of gold as ac­cents to the tele­vi­sion cabi­net. The kitchen, fit­ted with white cab­i­nets, would have been an all-white space too if not for the fea­ture wall. It ’s been jazzed up with blue glass mo­saic tiles that match the quartz coun­ter­top from Cae­sar­stone. The coun­ter­top, which re­sem­bles Stat­u­ario mar­ble, is an easy-to-main­tain al­ter­na­tive to real mar­ble.
