“This is a forever home for our clients, a place they plan to enjoy with their children’s children,” says Alexandra of this new build in Sydney, designed by architect Luigi Rosselli. The owners, a family of six, briefed Alexandra to create a classic yet contemporary interior featuring luxurious finishes while retaining a warm, family environment. The kitchen is a triumph with custom joinery in oak veneer, marble benchtops, handmade tiles on the splashback, travertine flooring and accents of black. The standout is the vast island bench topped with Calacatta Oro marble. “It’s oversized to allow the four teenagers to sit together at any given time,” Alexandra says. The caramel tones of the oak joinery tie in beautifully with the gold veins in the marble.
