The kitchen is enveloped in fumed rift-sawn white oak with marble accents to create a warm and inviting space for get-togethers.
The private zone, which includes an ensuite master bedroom and two additional versatile ensuite bedrooms – one that doubles up as a gym and the other as the wife’s office and lounge room – are located in the back half of the unit. A long hallway connects the two zones.
Working within the theme of “warm modern”, Alison mixed sensual mohair, silk, cashmere and linens in cream, dusty rose, and butter yellow with polished and matte metals, and specialty finishes like resin and rock crystal.
She used fumed, rift-sawn European white oak for the wall panels and the kitchen cabinetry, and a silk-and-linen blend wallcovering from Stark throughout the communal areas to create depth and warmth. “We created a simple detail pallet with knife edge light coves that served as our ‘crown’, and flush base and casing details with reveals between wood and wall. We kept the
envelope of the apartment neutral with bronze and blonde tones so the clients’ private art collection could really shine,” says Alison.
A moonstone and gold fire screen from Come FR which Pickart had found in an auction booklet was a key item that set the tone and direction for the entire project. The goatskin parchment and brass sideboard from Scala Luxury, which separates the living area from the dining area, was another unusual piece added momentum to Alison’s design conceptualisation.
“This sideboard houses the television on a swivel mechanism that can be automatically raised and swivelled so the entire apartment can view the television screen. All of the cabling and electrical wiring are hidden underneath the floorboards and come up through a tidy grommeted opening directly underneath a hole in this sideboard. This keeps the entertainment system discrete and tidy. The decorative elements of the piece – the vertical brass and goatskin parchment sections – travel up the front, back, and over the top of the sideboard, creating dynamic visuals from all angles,” says Alison.
The powder room walls were clad in DeGournay’s ‘windswept cherry blossom’ and Pickart complement this stunning wallcovering with a bronze mirror vanity and monochromatic flooring and fixtures.不可多得的家品，為Alison帶來更多設計意念。
