WARM­ING UP

- Interior Design

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。
