To rest, relax and recharge, your bedroom should be a cocoon of safety and comfort away from the outside world.
When my clients purchased this apartment in Battery Point there was not space to fit a Queen Size bed in the single cream and pastel green bedroom. All internal walls were removed from the apartment and the floor plan totally rearranged to provide a bedroom that is large, light, open and flexible. It is unrecognisable from it's former self.
Set on the mezzanine level of a 1872 stone church, this sleeping area is anything but ordinary. Surrounded by bold, warm colours, dark timber and lush carpet this is a very special sleeping space. With so much to look at it seems a shame to close your eyes.
My clients loved pink. As such for the main bedroom, which was otherwise a blank canvas of neutrals, we had custom made linen curtains installed allowing the clients to add various other pink furnishings to create a room that they felt super-comfortable waking up in.
Lakeside guest bedroom
Custom made blue linen curtains were installed in the guest room of this apartment to block out light, soften the appearance of the room and to provide an injection of colour in the otherwise neutral space.
A splash of colour
The chimney breast colour matches both a small piece of blossom on a large canvas that hangs on an adjacent wall and some panes in the leadlight window that is opposite. It has the effect of bringing attention to these hints of colour that could otherwise be lost. Additionally, by contrasting, this colour also helps bring out the green in the decorative tiling around the fireplace that went unnoticed with the previous owners colour choice. These touches of colour add warmth and interest to this bedroom, which is otherwise very peaceful and neutral with a range of the Client’s existing pieces of timber furniture.
This compact bedroom had an all white colour scheme for many years. When time came for a refreshen up Woven Image EchoPanel was used to line all of the walls. This product is brilliantly versatile but its primary benefit in this fit-out was to add acoustic absorbency to the room. Double glazing had previously been fitted but airborne noise from the surrounding busy street was still an issue. Not only did the room sound quieter but it felt quieter and the dark charcoal colour used added a real sense of calm, cool, peacefulness.
Fun, bright and comfortable
This room in a 1960s apartment is now a fun, bright and comfortable place to be. The original decor's drooping floral wallpaper, tiny chandelier, putrid chocolate brown carpet and sad window treatments did nothing for this space.
