A sad little cookie cutter apartment has received a dramatic makeover by Brisbane interior designer James Dawson. His Marine Parade Apartment design features bold black and white wallpaper, polished brass custom designed door handles and a bespoke “hidden” kitchen island bench (sexy legs!). Have you noticed the trend of “non-kitchen” kitchens lately especially in small open plan areas? Perhaps not the best for family living but this bijou apartment is all about drama and theatre and definitely more striking bachelor pad than kid friendly hangout. Crack open the champagne darling. It’s in the fridge somewhere behind those gorgeous black doors.
