"Thought you may like to see our current project nearing completion in Sydney. It's for the editor of Vogue Australia & has symbolic & graphic modern interpretations of Moroccan tile patterns throughout the home.
We have reinterpreted old palace tile patterns & they appear as strong graphic:
1. Linear components
2. Coved monochromatic bathroom walls & floor
3. Backlit suspended ceilings
4. Dado walls to the courtyard.
Thanks Scott! It's an inspiring space. I can't wait to see the feature in Vogue magazine.
It's my favourite time of the week, retro time!! This week's amazing pictures are scanned from The Complete Book of Decorating. An Illustrated Guide to Designing Your Home, Corinne Benicka, Lansdowne Press, Sydney, 1980. And before someone comments they are smoking in that conversation pit. Bad people but the cushions are divine!
