Simple sophistication

A case study in sophisticated simplicity, this Toorak Apartment by Griffith Design Studio looks effortless but don't be deceived. Its minimalist black and white palette with accents of wood and brass is beautifully and carefully composed.

I'm in Melbourne (Yay Melbourne for the win again!) stalking a family home in Kew.
