Hot off the press

Posted on Wed, 29 Dec 2010 by midcenturyjo

Drum roll… featured in the latest Belle magazine Scott Weston has sent us the photos of this luxe Sydney apartment. You’ll remember this apartment from my earlier post where Scott took us through the “befores”, his design process and some of the “durings”. It’s a tip of a top hat  towards Art Deco but with a modern quirky twist. (Click here for a reminder.) The finished home has been kept under wraps until its debut in Belle today but Scott has saved a few more photos exclusively for us. (Great shots are by photographer Nick Watt.)

“It’s now complete and the Client has moved in and brought a fantastic tapestry of belongings, artwork and furniture along with all the bespoke joinery we have designed and created the next all important layer… stamping the apartment as their own. It’s just come out in the February March issue of Belle and I thought you would like to see areas that have not been published… the all important main bathroom that really is a beautiful space to be in, the detailed birds eye joinery to master bedroom and the simple but chic kitchen with the lilac interior.”

The apartment is a play on old and new, hidden colour (Scott’s trademark coloured bespoke joinery is evident in drawer linings, subtle but striking), Art Deco meets modern with a stunning art and glass collection and Fornasetti cabinets to die for. My favourite rooms? The quirky, richly hued, tiled bathrooms referencing their deco past tease you. Old or new? Including “during” shots that make you wonder how all this loveliness came to be.





And you’ll find it all here in the latest Belle magazine.

Great pops of color!
It's serene and exciting with a great view! Summer looks pretty nice from here.

Stunning! I love the old/new deco tiles in the baths…. harkening back to another era…super cool… one thing I did not prefer, glass collection inside the fireplace…. that disturbs me…. how's about some wood ….?

other than that… BRAVO! gorgeous re-do!

I wish my pink-tiled bath looked this hot!

Wow, Scott has done it again and created a unique take on art deco glamour with a thoroughly modern twist. Spectacular setting and I love the joinery and the circular mirrors, tres chic. Well done Scott … now can you come to New York and build my dream home please!??!?

Rosie Flynn says:

Thankyou so much for the construction photos and the working drawings! As a designer its always interesting to see how much detail etc is in the working drawings to get such a great result! I love the idea of bright internal joinery carcasses.

Inspiring Again!
