“I was inspired by how to combine the ideas of maximalism and minimalism. The client has a strong eclectic style and I wanted to express that in the decoration and yet at the same time, there are elements of minimalism in the architecture.
The furnishing is a true collaboration with the client for this project. I also drew influences from the architecture and connection to the outdoors in the decoration. The way the lush greenery spills out from the concrete forms of the courtyard inspired a layered, rich approach to the interior decoration. The lush planting that is enjoyed from the main living areas lead to a natural colour palette of greens and golds.
The main bedroom sees a layered textured approach; fabrics woven with raffia, hints of gold and a textured wall finish to create that lush backdrop. I wanted to create an atmosphere for each guest bedroom so I selected different wall papers in each. The three guest rooms have their own individual feel yet are linked stylistically and through colour.”
