Residence, Moonee Ponds

Interior Design Story

There were three key goals for this home renovation project which were to feature our client’s jar collection, general storage and the colour teal.

Starting in the kitchen we addressed two key functional problems such as a corner pantry with restricted access and the client was using a section of kitchen counter to work from, so we wanted to find a suitable alternative.

For the work function we found space for a stand up workstation in the built in cabinetry in the tv room. We relocated the pantry so that it was easier to access. And due to the generous ceiling height we added wall cabinets to increase the client’s storage options.

We decluttered a room to create a TV room with wall to wall and ceiling to floor storage to accommodate the workstation and our clients’ extensive collections of books and decor.

Decluttering was key in the second bedroom so that we could replace the sofa bed with a double bed to improve the functionality of this space.

Stylistically the client wanted the colour teal. We added neutral colours such as white and grey and a gold accent to complete the colour scheme and carry this through the various rooms.

Pattern was also important to our client so each space features a strong pattern. In the kitchen it’s in the splashback with a mixed set tile feature with a tropical motif. In the ensuite it’s a hexagonal teal feature tile and in the main bathroom a geometric pattern wallpaper is the key feature.

The main bathroom also benefitted from a change in layout to separate the bath from the shower which has a tiled bench seat.

The laundry storage was designed to accommodate a dump zone, art and filing cabinets all within a beautiful backdrop of a teal kit kat tiled splashback.

Our challenge with this project was balancing all the pattern which we did through a base colour scheme of teal, white, grey and gold.

Overall the outcome is dynamic, interesting and deeply personal.
