Rich materials and a few select classical decorations are applied amidst a décor composed in the shades of ivory and gold.
An introduction to the quality of interiors to be seen is provided in the dramatic portal to this home designed by Mandali Concept. The walls of the narrow foyer are lined in bevelled mirror panels arranged in a diagonal orientation to resemble the facets of precious jewels, providing a golden sheen to the reflected light from the classical crystal chandelier, while visually expanding the width of hallway and its intricately patterned runner carpet.
The entryway spills into an open layout containing symmetrical arrangements of seating and dining furniture on a wide swathe of ivory-coloured floor tiles. Sharing the space is a fully equipped open kitchen presenting cabinetry and an alternative dining surface in the form of a bar-height island counter in white.
Both the seating and dining areas present regal table surfaces and delectably curved furniture upholstered in a shade to match the ivory tone of the architectural finishes. In contrast to the pale finishes, a matching pair of carpets ground these spaces with arrays of rectangles coloured in gradients ranging from dark to light brown. The arrangement of furniture within and between these two spaces is orderly and symmetrical in nature, making them more prominent in their visual weight to achieve a stunning ensemble.
In the seating area, two identical coffee tables are enclosed by a box composed of a pair of matching end tables and armchairs, in addition to four matching sofas. An intriguingly patterned ceiling tray reflects the footprint of the seating lounge and bears a centrally-located crystal chandelier that casts warm yellow light amidst a rectangle of white light.
The adjacent dining area is defined by a similar ceiling feature, with a more intricate crystal chandelier appointing the space with a lightness to complement the expansive view afforded by the nearby length of windows. The dining table is of a design similar to the seating lounge’s coffee tables and end tables, with a horizontal plane of stone reminiscent of travertine, a generous decorative border in dark brown, and dark wood legs accented with lines of gold.
The transitional interior is retained in the private spaces of this home, albeit with a subtle shift in colour palette – predominance is handed over to various greys instead of cream. While the family lounge presents a classically inspired L-shaped sofa set and coffee table in close proximity to the right angles of a modern entertainment console and decorative feature wall, the bedrooms display more contemporary sensibilities with unadorned ceiling trays and a prevalence of decorative right angles.
