"I commissioned YDM Design Studio to renovate my 2 story apartment in a more modern style. Nina was very good at listening to what I wanted and also giving me great ideas about how to achieve the look I wanted. The designs were drawn up quickly and looked great. The build completed just yesterday and it looks even better than I'd imagined. I'm thrilled with the result.."
- Sarah, Collingwood Client
Our Collingwood renovation was inspired by the client's love of mid-century modern design. The Kitchen features Polytec's Tasmanian Oak Woodmatt to all cabinetry which adds warmth and texture while perfectly complimenting the new engineered floorboards throughout. The feature shelves in Polytec's Botanic Smooth were then selected as a nod to the client's dining furniture which includes gorgeous green velvet chairs. To create balance against the textured cabinetry, we selected brushed nickel tapware and handles, a simple white benchtop and white subway tiles for the splashback. The layout of the new Kitchen was also carefully considered. We changed the original U-shaped design to add an island bench instead, which created a much better flow between the spaces. The section previously underutilised under-stairs area was also now designed as a breakfast nook or appliance cupboard, making the most out of all available space.
While we kept the bathroom layout the same, the bathroom was completely transformed through the new tiles, fittings and fixtures. Keeping in with the Kitchen's aesthetics, the bathroom showcases a Tasmanian Oak Woodmatt vanity, brushed nickel tapware by ABI Interiors and feature wall of gorgeous gloss green tiles. The terrazzo look floor tiles, featuring greens, black and terracotta chips, were then chosen to tie it all in. Our half height green feature wall also doubles as a ledge, creating a practical shelf within the shower area and behind the vanity.
