Adopting a less is more mentality, our Brighton East project was designed to be simple yet impactful. Starting with a brand new floor plan by Elements of Home, the layout was completely transformed without the need to extend. The new rooms were designed to be functional, spacious and filled with natural light. Building on this, a base palette of light neutral tones was selected to ensure the home felt light and bright at all times. Contrast and interest was then created through the black fixtures and fittings, as well as the feature Dulux Domino joinery.
Dulux Domino was also selected for the Kitchen base joinery to perfectly complement the client's amazing red Falcon oven. Another main element in the Kitchen is the island bench, in Caesarstone Calacatta Nuvo. The waterfall end highlights this gorgeous stone so that it is visible from the Living and Dining area.
The bold matt black tapware in the Bathrooms was softened through the use curved forms in the shaving cabinets, basins, bathtubs and the tapware itself. This softness was enhanced by the texture of the stone-look tile, which we selected for the floors as well as floor to ceiling on the walls for a luxurious feel.
Through a careful consideration of materials and finishes, we were able to achieve a home that is both bold and timeless.
