Originally constructed in the mid 1980’s, this oversized two bedroom apartment is located in the heart of Sydney’s bustling Bondi Junction. Our client was seeking an eastern suburbs based interior designer to renovate her apartment.
Characterised by it’s extensive garden terrace viewed from full length sliding glass doors in every room, the Bondi apartment was in completely original condition prior to us being selected as the interior designers. Features typical of the era of construction including internal arched doorways, elaborate architraves and ceiling cornices, extensive use of travertine in wet areas, synthetic wall to wall carpeting and a colour scheme of beige upon beige abounded throughout.
We chose a wide board engineered oak timber floor in dramatic midnight black for the living and dining space, entry foyer and kitchen which is beautifully contrasted with a cool white colour scheme throughout. The bathrooms were tiled in a calacatta patterned porcelain tile and all joinery including the kitchen, bathroom and living area cabinets were finished in satin vivid white and topped with Ceasarstone Pure White stone.
A statuario patterned porcelain tile was selected for the splash backs in the kitchen and laundry areas and the colour of the veins in the pattern is a perfect complement to the richness of the timber floor. Along with a full heighted wall of mirrored glass in the entry foyer, these finishes enhance the feeling of internal spaciousness, light reflection and sense of contemporary elegance and simplicity.
Furnishings were selected for their classic and uncomplicated forms, with a particular focus on circular shapes to balance the expansive walls that are evident throughout the apartment and they are complimented by large expanses of texturde sheer curtaining in silvery grey tones.
The final result this redesign is a light, breezy and uncluttered space that communicates a great sense of calm and relaxation at every turn.
