Here are some things I’m LOVING in interiors right now: grey, marble, gold accessories, leather and custom joinery that lets you hide everything away. Now check out this recent Greg Natale project. Isn’t it divine? I’m not the only one to think so. It’s one of two of his jobs to be shortlisted in the residential decoration category of the IDEA Awards.
Based around its impressive harbour view, this Elizabeth Bay apartment has enough natural light to be able to indulge in a dark and moody palette. Black oak joinery, charcoal stucco walls, grey Basaltina stone floors and black leather are punctuated with crisp white elements. The joinery is both functional for storage and helps define the different living spaces, as do the unusual ceilings.
The Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) is Australia’s largest and most successful independent design awards program. Launched by (Inside) magazine in 2003, the program celebrates the best of Australian interior and product design across 11 categories and five special awards. Greg’s Astor Apartment is also shortlisted in the residential decoration category. Winners are announced in November.
Not many homes could get away with such a dark scheme but with floor to ceiling windows and a luxurious amount of daylight, this really works. Mirrors and reflective brass accessories also add bright touches. While everything else is in shades of grey and black, white makes a real impact on the stunning ceilings and highlights the beautiful lighting choices.
Statement artwork adds texture and colour and the blue chair brings a welcome pop of colour to the bedroom. The bed is full of texture and pattern and I love the mirror behind it.
Just look at that view!
And I love this dark bathroom, so different!
Another beautiful project, Greg. Thank you for sharing it first online with Interiors Addict readers.
