Three Rooms Sydney have welcomed interior stylist and furniture designer, Sarah Ellison, to their European-inspired apartment accommodation experience in Potts Point.
III Rooms Sydney combines European style apartments with discreet urban living. Sarah, Cult Design and MCM House, have each curated their own luxury apartment to accommodate even the most discerning guest. Located within an iconic heritage building on the corner of Macleay Street and Challis Avenue, the building was formerly owned by the Hemmes family and recently purchased by Potts Point local Tony Benjamin.
The concept was conceived by him and Chrissi James, who were inspired by the iconic 3 Rooms Paris – self contained accommodation curated by fashion designer Azzedine Alaia as well as The Apartment by the Line in New York and Los Angeles. Their aim is to offer a special genre of accommodation for those who appreciate the unique and perfectly imperfect detail, akin to living in an apartment in Paris or Milan.
From $650 per night, each light-filled apartment features high ceilings, original artworks, luxurious furniture and unique architectural characteristics. The interiors exude style, personality and a few design surprises to delight guests, who can even shop the look and order their favourite elements for their own home.
The newest addition, Sarah has brought her “warm-minimalist” approach with a relaxed luxury feel which her brand is well known for. The design is informed by the location, a contemporary take on an Art Deco style, playing with the history and architectural significance of the building.
On the walls, Sarah has chosen a selection of black and white photography by Akila Berjaoui and canvas art by Saxon Quinn whilst integrating The Visuals’ metal sculptural pieces throughout the rooms and layering different tonal textures and materials. There is an obvious lean towards a more decorative, feminine vibe whilst being experimental and fun, with earthy toned rugs by Armadillo & Co.
Just beyond their apartment’s front door, guests can join the kaleidoscope of life and energy that being in the heart of Potts Point brings, moments away from Sydney’s best restaurants, new favourite French Bistrot916, the iconic Italian Fratelli Paradiso, sophisticated wine bars, stylish boutiques and bohemian coffee shops.
This hotel alternative in the perfect location, allows guests to try the latest furniture designs before they buy.
