With this gallery, we aim to put a spotlight on the fresh contemporary redesign of an apartment in the South Yarra suburb of Melbourne, Australia, by Canny.
Located in an enviable neighborhood, this out-dated apartment offered a challenge to talented design specialist Janine Carter, in the form of a complete interior redesign.
The 1980s reminiscent cream hues throughout the home were the first aspect to go.
The herringbone cherry wood parquet floor was retained, yet given a fresh face and complete new feel. Dark, visually limiting features were stripped, while three small bedrooms became two, allowing for a luxurious grand master en suite and timber walk-in closet.
The newly crisp, minimalist lines are complemented by brand new bath fixtures.
Dominating the center of the living space, a custom fireplace resting within the slightly shimmered finish of a polished plaster slab, provides both a definitive “wow” factor and stylishly aids in the separation of spaces.
The kitchen, a stark white space shot through with black details and large scale granite countertop and backsplash, handily conveys the modern feel of the renovation. Parquet floors zig-zag throughout in soft natural wood hues.
Highlighted with stainless steel appliances and dark wood corner shelving, the kitchen also hosts a full height built-in wine rack with glass door.
The main countertop and backsplash share a bold, white and black granite slab that highlights the minimalist white nature of the kitchen, contrasting with the clean lines.
The granite countertop and sink with black faucet stand below a trio of black stemmed, white shade pendant lamps. The custom open fireplace can be seen in background at right.
The master bath hosts a high contrast mixture of tones, with black tiled wall over off-white large format beige floor tiling, plus white pedestal tub and vessel sinks. The floating black vanity hangs next to a large glass enclosed shower.
The bathtub stands in a private cove centered on a backlit smoked glass wall, making an ethereal glow in the space.
A second bathroom, awash in grey tile from floor to ceiling, features an open design shower and floating white vanity. Wall-mounted chrome faucet and frameless mirror add sparkling detail.
The master bedroom en suite holds this unique wall detail, with built-in dark wood shelving on white walls, designed to flank the bed. To the left, we see an opening toward the grand walk-in closet.
The dark stained timber walk-in closet hosts an array of storage options in various configurations. Inner lighting and minimalist hardware complete the bespoke design.
Here’s another elaborate storage space, outside the main open area of the home. A pair of window-equipped pocket doors in dark timber open to reveal shelving mirroring that in the master walk-in closet.
