OUR EVOCATIVE REFLECTION OF PAST MOODS IS REINTERPRETED FOR OUR CONTEMPORARY LIFESTYLE. THE SCHEME IS BASED ON FLUID LINES CONDUCIVE TO MAXIMIZING COMFORT AND SPACE WHILE THE SOFT FORMS NURTURE THE SENSES AND COLOURS SUBTLY PROVIDE A SANCTUARY.

THE CAREFUL SELECTION OF MATERIALS FROM THE GENEROUS CAESAR RANGE ENABLED US TO EASILY COMPLIMENT THE FURNITURE AND ACCESSORIES SELECTION.

VARIATIONS IN FLOOR AND CEILING LEVELS HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED TO DEFINE SPACE AND ENABLE THE USE OF MULTIPLE SURFACES WITHIN THE LOFT.

IN CREATING OUR REVERB LOFT, WE FIRSTLY EXPLORED THE PAST, THE ICONIC PIECES AND TRENDS. WE INVESTIGATED THE ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF QUINTESSENTIAL LOFTS IDENTIFYING OUR “MUST HAVES” – THE WINDOW STYLE, CEILING CLADDING AND EXPOSED BRICK/BLOCK WORK.

WE DELVED INTO THE 70’S STYLE, OF LAYERING, DETAIL/TEXTURE/OBJECTS, DERIVED FROM VARIED ETHNICITIES. WE IDENTIFIED THE NEED TO “FEEL RISKY” WHILE ALSO BEING NURTURED WITHIN THE ONE SPACE.

OUR SELECTION OF THE SOFT TEXTURES OF ONE INDIGO TO FORM THE BASIS OF THE DESIGN, WAS DRIVEN BY THE NEED TO HAVE THE MAIN FLOORING A GENTLE ACCEPTING SURFACE. IN USING SUCH RICH MATERIALS AS THE VELVET, BRASS AND THE LUXURIOUS POLISHED CAESAR ANIMA & PORTRAIT RANGES WE ARE SEEKING TO ACCENTUATE THE EXTRAVAGANCE AND LUXURY OF A PAST YET NOT FORGOTTEN ERA.

AS WE ENTER THE SPACE UNDER A CANOPY OF THE SCULPTURED TREE THE FLOOR FLOWS UPWARD TO THE CEILING DRAWING YOUR EYES TO THE WONDERFUL NATURAL TONES OF THE CAESAR TIMBER VIBE CEILING. FOR THIS CEILING, WE CHOSE TO USE THE MORE TEXTURES R11 SURFACE, AS THE JUNCTION OF THE FLOATING WALLS JOIN THE CEILING THE LIGHT BOXES HIGHLIGHT THE TEXTURE. WE HAVE CHOSEN THE ICONIC ABORIGINAL ART PIECE TO ENTICE YOU TO THE VISUAL FEAST BEYOND.

OUR WALL TREATMENT OF THE CLASSY SUBTLE LAYERS WARM 01 & 02 IS USED IN PLACE OF PAINT IN MOST AREAS. THE NATURAL YET ELEGANT TONES AND TEXTURES OF THE LINEN SURFACE MAKE IT UNNECESSARY TO CONSIDER THE TRADITIONAL PAINTED OR PAPERED TREATMENTS THUS OPENING THE DOOR TO CONSIDER TILES FOR A GENERAL WALL TREATMENT.

OUR KITCHEN WITH THE POLISHED ANIMA NERO ATLANTE BENCH TO BE WATERJET CUT TO SHAPE AND HAND GILDED CABINETRY IS THE REFINED GLAMOROUS BALANCE TO THE INDUSTRIAL FEEL OF THE ELAPSE SCRAPE BACKSPLASH. THE BACK SPLASH HAS BEEN WARMED BY THE GOLDEN LED WASH. ENHANCED BY GENTLY BRUSHED BRASS FITTINGS AND BESPOKE HANDMADE CROCKERY.

AS WE MOVE TO THE BATHROOM THE BESPOKE HAND MADE BRONZE BASIN RESTS GENTLY ON A GENTLY CURVING PRECAST BLACK CEMENT BENCH. THE SHOWER BASE AND SHOWER POLL IS INCASED IN GOLDEN GLASS AND IS A LUMINOUS BACKDROP TO THE BRUSHED BLACK CHROME FITTINGS. THE SELECTION OF THE POLISHED PORTRAITS STROMBOLI FLOORS AND WALLS GIVE OUR AREA THE STRENGTH THAT ONLY A HISTORIC SICILIAN STONE CAN DELIVER. WITH THE BACK WALL, WE BRING IN OUR ESSENTIAL TEXTURES WITH STROMBOLI WALL DÉCOR SHOWCASING THE VERSATILITY OF THE RANGE AND AGAIN ENABLING US TO PLAY WITH LIGHTING CREATING MOOD. THIS WALL EXTENDS PAST THE BATHROOM TOWARDS THE STUDY ALCOVE.

THE FLOATING WALLS ENCASING THE STUDY AREA CLAD IN FABULA JUNGLE DECOR, USING THIS MATERIAL GAVE US THE OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE A DELIBERATE VISUAL LINK BETWEEN THE SOFT INDIGO FLOOR AND THE TIMBER CEILING.

OUR LOUNGING AREA IS A STRONG REFERENCE BACK TO THE COCKTAIL SIPPING FASHIONABLE & INDULGENT LIFESTYLE OF THE LATTER STAGES OF THE 60’S 70’S IMAGING THE SEAN CONNERY JAMES BOND ERA, JAMES ROMANCING A CO-STAR UNDER THE ROMANTIC RED HUE LIGHTING AND LOUNGING ON LUXURIOUS LEATHER AND VELVET. CLEVERLY WE HAVE DESIGNED BESPOKE LACE COFFEE TABLES TO BE WATER JET CUT FROM THE FABULOUS ANIMA CALACATTA RANGE. THE BACK CURVED FEATURE WALL DESIGNED TO BE A CONNECTION BETWEEN FLOORS & CEILING.

OUR LINKING WALL BETWEEN THE LOFT AND THE OTHER SHOWROOM AREAS IS DESIGNED TO BE A WELCOME OR FAREWELL STATEMENT WITH THE USE OF THE CAESAR TALE VERSO SILVER IN ALL AVAILABLE SURFACES AND SIZES COUPLED WITH THE USE OF LIGHTING AND UNEVEN BOXING COULD BE EASILY IMAGINED AS AN EXTERIOR SURFACE. OUR INDULGENT SEXY BEDROOM IS AN ESCAPE FROM REALITY WITH A CUSTOMIZED COCOON BED DRAPED WITH BUTTONED VELVET FLOATING ON A LUMINESCENT OCEAN OF ANIMA NERO ATLANTE THAT AGAIN EXTENDS THE EYE TO THE CEILING.

THE SOFT CAESAR LAYERS WALLS ADD TO THE AMBIENCE. THE BULK HEADED CEILING IN CAESAR LAYERS WARM 01 IS THE ANCHOR FOR THE AS IT IS IN HEAVEN LIGHT.

IN CREATING OUR VISION FOR THE LOFT OUR JOURNEY TOOK US BACK TO ANOTHER ERA, IT AWAKENED OUR REALIZATION AS TO HOW MUCH OF OUR CURRENT DESIGN AND LIFESTYLE IS A REVERB TO THE PAST.
