Interior Design & Art Curation

Madison Point Apartment

The second incarnation of this stunning, never to be built out, one-apartment-per-floor holiday home was completed for repeat clients who live in Melbourne.

Bette Watson designed its original interior, with Janelle as her Assistant Designer, when the clients purchased it off-plan from the developers. The brief was to lighten up the original, dramatic high gloss colour palette to a classic gallery style. The walls were painted a crisp white to highlight the client’s wonderful art collection.

This second renovation and scope of works included complete demolition of the existing kitchen and bathrooms, which originated from the developer, 1980s spa bath included.

The kitchen was opened up to the dining/living space, and a stunning slab of Black Marquina marble was installed on the newly constructed island bench. A balcony was also closed in to extend the kitchen and casual dining area from its original footprint.

A bank of custom-made glass panelled bifold windows were installed between the ensuite and the old balcony area allowing for a stunning beach/ocean view from within the ensuite when soaking in the new bathtub.

Large format terrazzo tiles were laid on bathroom and ensuite floors to coordinate with clean white wall tiles and highlight mosaics by Bisazza.

The old lime-washed parquetry and wall-to-wall carpets were replaced with new wide-format spotted gum timber throughout to consolidate the space.

New pieces of furniture, including a dining table, chairs and bar stools by B&B ITALIA and the iconic orange leather Vanity Fair armchair by Poltrona Frau, were purchased to coordinate with existing furnishings and artefacts. New soft furnishings and custom-made automatic curtains were installed throughout to further update and soften the original interior. A bespoke linen custom-panelled upholstered wall was added to the master bedroom.

A sophisticated and classically timeless aesthetic was achieved. The main focus was to showcase a colourful and textured collection of Australian contemporary paintings by artists including Tim Maguire and Aida Tomescu.
