Colour is subtly threaded through the building fabric and decorative elements of this house to provide a continuum between old and new, and from space to space. Period colours are used in a bold and contemporary manner, referencing the past in selection but speaking to the future in execution and delivery. White skirting is used as a connecting device between old and new. White flooring across a variety of materials provides a strong, consistent base through all spaces, again connecting old to new. Both warmth and freshness is injected into the interior through sophisticated selection and application of colour. A thoughtful and considered use of colour in this residence contributes to the definition and legibility of this highly detailed residence.
