Jillian Dinkel Design has set the bar high with her newest harbourside project, Manly Apartment.
Situated in prime Sydney real estate, this stunning seaside apartment has been completely transformed by the team over at Jillian Dinkel Design. The designers have effortlessly captured the vision of the client and created a home that allows the beauty of its surrounds to be complimented and in sync with each other.
With unparalleled views of the spectacular Sydney Harbour, having an interior that complimented the location was a must for the homeowners. The designers knew just the right amount of restraint yet precise detail that needed to go into transforming this home to ensure it’s views and surroundings were applauded. To achieve this, they knocked down walls to create a more open plan style of kitchen and living areas, and subdivided the main bedroom to allow for a walk-in robe and better use of space.
Functionality was a large factor when redesigning the homes interior. The small guest bedroom needed to act as both a space for when the client’s guests or children visit and also a home office. The designers cleverly disguised a wall bed made from custom cabinetry that meant that space can act as both a bedroom and a study interchangeably. “The guest bedroom, a practice in small space planning, is a little jewel with its petite size but sophisticated palette’, Jillian Dinkel Design tell us.
At the request of the design-shy clients, a simple and refined palette was chosen. White-on-white cabinetry was used for the kitchen to create a fresh and open aesthetic and allowed the spectacular harbourside views be the focal point. The darker toned timber flooring and natural stone patterned tiles in the bathroom offered a warm and organic ambience. The bespoke touch of brushed brass seen on the cabinetry handles, tapware and various styling items add a touch of luxury and colour to this white oasis.
Jillian Dinkel Design prove that downsizing doesn’t have to be boring; in fact, we’d say this home proves the opposite! A simple yet sophisticated palette combined with picturesque harbourside views make for a home that the clients may find very hard to leave each day.
