East House | Grand Victorian house in Sidney
Luxury East House by the Interior Designer Brendan Wong Design is the perfect Victorian house design inspiration for the upcoming season. A summer design inspiration where neutral colors thrive and the green emerald, from a Limited Edition concept by Boca do Lobo, gives life to the entire ambiance.
Built around 1891, the exquisite and classic exterior features were essentially intact: fine cast-iron lacework to verandahs, intricate eaves supports, central arched entrance, and a tower that would once have led to a widow’s walk.
“They wanted modern elegance with warmth, but not too uptight,” says Brendan. “The intention was to create a strong first impression. Then, they wanted the finest details, new textures and finishes to be revealed gradually, rather than be completely obvious.”
“The intention was to create a strong first impression. Then, they wanted the finer details, new textures and finishes to be revealed gradually, rather than be completely obvious.” Boca do Lobo’s Diamond Emerald Sideboard inthe wide entrance hallway does fits perfectly in demands of the designer. Its sculptural, faceted shape defies convention, and the mirror-like reflective finish against the black Japan floorboards, original cedar staircase and traditional semi-circular archway is a bold surprise and sets the tone for the connecting rooms. There is a wonderful dialogue between the traditional and contemporary style.
Silk rugs in the Living and Dining room are a classic element, while velvet upholstery and a shagreen coffee table provide a luxury touch. Custom-made contemporary mirrors over the original mantelpieces are intentionally edgy and, like a piece of art, lift and lighten the mood of both environments.
Just right above of this creative ambiance design lovers can find a sizable master bedroom that breaths a quiet relaxing outlook. The chaise designed by Brendan provides the perfect spot for the owners to sit and enjoy the wonderful light that floods the room. It is furnished for comfort with a classic sensibility. The graduated drapery complemented by wallpaper with microdots, creates a stippled effect.
Interior designer Brendan Wong has more than 20 years of experience in the art of creating stunning designs and exclusive interiors.
With the style of a precious jewel, the new Diamond sideboard, colored in green emerald, will make a splash in interior design since it is one of the hottest color trends for 2013. Like the amethyst Diamond, the new sideboard also features three highly sculptured doors leading to a gold leaf interior with shelving and two drawers. The exterior of this fanciful piece is now presented in silver leaf finished with a luxurious shade of translucent green emerald with high gloss varnish. And instead of the whimsical lion’s head feet, the new diamond presents a base made from mahogany lined with bronze mirror.
