The 4,000 square-foot penthouse apartment is an absolute interior design treasure in the high-class Australian suburb of Toorak, in Melbourne.
On a trip to the city of lights, Greg Natale, the worldwide famous interior designer, found inspiration in the Parisian arches and swaths of maroon.
The clients are jewelry designers and wanted their personality and passion to e presented in the project. Contrasting, the space for the residence was originally clean and minimalistic, which is the absolute opposite of the owner’s style, but the perfect starting point for a creative mind.
This interior design is a loyal example of Greg Natale’s amazing work, resulting in an unequal project that embraces an 80s glamour style, with a luxury contemporary style, that satisfied the demanding clients, without compromising the designer’s signature.
Besides the unusual, exotic, and exclusive combination of tones, this project has a curated selection of amazing pieces from different exclusive brands, transforming this penthouse almost into a design museum. For example, Greg Natale combined some of Jonathan Adler’s furniture, that the couple already had, with some more contemporary brands such as Boca do Lobo’s Fortuna Dining Table, which takes the stage’s center in the dining room, illuminated by a Kelly Wearstler’s suspension light and above Greg Natale’s art deco rug. The final result of this room strongly relays the love of luxury and glamour, for the owners, but also for the interior designer.
The Lapiaz Sideboard originates from one of Boca do Lobo’s iconic design pieces. Based on the same aesthetic that created a legacy, the Lapiaz Sideboard takes exceptional craftsmanship and design to a new realm. Consisting of two individual modules, the Lapiaz is finished in polished stainless steel that portrays a perfect mirror, with a poplar root wood veneer interior.
