Artisanal and sculpted vignettes are underpinned by space expanding elements, including high-voltage marble veins connecting zones.

Avid art collectors, the owners stipulated that colour schemes should complement their pieces. Tangy tangerine, salmon and plum shades dotted with varying depths of the harbour’s marine blue are anchored by stronger tones in the adjoining rooms. Candy-pink kitchen tapware and lampshades in the guestbedroom add spirited pops.

Circus-like frivolity is conveyed with elegant strength via eclectic patterns and motifs.

Embracing the owners’ intrepid travel instincts, international references abound, most notably within the master suite. Inspired by ancient Chinese folding screens, the ceiling’s hand-painted walnut timber batten bracing subtly nods to their framing device. Unfurling around its centrifuge, a waterscape of lilies and pond ripples expand the room’s depth. Brass cattle horn handles on the bedhead’s integrated joinery beneath add further exotic flair.
