GIPPS RESIDENCE

The influence for this Primary Suite was the Brazilian jungle. One half of this client pairing is Brazilian, so we wanted to pay homage to their native country. We also wanted to create a holiday feel within this Suite, exuding luxury every day. Birdblack Design specified big and bold patterns, and nothing was off-limits for this couple. The wallpaper is the feature and drives the intention for all the colours and finishes throughout the Primary Suite: the Ensuite and the Walk-in Robe.

From a layout perspective, the original Primary Bedroom was large and unutilised. With this wasted space, we created a Walk-in Robe, which houses all the hanging and drawers for their clothing. The Ensuite was enlarged, and their previous Robe Closet has been redesigned as a Shoe Closet for all their designer shoes to be on display and within easy access in the mornings and evenings.

The flooring in the Ensuite represents the mosaic that is so common in Brazilian architecture. The black and white basket weave tile provides a wonderful juxtaposition between the bold greens and yellows of the surrounding spaces. Zellige tiles cover the walls, allowing the light to dance across the tiles and provide a textural element.

In the Walk-in Robe, there are plenty of drawers, half-hanging and full-hanging spaces, and an open shelving unit that is perfect for displaying bags and purses.
