LjHabitat Edition 24
The ground floor features onyx-like slab marble flooring in the hallway and main reception areas, banded in a contrasting maroon imperial framing stone. It is a strong feature that suits this impressive entranceway and sets the tone for rest of the house. As soon as you open the front door there is a sense of the grandeur that lies within. The client loves strong, impactful design and as a nod to this, Blanca has used contrast in the home’s
colour schemes. This is evident throughout the home — in the banded hallways flooring and the black faux lizard bar with its contrasting white composite top. It is also shown in the master bathroom, which features beautiful limestone flooring and walls that strongly contrast with the leather matrix shower area, punctuated with grey mother- of-pearl apertures. There is a hint of Art Deco influence in areas of the home, such as the polished
macassar ebony furniture in the drawing room and the graphic staircase balustrade with its polished nickel handrail — imported especially for the project from the US. The internal door handles used throughout the residence also echo this era and make up one of Blanca’s favourite design elements. With their strong Art Deco influence, the heavy handles have a softly curved and ridged design and represent the quality of every element of the project, down to each detail.
