Through stripping away superfluous details and implementing a colour palette of white, black and grey, the home’s true character is revealed. Careful consideration was given by Carole Whiting as to how the interior features would speak to the home’s structural language; lighting features in primary shapes are rendered in stark white, while black paint is used on walls to provide a bold backdrop for artwork to shine, and again in recesses to highlight depth.
It could be easy for such a monochrome approach to strip the home of its tactility and soul, but timber flooring provides a soft and consistent warmth. Timber is also used alongside marble to deliver natural texture to the interior, particularly in the kitchen, where an oversized Elba marble and timber island bench offers a sense of scale and occasion to an otherwise compact yet functional space. In the master bathroom, a compact, matte-white Vieques bathtub with utilitarian-like grooves offsets sleek black fixtures and glossy white tiles.
