This subtle ‘gesture’ continues upstairs, where architect Ben Vitale has cleverly made room for a master bedroom, ensuite, walk-in robe and private home office. Suddenly elevated, Sarah-Jane likens this upstairs retreat to a serene oasis, where your eye line is met with sky and treetops. Where a feast of colours and patterns reigns supreme downstairs, upstairs sees a more sober and sophisticated colour scheme of soft greys, burnt terracotta, and navy blue come to the fore. Linear wall cladding, a classic freestanding bath and traditional fixtures throughout the master ensuite and robe tastefully balance the old with the new.
