Lily Pad

A landmark Robin Boyd apartment in South Yarra and a simple brief – the client wanted the interior to reference a lily.

Green is the major colour for the finishes palette. The interior is grounded by a deep green carpet with fresh white paint for the walls.

The apartment was stripped bare, updated services were added and then we layered custom joinery, lighting, a bathroom and kitchen and all new furniture into this space. A classic Knoll sofa, upholstered in green wool herringbone fabric and an Arne Jacobsen Swan chair in rich purple add drama to the main space.
