Ascot Green is part of a collaborative residential development, overlooking the iconic Eagle Farm Racecourse in Ascot, Brisbane. Having completed an earlier renovation project for her son, Sylvia felt confident that interior designer Kim Black, of Kim Black Design, could help her transition from her traditional 4-bedroom Queenslander to the newly built apartment.
Developing a textured palette was vital to connecting the interior spaces and although the apartment’s ability to accommodate visiting friends and family was important, for the most part Sylvia is the sole inhabitant of her home. “We had such fun with a totally feminine palette. Right from the entry foyer you are greeted with volumes of colour in pinks, reds, and mauves, this is balanced with the more chocolate, earthy tones and textures in the wallpaper in the entry and master bedroom,” says Kim.
