Glamour in the City

What happens when regular apartment living collides with a modern inspired design aesthetic – change change, change. The new owners of this inner city apartment in much sought after Parnell, New Zealand, took drastic structural action before finding an interior design scheme that perfectly complements their eclectic collection of old and new furnishings.

Lesley Bros Interiors was engaged to furnish the family and formal spaces, each with their own distinct function and aesthetic, while complementing each other to create a sense of harmony. Walls between the living spaces were removed to create a large, light filled open plan living area, encompassing kitchen, dining, family and formal living.
