Interior Design Crossing The Line

Interior Design Crossing The Line

During the design phase of a space I often find it can cross the line into full blown art. When I embarked on a client’s high-end home 5 years ago, I had no idea that I would be creating sculptures, installing my own unique art and designing furniture. It has been a wild ride! My clients have been amazing and I must say we have been on quite a journey together.

I walked into their ‘now home’ 5 years ago (before the lock up stage), and I was over-whelmed with the overall space and sheer size of this acreage home. There was a plan which had a great layout, although it didn’t really go beyond that. There were 2 kitchens to design, a bar area, a theatre, walk-in robe and office space and this was just the cabinetry. After finally getting doors on the place, tiles on the floor and a butlers kitchen in, the family got to start using their space. Although we were nowhere near done and we hadn’t even embarked on the exterior.

It has been a true master piece room by room, piece by piece we have slowly manifested rooms into works of art. I plan to slowly unravel this monumental beauty of the next couple of months but let me first take you down the journey of a simple bedroom wall. When my client mentioned red and mirror in the same sentence I had anxiety but I soon got to work and created a true work of art. Their 3 metre high x 6 metre wide wall with hidden entry ways and side tables was a mathematical anomaly. We had to allow for a european king bed, 2 door ways, power outlets, inbuilt lighting and switches along with bedside tables. It was all trial and no room for error.

Happy Tweaqing.
