Cape Shank Residence

The Brief

Texan Style opulence for a Swiss-Australian retired business man was a theme that resonated throughout this newly built house. Furniture and Furnishings had to be of the highest quality, it had to be individual and elegance of a country residence.

The Solution

Custom designed & built furniture, rich textures and understated opulence. Source unusual sculptures and Art work.

Tremayne Salon

The Brief

To create Hollywood in Toorak. Silver white and Royal blue was required to create an upmarket Hair Salon of distinction.

The Solution

Silver and white Sheer Curtains lining of walls to create absolute Luxury. Padded panels grace the superb Staircase leading up to the ‘Chambre Separer’ section of this fabulous Salon. More padded Panels adorn the Balustrades of the mezzanine floor.

Neutrals with a Difference

The Brief

A palette of warm neutral tones featuring beige and cream, with black and yellow interspersed was the client’s wish list. This house was the perfect blank canvas to harness the owners’ individual style.

The Solution

For the entrance foyer of the house, Mimi and her client created an impact using a feature wall with a bright painting, and glass vases for a chic finish. The entrance foyer immediately set the tone for the rest of the house – cosy, inviting and impeccably designed.

Sheer Opulence

The Brief

Mimi’s client favoured basic colours – black, brown, beige and cream – but wanted them used to create a highly luxurious American-style look.

The Solution

Staying true to the American theme, Mimi custom designed large pieces of furniture and drew influences from a few styles. Because the open plan flowed throughout the hallway, dining and living areas, she designed three distinct rugs giving each room a point of difference. For instance, the leopard print rug in the living room matched the gilded Louis-inspired chairs that Mimi created.

Formal Elegance

The Brief

Rich gold tones were the client’s pre-requisite, to create living spaces that were elegant, formal and ornate.

The Solution

To avoid a gaudy look, Mimi decided on complementary elements, such as a refreshing off-white sofa that instantly lightens the living room. As the client is a fan of Versace, Mimi imported the brand’s fabric to make the cushion covers. To maintain a stylish note, the glass coffee table top was paired with gilded legs, while Mimi’s custom designed rug featuring an emblem, imparted a regal touch. A glistening marble wall added another level of dimension to the room.
