The owner of this Southbank riverside apartment, Marlene, is a woman who appreciates the flair of John Croft Design, having already utilised his considerable skill to decorate several other properties with his signature style. With the assistance of John Croft senior designer, Kylie Mann, John soon transformed the property from a dark, drab space into a bright, sunny explosion of colour deserving of this stunning space overlooking the Brisbane River and city views. They integrated reupholstered furniture from Marlene’s previous home with gorgeous new pieces using the colourful fabrics of Designers Guild, creating a harmonious colour scape of lime and fuchsia, brilliantly anchored by the custom made woollen rug in the sitting room.
As a mother of 6, Marlene’s new home needed to accommodate family visiting from interstate as well as an office area, which John and Kylie cleverly incorporated into the master bedroom, to allow privacy as needed. The large 4 bedroom apartment includes a large formal 8 seat timber dining table with white chairs upholstered in a striking fabric from Designers Guild, lending a modern feel to the space. The balcony boasts several outdoor sitting areas for enjoying the stunning views while entertaining her extended family in style.
