Creating a city-sleek home on the top floor of an old Melbourne apartment was a tour de force for innovative architect Steven Whiting and his imaginative clients. After quite a strenuous renovation, this less-than-desirable flat was transformed into an enviable space where the interplay of textures give it the sense of warmth the owners were aiming for. I'm glad they opted for an open-floor layout as this unifies the living, dining and kitchen areas into one ample space. The color scheme—my favorite palette ever—is a calm mix of black, white and gray with the perfect touch of wood accents like the Mark Tuckey 'Tripod' dining table. Simply divine!
