Embling Road residence features a subtle grey palette, with green accents appearing consistently in each space. The client’s favourite colour is green, reflected in the rugs and furnishings, such as the custom made floor rug in the living room and the velvet Tufty-Too sofa by Patricia Urquiola. Perhaps most strikingly, Lou worked with the client to select green stone in the powder room. Colour doesn’t stop here – you’ll find blush pink tiles in the kid’s bathroom, and the basement set out in a blue theme, with a kitchenette and custom billiard table.
The kitchen follows a subdued scheme with shades of grey in the joinery, the natural stone and the HAY Revolver barstools. Aged brass fittings and fixtures bring warmth to these cool tones, while Lou says the materials balance light and dark, “so everything wasn’t all sparkly and shiny.”
