Working on this North Fremantle apartment certainly had its challenges. My client spends so much time travelling with work and is not in town often at all. I ended up taking a lot of pictures of furniture and art. I then sent them via the internet and waited for his reply.
The Living and Dining Room
The client wanted the open plan lounge and dining room to be modern and comfortable. I love the Breda chair and ottoman. It is by Punt Mobles and is available from Mobilia. It took a little while to find the right coffee table. I wanted to make a contrast between the modern oaks and bring in the industrial influence from the Fremantle ports. This coffee table has a zinc surface and iron legs and castors. The dining chairs are by Inclass and are available from Mobilia.
You can just catch a glimpse of the view from the balcony here. It really is quite special watching the ships come and go from far away places. These tables are by Kettal and are available from Mobilia. The concrete geometric shapes on tables are by Bec Tougas. I love as many plants as possible in interiors at the moment. It instantly adds life to the space. The art is by a NY street artist and was a gift from family.
The kitchen is a great place for cooking and entertaining. The stools are the Tao by Inclass. They are available from Mobilia.
The Entrance and one of my favourite areas of the apartment.
The side board was the first major purchase for this apartment. It is the Tactile by Punt Mobles and is available from Mobilia in Claremont. I found the vintage travel agents cruise ship on a buying trip to Melbourne. It is from one of the coolest stores Tarlo & Graham. The ship lights up too. The client found the Airport diagrams on Ebay. I had these framed at Preservation Framers.
The Maritime is one of my all time favourite chairs. I had been waiting for the right interior to show case it’s beauty. It is shaped like the hull of a ship and is perfect in this North Fremantle apartment. It is by Casa Mania and is from District. The art above the chair is by Ruth Ander and is from Columbia Road Gallery in London.
The art above the fireplace is by Hannah Ludnow. The painting is one of three that I purchased for my client in London at Columbia Road Gallery. It made for some interesting conversations taking the large scale painting through customs at Heathrow. The antique ship pulleys were sourced locally at Yachts Grotto in Fremantle.
The He Said, She Said black chair is by Matiazzi and the Key Side Table is by One Nordic Design. They are both available from District.
The Master Bedroom
My client requested a grown up bedroom. I set about getting quality goose down donnas and pillows and high thread count bedlinen. I believe it makes all the difference when you invest in good bedding. The artwork in the bedroom is by Space Craft. I was instantly attracted to the tall ship and colour of the screen print. I originally saw it above the fireplace but it was too large. I now think it is perfect in the bedroom. If any one doesn’t know Space Craft they are a Melbourne based company who specialise in Textile screen printing and are available in Perth at Empire. The industrial side tables are by Empire. The angle poise lamps were a great find at Ikea. I went back to get one for my home the next day and they were all sold out.
The Spare Bedroom.
The chair is the Osso by Mattiazzi and available from District. The painting is another by Hannah Ludnow. She has a gallery in East London. Columbia Road Galleries. Her paintings are usually of Cornwall and I love the texture and colour in her paintings. I found the Fremantle tea chest lid beside the road well before I started this interiors project. It sits right at home in the spare bedroom now.
