The melding of classical details, rustic elements and contemporary styling.
A design development for a Palladian styled home in Wexford at the vanguard of contemporary design.
A dark and seductive environment brought to light through the use of natural elements of stone and wood.
The open plan bathroom with views is finished with a wonderfully stratified calacatta marble for the flooring and carved dual sink area.
The free standing bath centre to the room by V&A. A brash and contemporary minimalist bath faucet by Hansgrohe acts as a step towards the minimalist refined divisional element and headboard of the master bedroom.
Combining the elements: The Ceiling and columns were stripped back and re-rendered in a smooth micro – cement with subtle marbling.
Electrical: The design features classical lighting designs and complimentary light switches, plugs and fittings finished in a tarnished copper fleck steel.
Furniture comes in several forms: Mid century & contemporary modern – blending pieces of interest for their form and uniqueness. Notably, the tub chair and window seat compliments the curvature of the Palladian styled windows. The sofa as the segway between the curve and the form of line.
A favorite design element was the reclamation and restoration of the wood ceiling cornice, dado rail and skirting – bringing the warm tones of the raw wood out to play.
The use of the Cole & Son wallpaper below the Dado rail further adds interest and compliment to the overall design – a bridge that encompasses and encloses the entire scheme.
Michael Ó Mara interior design offer a refreshing, unique, considered and understated design solution to this classical room setting.
