The substantial renovation of a late 1920s apartment in Sydney’s Potts Point by TFAD reveals a stunning mix of the old and the new, underpinned by a rich palette of colours, materials and layered textures.

The walls are painted in a medley of warm greys and charcoals, with a dramatically dark Tongue & Groove solid engineered European oak timber floor in the Penza colour set in a Herringbone Parquetry pattern.

This striking backdrop sets the tone for the interior fit-out and is complemented by the dark grey stone patterned with white veining used for the kitchen benchtop and splashback. In contrast, statement artwork and playful furnishings add vibrant pops of colour and a sense of fun to the living spaces.

The aged, dark Penza colour of the floorboards has warm mid- to dark-brown tones. Combined with an Classic Grade textured finish, these hues enhance the signature grain of the European oak, bringing a natural beauty to the interior palette.

The unique, oversized Herringbone Parquetry is a modern play on a traditional design, referencing the elegant 1920’s heritage of the apartment. These generous boards create the appearance of a more spacious interior and are key in creating a warm and welcoming home with a sophisticated style.
