At MWa, we are constantly feeding our appreciation of fine design by looking for new aesthetics for residential interior design.
1 PORCELAIN: Porcelain is changing the asthetics of interiors
From textures and colours, to its thinness, large format porcelain sheets are being used as flooring, walling, benchtops and any other surface including cabinetry. It’s unique, moving on from replicating the look of other materials such as marble, granite or timber, and coming into its own. See the beautiful new aesthetic on display at the Artedomus showroom in Roseberry, Sydney. Streamlined kitchen in maximum marmi onyx gold. Image: www.artedomus.com.au
2 WHITE: White is the new black.
We’ve loved bringing a little bit of black back into interiors, as it gives such a punch and drama. But we’ve noticed white is coming – white fixtures such as powdercoated taps by AstraWalker, and white steel doors in powdercoat by Dulux Electro Flat White by Steel Windows Australia . Less contrast, more fresh. Image: www.robmills.com.au / Hot Yoga Studio
3 CURVES: Be lead around the corner.
A curved wall with some texture, you can’t beat it as the way to enter into a space. We’re using this device in a current project, to transition from the old to the new, from one level to the next, from the hallway into the open plan, just down the stairs and follow the curve… Image: www. hecklerguthrie.com / Move Yoga
4 WALLPAPERS: Bold and exotic.
Unlimited in colour and motifs, wallpaper is a seriously delightful way to add character to interiors. We have been lucky enough to have seen some stunning wallpapers installed recently in our Pymble project: in the hallway, in the library, in a dining room and wrapped around huge sliding pantry doors in the kitchen. We have a client who has a stunningly colourful black and white wallpaper with butterflies in colour, in a teenage girl’s bedroom wall (Butterfly Garden). The challenge is choosing!

5 PERFORATED METAL MESH: Breathable joinery.
Why, we’re not sure, but we are seeing more perforated metal mesh being used in interiors, in particular, in joinery. Cupboard fronts – breathable pantry? Also great for robes. Certainly useful for TV joinery so the remote control lasers work without opening the cupboards. Here’s a stunning use of perforated brass mesh.
