SUMMER 
Adding a hint of burnt orange and lilac to your Marsala scheme can create a more summery palette. Try a statement piece of art with flecks of Marsala tones and gold foil [1]. A feature wall in a brighter shade can emphasise a bold look [2]. Or take your love of Marsala to the beach with a gorgeous Missoni beach towel [3].

AUTUMN
Create a nostalgic touch to your interior with delicate chinoiserie patterns paired beautifully with rustic oak. Your choice of flooring treatment will influence the overall feel of your home. For understated luxe go for a classic parquet flooring with contrasting inset stone [4]. For a bolder, more contemporary look try a large patterned rug in soft ivory and deep Marsala [5].

WINTER
Stay cozy with soft upholstery this Winter. Have an old armchair that needs updating? Inject some colour and texture and have it re-upholstered with this suede-like velvet [6]. For a plush bedhead solution, have a custom bedhead made with luxurious button detailing. If it is a small accent you're after, add oversized cushions to your living room in a buttery soft leather [7].

SPRING
Brighten up your Marsala palette with touches of salmon pink tones. Sangria' from Porters paints [8] is the perfect solution if you can’t commit to dark and moody Marsala walls. Keep your palette neutral with splashes of exciting prints. Try an oversized floral wallpaper for something more feminine, or frame your favourite fabric to create a one of a kind artwork [9].

Alexandra Kidd Design Interpretation of Kelly Hoppen Interiors

A few months ago, we started working on a Penthouse in Redfern for one of our clients. Her brief to us was that she wanted a Kelly Hoppen inspired interior. For those who are unfamiliar with Kelly Hoppen, she is an interior designer based in the UK who has had a history of designing apartments for celebrities, working with residential and commercial buildings, airlines and yacht interiors, as well as a range of products for the home, fashion and technology. Alexandra Kidd accepted the brief and has begun working on the project to make a beautiful home that will become an Alexandra Kidd Design interpretation of an existing interior style. The use of luxurious fabrics, elegant furniture and classic finishes have been at the forefront of the creative inspiration for this project.

We are working with the great team of builders from Profile Property Group and the building work is in its last stages of completion. The statement Herringbone black floors are about to go in and we wanted to share the construction progress with you so far.

For more images, you can visit our photo gallery and keep and eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates on our projects. We look forward to sharing this beautiful Redfern Penthouse project with you as it progresses.
