This foyer rotunda comes to life with a hand-painted ceiling edged in a band of specially-commissioned blown glass, creating a kaleidoscope of vibrant hues. The Italian travertine flooring with gold veining initiates in the foyer. An accent back of Jerusalem Gold travertine, augmented with another band of charcoal glass-tile inserts, mimics the oval architecture of the space.
Plank walls of bleached wood and sleek, white cabinetry creates a bathroom that fits beautifully within the sleek, modern architecture of this Switzerland home. The house, designed by architect Milan Jacopo Mascheroni, features glass exterior walls and a curving design that's echoed in this rooms oval sinks.
The goal was to give the home a worldly and globally inspired feel so new custom designs, textural fabrics and finishes were incorporated along with Asian and African artifacts and antiques. Habachy Designs imagined the occupants of this home as well-traveled, and the objects in the home were artifacts and cherished tokens of their trips around the world.
The area rug, as well as the lounge chairs, are custom pieces designed by Habachy Designs. The great room was an expansive, extended oval, and it posed a challenge as to how to divide the room into separate living spaces. In order to emphasize the curvature of the architecture, Habachy Designs mimicked the shape in the tone-on-tone rug. This allowed for a focal area and living space to be created that would be harmonious with the entirety of the great room.
