At first glance, the Azalea House appears to have a conventional, neutral color palette throughout the interior. Further research reveals a lot more than the gray walls and white floors with purple accents as visual highlights that catch the eye. FADD Studio designed the project for clients who longed for a unique design that bordered on avant-garde. With that in mind, they incorporated deep red doors inspired by the type found on an English telephone booth. This bold start to the plan spawned other unusual ideas, such as the massive tribal pottery that sits near the front door. The two sculptures are more than just decorative, they disguise a column that had to stay.
A bold staircase begins on a stepped platform that goes from black to oak to white to red and then leads to floating oak boards with black railings that lead to the skylight above.
With the red doors and tribal pottery in place, it was time to design the rest of the house, which featured a color palette of black, white, gray, and red, and oak.
Moooi has furnished the living room with a sofa, two chairs and a coffee table, while in the corner there is a Ligne Roset floor lamp.
A red Antibodi armchair by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso gives this mostly white room color.
The two daughters each got a bedroom and bathroom with their own color preferences.
