Melbourne is a city that offers luxury apartments in prestigious Southside neighbourhoods. These apartments are found along elegant, tree-lined streets like St. Kilda Road and they derive architectural inspiration from European cities like Italy and France.
Melburnians, like Europeans, believe in a high quality of life and enjoying plenty of access to the mild outdoor environment. That’s precisely why The New Charsfield on St. Kilda Road is the perfect example of Melbourne’s luxury apartments.
What is it about European design that so nicely lends itself to luxury apartments? In this post, we’ll go over aspects of European architecture and design that translate into luxurious and intuitive living spaces.
When you think of European homes, you think of sunny Spanish villas and light-filled French sitting rooms. European design has embraced the role that big, luxurious windows play in your daily life. Not only do floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of natural light, but they also add a lovely design element to your home, providing you with endless views of the city around you.
Combining this idea with a modern simplicity and focus on function over form gives you design options like panoramic windows. Having panoramic views from your bedroom or living room can completely change the ambience of the space, making the city spread out before you as part of the design.
While we’ve come quite a way from the romantic balconies of Verona, possessing a balcony of your own can still give you a whimsical and dreamy feeling. You at once feel exposed and completely private, in your own world and above it all. You can enjoy watching the sunset with a loved one, or soak in the rays while you read a book and have a glass of wine.
A Proper Living Room
European design has always made room for a proper living area that is separate from the lounge or entertainment room. Europeans tend to divide their spaces based on their functions and do not overlap. Therefore, a living room that displays modern designs and architecture should be focused around a fireplace rather than a television.
A separate lounge room for entertainment gives you the option of going somewhere private and intimate to watch or read something, while your expansive living room is the perfect place to entertain others or to take a break from multimedia.
Adequate Dining Area with Access to Alfresco Space
Food is a large part of European life. Preparing and eating it is not something that is often rushed. Rather, the enjoyment of food is a way for people to bond. Europeans don’t just sit down to eat; they sit down to dine. A luxury apartment designed in the European style should have a designated space to dine. Often, you’ll find that your luxurious dining room has direct access to an alfresco area, contributing to the general ambience that accompanies a nicely implemented indoor-outdoor flow.
At The New Charsfield, a private dining room is available for all residents to reserve for dinner parties and casual gatherings, supported by a full gourmet kitchenette.
Rooms Painted the Right White
Many French homes display their elegance by painting the walls the right shade of white. Avoiding a cold blue-white and going instead for something creamier and warmer, this look allows for clean elegance, but also the freedom to accessorise and add splashes of colour to suit your own personal style.
