The-Feminine-Touch-Sibella-Court-Hotel-Palisade

Inspiration:Hotel Palisade

In 2010, fresh off the boat from Sydney, my then boyfriend (now husband) put me to task to add a feminine touch to his 10 years of living in Singapore as a road warrior bachelor. I was very clear with what I wanted to do with his modern 2-bedroom Robertson Quay blank canvas. I had no intention of taking it from monochrome man cave to princess parlour in a matter of days (or ever really). This was going to be a gradual process, just like our courtship, taking us him from mismatched to a united front he would be proud of (requiring plenty of secret shopping missions).

When I think back to this process and the result, it reminds me of the recently renovated boutique hotel Hotel Palisade in the Miller Point, Sydney. The gentrification of a historical landmark with huge potential. The result… the impeccable work of talented interior designer Sibella Court, who has so tastefully transformed a dilapidated masculine space by adding Australian-made products embossed with her feminine way of mixing layers, colour, shapes and materials.

While I do not have the styling skills of the team at The Society Inc., we had a similar desire; to create a welcoming and calming space of past meets present through a muted colour palette and products that were either found, foraged or recycled.
