Is a designer’s house ever finished? For Donna Jones of The Design Option her current home is an ongoing love affair with architecture and a beautifully curated collection of art, embellishments and interior style selections.
Her Kohimarama home incorporates signature design elements from renowned architect Ron Sang such as the statement front door and grand spaces. The expansive views are enhanced with vast walls of glass and mirror. In modernising the home from its bold red and lilac beginnings, Donna saw the potential of the home, and wanted to ensure she accentuated the architects intended design features while incorporating her own distinct style.
Almost at its completion, the renovated home boasts strong contrasts between light and dark, and uses lush fabrics and layers to soften the edges of the buildings structure.
To fit with her modern vision for her home Donna chose PDL Iconic™ in Anthracite for her switches and sockets. “I love the soft lines, low profile and rounded corners. It gives almost a negative detail with the anthracite not going all the way around the edge”. Donna chose Anthracite on light, bright walls to use the strong contrast in colour as a feature of the design.
