Art engage Darren Palmer for Mulberry interiors

Today marks the launch of our first residential development within our Soho precinct in Dickson – Mulberry.

Mulberry will be home to 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, all of which will feature interiors designed personally designed by prominent Australian interior designer, Darren Palmer. Mulberry residents will also have the opportunity to purchase a turn-key furniture package hand-selected by Darren Palmer and featuring his exclusive homewares range.

Darren Palmer attended and spoke at the Mulberry launch last night and gave insight into his decision to work with Art Group on the project and his vision for the finished product.

“Modern inclusions and materials play a big part in creating a sophisticated look. Mostly though, sophistication is best represented by a coherent and considered interior colour and material scheme. A well resolved interior palette will feel pleasing to the occupant. So, good design, great detailing and a well thought out set of materials and inclusions will create the sophistication that we all desire in our homes, but some find it hard to achieve.”

“There are three schemes in Mulberry, all playing with contrast. There are two low contrast options, one is a muted light neutral palette, the other is a mid to dark greypalette. These two palettes are balanced and feature lots of consistency across the flooring, cabinet and benchtop colours and materials, reflecting popular and timeless interior schemes that are desirable and livable. The third palette is a high contrast palette of walnut and warm white.”

“The walnut featured is very much influenced by interior and kitchen trends from Europe. It is possibly the more cutting edge of the three schemes but also features enough of the popular neutral palette to work with any home owner’s furniture and décor desires.”

“Everything used in the materials palette is chosen to create high impact, be durable and value for money. I wanted to create opportunities for interest through introducing textured elements like timber looks and concrete like finishes. I have also included terrazzo, the latest trend
in flooring sweeping the globe.”
