Colonial style Perth home gets a luxurious feel with Statuario Venato

Featured Colour: Statuario Venato
Designer: 13 Interiors
Project Name: Wembley Downs Residence

Aspiring for a luxurious feel in a home requires meticulous attention to detail. And having the option to choose from Smartstone’s exclusive range certainly helps homeowners and designers realise this vision.

13 Interiors owner and designer Kelly Donougher has called working on the Wembley Down Residence Project in Perth “a renovator’s delight” as the owners set out to renovate an investment property to be their permanent home.

The design vision was to incorporate Hamptons and British colonial style with elements of their heritage and travels while creating luxury finishes that would stand the test of time.

Dubbed by the homeowners Akshee and Dhruv Shah as an “aesthetically-driven renovation”, the home features Statuario Venato in most indoor areas as kitchen benchtops, splashback, bathroom vanity benchtop and laundry room benchtop, which Kelly described as the perfect finish for this colonial-inspired home with timeless appeal.

“The marble grey veins complemented the interior finishes of the home creating a luxury feel. The durability of the product was also perfect for their kitchen, bathrooms and laundry. And who doesn’t love a luxury laundry, right?” Kelly said.

The most popular Smartstone surface, Statuario Venato is inspired by the Statuario marble, one of the most beautiful in the world, and features a luminous white background with fluid grey veining.

The design and colour palette were consistent, making it cost efficient as they were able to choose the same materials throughout the home and allowed their cabinetmaker to order material in bulk.

This amazing Perth home is also featured in the March 2020 issue of Home Beautiful.
