Using a colour palette of navy, greys and white, which are showcased throughout the space, alongside brass and metal details, the spaces become reminiscent of looking into a jewellery box.
“Scott Carver’s sophisticated interior design creates impact through decorative wall lights used to create rhythm, bronze screens as a considered backdrop for events, reflective surfaces, such as an antique mirror to bring daylight into the space, bespoke chandeliers, blown glass light fittings, careful framing of views across Hyde Park, and screens and feature seating arrangements to create a strong sense of arrival,” says Angela.
Scott Carver sought to optimise this outlook as much as possible by framing views looking out from the function spaces, using reflective materials, including an antique mirror in the ballroom, as well as throughout the Pre-Function area to bring daylight into the space and offering reflected views of park.
The verticality of the Ballroom is enhanced by cladding the existing columns in a dark timber and extending this cladding all the way up to the ceiling to create drama. Decorative wall lights on each column were used to create a rhythm around the elegant space. The use of bronze screens as a feature element in the Ballroom creates a considered backdrop for events, while the far wall is clad in an antique mirror to bring daylight into the space and elevate the grandeur of this space. Bespoke chandeliers designed by Point of View bring sparkle to this sophisticated interior.
Hyde Park Room
The Hyde Park room is designed to be a classic, yet contemporary space, perfectly suited to weddings and events. Classic panel trim moulding creates architectural interest, while elegant sheers frame views across Hyde Park. Blown glass light fittings bring an added elegance to this space.
The Pre-Function area provides a transition between the grand atrium lobby and the elegance of the function areas. The use of screens, an antique mirror, and feature seating arrangements creates a strong sense of arrival. The Pre-Function area is anchored in the sophisticated selection of fabrics and finishes of the furniture. This provides a teaser as to what will be revealed in the adjoining rooms. The carpet is an interpretation of the existing hotel, playing with the existing geometric patterns and lines throughout the hotel.
“Our interior design team have bought their extensive hotel and resort experience in Australia, as well as internationally, to Sheraton Grand,” says Angela. “Sheraton are an incredible client to work for and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
