Nothing is left to chance in this home and every detail works beautifully. The textures and lighting add drama and luxury, but also make the house a relaxed and welcoming space. From floors to the lighting system, the plugs, paint colours, the design on the doors, everything has been specifically chosen. Then there are certain recurring themes and textures – animal skin, marble, glass, mirrors. Anything that doesn't meet these exacting standards is then custom-made, right down to the drawer for Nespresso coffee capsules.

Outside may be hip, urban and gritty, but step past the grey front door and inside is a cool, luxurious space with an air of utter calm and tranquillity – where it’s immediately apparent that nothing within these 3,000 square feet has been casually thrown together. When it comes to symmetry, everything in this home comes in pairs. And then there’s the attention to detail.

Even in the hall, there aremultiple chandeliers rather than just one. The painting is by a Brazilian friend.
