The block still screams the era, but the light and space inside this place is as ‘now’ as it gets. This is an apartment and block that have both transferred well to the modern era whist retaining plenty of period character.

The finish is a selling point too. It isn’t all original, but everything looks clean and fresh, with the ‘wow’ factor boosted be the interior design within this place. Ok, the furnishings aren’t part of the deal, but this is a great blueprint if you want to recreate the look with your own design pieces.
