Robert Ellis is on the move; we caught up with the singer-songwriter in Nashville following his time spent in New York City.

Robert Ellis

“It was something else being in that sprawling, opulent apartment [in New York City,]” remembers Ellis. “I loved that pink couch.”

While he’s on the road, Ellis experiences all types of venues, and whether it’s an intimate club or the light-filled interior of a loft in Tribeca, he misses his personal creative space. “It’s a small place,” laughs Ellis. “I miss it though. I have a lot of comfort there; I have my coffee and I get into the groove. It’s inevitable that the space you’re in changes you – you just play and write differently.”

Behind the scenes

Find Robert Ellis on the road supporting Rodrigo y Gabriela and on his own through the fall.

We all have a passion. We all have a dream. For some, it’s about adventure. For others, it’s about tranquility. Our dreams are as vast and varied as the world is wide, but they all start with inspiration and inspiration starts with our surroundings. That’s what home is – what you choose to surround yourself with. Home is where you truly LIVE.

Auckland, New Zealand | Ross Hawkins & Jason Gaddes, New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty

The interiors of Edition are a response and a complement to the bold architecture of the building. Each living space has been designed to optimize sunlight year-round. Floor-to-ceiling windows emphasize the high stud and allow natural light to flood in, while every apartment has a space that connects to the outdoors; some have two or more.

Each residence’s living spaces are paved with silver-toned travertine tiles that extend on to the patio areas. In the generous dining areas, there’s more than enough room for a large dinner party with overhanging Flos pendant lights to create intimacy. Elsewhere, recessed ceiling lighting reinforces the feeling of spaciousness. In the living rooms, furniture can be custom-made by Bureaux to fill the space perfectly.

Master bedroom

The design of Edition is referenced in the apartment’s kitchen islands, which are beautiful stretches of mitred stone with cantilevered ends. These islands are the hub of each apartment’s kitchen; a stylish focal point and place to socialize when preparing meals.

Warm-toned, grey fumed oak cabinetry conceals high-end appliances from view and complements the Pietra grey marble backsplash. Discerning cooks will appreciate the Miele ovens and induction cooktops, along with the Miele dishwashers. All apartments also feature Bosch fridge-freezers and Italian tapware in the main kitchen spaces (and in the sculleries featured in some apartments).

amazing bathroom

Large travertine tiles, double sinks, and Italian tapware are standard in all bathrooms and lend a luxuriousness to the interiors. Overhead and handheld showers both feature, and some bathrooms also have baths. The master bedrooms are designed as calming retreats, easily able to accommodate a king-sized bed.

Secondary bedrooms are multi-functional, able to be interpreted equally well as studieshome gyms, or media rooms. Thick, lush carpet denotes comfort and relaxation, and walk-in wardrobes feature in the majority of the master bedrooms. As with the living spaces, furniture and fixtures can be custom-made by Bureaux for the bedrooms on request.
