It is amazing how jaded life makes us as we grow older and the fascination that we have for little things seems to fade away all too soon in the real world. Yet some things remain constant like our love all things that fly high in the air and a desire to find a quiet lonely nook that takes us away from the rush of the world.
A relaxing contemporary home is as much about the outdoors as it is about the ambiance inside and the in Australia seems to bring together both these elements in a perfect fashion. Designed by Lachlan Shepherd Architects the fabulous family home creates a seamless indoor-outdoor interplay even while ensuring that those inside enjoy adequate privacy.
It is the new living area that is the heart of the rejuvenated residence with the kitchen in white sitting on one side and the dining area on the other. A series of pendants in gray recessed lighting and a lineup of smart windows illuminate this area perfectly both during the day and after sunset.
Transformed with modern suave and an open inviting vibe by ITN Architects a series of glass doors connect the new gallery space and living area with the patio and garden outside – a perfect blend of the interior and the outdoors.
High ceilings ensure that this stylish extension feels dramatic even while giving the homeowners a perfect place to hold parties and family gatherings with ease. Since the interior transitions seamlessly into the patio and the garden the ‘social zone’ feels even more spacious and refreshing!
The living area is open inviting and is draped in a layer of hardwood. It is a bespoke shelf in wood and metal that grabs your attention here and becomes the bright and beautiful focal point of an otherwise neutral setting.
Apart from the living room TV wall a cozy nook in the corner a reading space with sleek floor lamp and comfy chair along with the bedroom cabinets use wood in a light grain making a big difference to the overall ambiance. Dashing pendants in black nifty LED lighting and fabulous recessed lights complete a home that feels relaxing and ravishing.
