A woodsy overhang above the patio offers shade during the hot summer months and acts as a striking pergola with unassuming décor and a neutral color scheme completing a makeover that finds balance between respecting the past and paving way to the future. With an unaltered street façade and a revitalized interior this Aussie home offers the best of both worlds.
If there is one design and decorating trend that seems to be catching on fast and only growing with each day then it is the expansive use of wood in homes and offices. The polished plastic surfaces of the 90’s seem to firmly be on the out as homeowners long for a sense of serenity and coziness.
A narrow entryway leads into the main home where nothing feels conventional! A sunken living area with home bar is surrounded by walls of books that extend all the way up to the ceiling. These floor-to-ceiling bookshelves give the home color personality and also showcase the homeowner’s love for books without confining it to just a single study room.
Off-white concrete blocks oiled timber and contemporary finishes ensure that the home feels both relaxing and exquisite at the same time without the use of bright colors or bold art work. Serene and practical this Sydney residence is truly one-of-a-kind!
There was a time when bold color was hip and flowery patterns all the rage. Then came the 90’s that brought along with them the much-loved cubicle and modern design that relied largely on simple straight lines along with colors like cream and beige.
