Wooden surfaces a dining table and decor bring some much needed warmth to the interior while smart lighting accentuates this visual beauty. A tranquil bedroom that borrows from the color palette of the living area and a small bathroom complete what is a truly refined and relaxing modern home.
A lap pool with generous deck space and a social zone making up the courtyard are connected with the living area kitchen and dining space on the lower level through large sliding glass doors. The generous deck is also accessible from the master bedroom on the top floor as a cantilevered walnut timber staircase connects both levels.
The small living space and sitting area set the mood as the walls of the rooms are covered with amazing bright artwork that grabs your attention instantly. In fact you almost tend to overlook the presence of the unassuming decor and the existing wooden beams add a fascinating twist to the entire area.
The backdrop uses neutral shades along with a generous amount of gray while plush fabric throws pillows and accessories add pops of bright color. A stunning contemporary kitchen with a cheerful ambiance an ingenious dining space and a trendy nursery make up the lower level.
Previous partitions that created a clustered and boring look on the lower level of the house were replaced by smart strong steel beams to create an open plan living area. Wooden ceiling beams a concrete fireplace structure and lovely flooring that demarcates the living room from the kitchen and the dining areas give the home plenty of textural contrast.
Just next to it is the small dining area and the transition from the old heritage home to the new dazzling addition seems almost seamless. Next to it is the glass box with the sitting area and both new structures overlook the lovely pool and the backyard.
