For those who are minimalists at heart decorating a home with both style and sophistication can be a real challenging task. Minimalism requires discipline order and an ability to keep the space as de-cluttered as possible.
With a gabled roof the interior seems both spacious and cheerful and the light wooden tones of the ceiling and the walls add to the breezy summer charm. Large windows bring in both the panoramic views and ample light while smart pendants in white tend to melt away into the backdrop.
And if you’re looking for something a bit softer around the edges BMT’s egg-shaped Sea-Suite might fit the bill perfectly. The oblong design was actually first developed for a cruise liner terminal in Hong Kong but was reused to envision a series of beach homes and floating residences.
Dubbed this striking home in Melbourne is an old warehouse that brings along with it much of its original charm while providing modern functionality. Containing two separate homes that are rolled into one large unit the lovely residence can accommodate two families with ease or its homeowners can easily use it as a multi-generational home where everyone has ample individual space. Apart from a blend of two different styles – industrial and modern and the two different individual homes the revamped warehouse also combines the charm of exposed brick walls with the warmth of rich wood floors to deliver ‘twin elements’ in every sense of the word!
The two materials present a lovely contrast visually while bringing a touch of rustic beauty to an otherwise elegant modern residence. The two distinct wings form an L-shaped structure that is completely closed towards the street and opens up in an unabated fashion towards the rear using large sliding glass doors.
