The dining room and kitchen of the once-boring cottage home now showcase a more modern sheen with large windows bringing the outdoors inside. A minimal bedroom with walls partly covered in oak and a bathroom in black and white borrow from the curated crisp and classy color scheme and style of the living space. Kids’ rooms with multiple storage options and a space-savvy design complete the transformation for the Sydney home that is a cultured urban delight!
The dark exterior of the home stands in vivid contrast to the divine natural landscape that surrounds it and the more cheerful interior clad mostly in neutral hues. With a bold red door large window frames and a classic silhouette the residence exudes understated sophistication.
There are only a handful of accommodations in the world where you can see fishes swimming past your window and Tanzania’s Manta Resort is one of these rare treasures. This remote getaway is almost like its own waterborne island with the chance to indulge in three separate experiences of the ocean: an underwater suite a sea-level deck and an elevated roof terrace that will make you feel like you’re on top of the world.
The refined appeal of the summer house comes from the purity of its design and the innate minimalism that has made Danish design so endearing to the world. Every little detail is carefully curated and the decor kept as unfussy as possible to accentuate this idea of frugality and functionality.
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.
While the cedar section contains the guest rooms and the courtyards the structure clad in stone holds the living areas and a unique art collection. Combining the essence of the panoramic rustic scenery around it with a distinct contemporary vibe this charming residence offers the best of both worlds!
On the inside partitions are kept to a bare minimum as an open floor plan visually connects the kitchen the dining space and the family zone. One can see industrial-style lighting and glass partitions with dark metallic frames throughout the residence while understated contemporary décor fills each room. Lighting plays a major role in the overall ambiance of the home with natural ventilation flowing from one room to the next. Geometric tiles in the kitchen add pattern to the space while throw pillows and bedding bring color to the minimal bedroom in white.
