What started out as a necessity has become a dramatic trend that is shaping homes across the world. Today we head back to one of modern industrial style’s birthplaces and look at a gorgeous apartment that is all about space-savvy elegance a dash of minimalism and plenty of textural contrast!
The new extension houses a contemporary kitchen and dining in neutral hues with warm timber surfaces providing the necessary warmth and textural contrast. Timber plays a major role in shaping the interior of the extension with even the pending lights above the dining table being crafted in wood and concrete!
As is the case with most heritage homes it is the rear addition that comes to the rescue here extending the living area even while leaving the two bedrooms at the front of the house largely untouched.
It is the courtyard that facilitates flow of natural light across the two levels and gives the interior an open and bright ambiance despite its private street façade. The use of white for the backdrop accentuates a sense of airiness while modern minimal décor keeps the living area uncluttered.
Both the pond and the mature landscape around the house give it a cloak of green and provide ample privacy even as the dashing white structure with black trims stands in captivating contrast. A cleverly concealed driveway snakes through the trees and leads you to the entry of the minimal residence.
Today it is the turn of a modern Californian Home in Venice Beach to experience the goodness of Nordic design at its breezy best as Electric Bowery combined it with mid-century accents and modern ergonomics to create the inviting. This dashing three-bedroom home welcomes you with an open plan living area along with a large outdoor living space and striking pitched roof!
It is a beautiful blend of contrasting eras with each offering something unique. With the latest addition housing the kitchen and the sitting zone it is the original farmhouse that contains the living area and the bedrooms.
