Laced with simplicity and an air of casualness this is a makeover that seamlessly fuses structural and aesthetic elements. Expanding an existing home to meet the growing needs of a young family the turns to the tried and tested method of blurring the lines between the interior and the inviting backyard.
Despite embracing a more traditional color scheme one associates with a beautiful beach house the interior designed by Pleysier Perkins is distinctly contemporary as the wall of white is broken by limed oak timber accents and a touch of color in each room.
It was Doherty Design Studio that brought the pops of color bespoke décor and exclusive details that elevated the style quotient of the interior. The result is a contemporary home where there is never a dull moment both indoors and outside.
Spread across four different levels every single room of the home is connected visually with the central garden and pool area. Designed by Cincopatasalgato the living areas kitchen and dining room showcase an indoor-outdoor interplay thanks to the use of large glass walls.
Every material chosen to craft the house such as the metallic exterior stone walls glass and steel pavilions and woodsy additions were picked for their durability and easy-to-maintain quality. This allows the kids a lot more freedom indoors blurs the line between the interior and the outdoor deck and pool area and gives the house a truly distinct personality.
The extensive use of glass doors for the new addition means that the parents can always keep an eye on the kids from almost every room in the house and even when they are out on the deck.
The top level holds a mezzanine reading nook and relaxation zone that overlooks the lower living area and also houses a small sleeping zone and the master suite. Each space seems to flow into the next throughout the house with surprising accent additions putting a smile on your face.
