Designed by Pinheiro Martinez Arquitetura the home features a distinct nautical tinge in every room of the house as the décor and accessories add this touch of beach-inspired beauty. Model sailboats ship wheels throw pillows with a nautical motif and colors such as deep blue and vivacious red come together to create this wonderful fusion of modern and coastal.
This is a home design trend that is on the up and up with most homeowners wanting an extension that acts as a transition zone between the existing main structure and the open courtyard or patio. Crafted by Schulberg Demkiw Architects the transformed Aussie residence relies on a sense of openness and interlinked spaces to fashion the perfect family home.
As is the norm these days it is once again large sliding glass doors and a double-height wall of windows above that open up the otherwise ‘closed home’ towards the small private garden outside.
Despite its abundant use of white to set the tone for that classic beach-style interior the clever use of bright colors in each and every room gives the home a flavor and personality of its own. White sheer curtains floating wooden shelves and elegant lighting complete this relaxing Brazilian escape.
The dramatic 25-feet-high open living area on the lower level contains the living space dining room and kitchen with each area flowing into the next. Instead of completely shunning its past the converted church actually embraces its rich heritage with fabulous stained glass windows bringing pops of yellow red and green into each room.
The kitchen alteration was carried out by Christy Allen Designs who also aided the owners in picking the right colors décor lighting options artwork and accessories for the rest of the house. The final result is a comfy contemporary interior that exudes an air of refinement.
