Apart from the framed glass door that swings open to connect the living area and the backyard a large glass window next to a custom wooden bench in the living room completely opens up the interior to the world outside. This allows the brick wall covered with Boston Ivy to become a part of the living space visually giving the Holden Street House a hint of green goodness!
Functionality and comfort are the two key aspects that defined the transformation with form taking a backseat at times. The wooden deck outside visually becomes a part of the living room and kitchen and adds textural contrast along with a stone fireplace that sits next to the glossy all-white contemporary kitchen. A household that is pragmatic and cozy to its core!
Along with various shades of blue it is the presence of gray in the living room and the dining area that gives the home its distinctly contemporary flavor and helps it move away from the typical beach house ambiance.
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.
Making the most of the limited space on offer the all-white backdrop in each room gives the interior a spacious crisp and casual appeal that becomes the signature style of this Aussie home.
