Bringing contemporary comfort to a land that still seems untouched by modern razzmatazz the gorgeous cabin’s new interior is filled with a flood of natural light along with energizing pops of red.
We always love a house that is planet-friendly without going over the top in terms of both design and the green technology that it uses. Eco-friendly design is as much about smart planning and responding to the landscape as it is about new-age technology. Epitomizing this is the lovely set in the posh Melbourne suburb of .
A long 150 foot curtainwall surrounds the house and gives it its distinct façade while large glass walls open the living area towards the view outside. With changing seasons one sees the varying sights and sounds of the landscape become a part of the interior giving it a beautiful and diverse backdrop.
A wooden log cabin normally blends in with the natural environment but when that environment consists of mostly stone and big trees the dark wooden cottage absolutely stands out with its distinct brown color among the green and gray backdrop.
A smart blend of contrasting finishes that include copper stone terrazzo and beeswax plaster create a fun interior where artwork and accessories add bright and vivacious color.
A set of moving panels and a spacious shelf become the focal point of the family room with the panels sliding in and out of place to hide TV storage spaces and other compartments when not in use. A comfy daybed in green next to the window provides even more storage space with a slim work desk next to it becoming the study zone.
Not every home needs to be about a spectacular or unique façade that steals the spotlight turns heads and makes a big impact right off the bat. In fact a modest and unassuming façade that blends with other homes in the neighborhood offers advantages of its own.
