Move beyond this and you will notice the use of a stone accent wall that veers away from the contemporary narrative and yet seems to fit in with the modern setting all too easily! It is the wooden décor pieces though that clearly steal the spotlight here as they usher in textural and geometric contrast without ever disturbing the serene ambiance of the home.
The use of dark-toned wooden surfaces and finishes also adds to the tropical style of the home that is accentuated by the design of the ceiling and the lovely shutters. With summers getting really hot on this beautiful Aussie island the ‘completely open’ design allows for natural cooling with the ocean breeze flowing through the interior.

The color scheme inside the house is kept largely neutral with white being the hue of choice and black window frames defining and anchoring individual spaces ever so effectively.
